    Bukit Baka - Bukit Raya National Park

    Bukit Baka - Bukit Raya National Park



    Formerly two different nature reserves, Bukit Baka-Bukit Raya now is one national park of 180,000 ha. The park lies at the border of East and Central Kalimantan provinces and comprises a part of the Schwaner mountains. Bukit Raya (2278 m) is the highest mountain in the area. In the park you will find mountain forest and tropical rainforest. The traditional Ot Danum-Dayak still live in these forests.

    Access

    Bukit Baka-Bukit Raya National Park is an other poorly accessible park on Kalimantan. There are two routes to the park. The first is timeconsuming and relatively cheap, whereas the second possibility will cost you more money but will save you time. A third possibility is to access the park from Palangkaraya, but this route will take a couple of days.
    Take a bus from Bayu Layang station in Pontianak to Sintang (7-12 hr). From Sintang catch a bus or boat to Nanga Pinoh and from there continue by boat to Popai. In Popai you'll find the headquarters of Pt. Sari Bumi Kusumah, a timber company. Popai is still 35 km from the entrance of the park but you can get a lift on one of the trucks of the timber company or the local KSDA centre.

    Take the plane from Pontianak to Nanga Pinoh. From Nanga Pinoh: see above. Permits and information are available at the KSDA office in Pontianak or Palangkaraya.
