Wildlife

Lubuk Baji have a very reasonable chance of either seeing wild orangutans or finding signs of their presence (calling, tracks, nests and bark stripping on tree trunks). Researchers counted approximately 2,500 orangutans all over the national park, completely living in the wild. There are no feeding places, so they are crossing the park, searching for food and around 5 pm start building their nest. Other animals which can be observed in the area are gibbons (Hylobates agilis), red-leaf monkeys (Presbytis rubicunda), Malayan sun bears (Helarctos malayanus), hornbills (Buceros, sp.), woodpeckers (Blythpicus rubiginasus) and many interestings amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates. The path between Air Pauh-the last village border with the site-and Lubuk Baji runs through different vegetation types: bamboo groves, durian forest-gardens, lowland dipterocarp forest and swamp forest habitat. All of which can be easily observed around the Lubuk Baji waterfall area. Floral species include Iron-woods (Eusideroxylon zwageri), Dipterocarpaceae, Anacardiaceae, ferns and tree-ferns, medicinal plants, many fruit trees and various species of beautiful orchids.

Lubuk Baji Waterfall

The waterfall of Lubuk Baji consists of two adjacent falls approximately 15 m high and 8 m wide and a small pool dug by the clear mountain water over centuries of slow erosion through the hard metamorphic rocks, which characterises the geology of the area. The stream then continues to flow in a series of small rapids over boulders, surrounded by densed natural vegetation.

Batu Bulan Cliff

From the top of Batu Bulan (Moon-stone) Cliff, visitors can enjoy the marvellous view of the Palung and Panti mountains, the densed forest area and the Karimata Straight bordering the park at the stunning beach of Pulau Datok.

Social Culture

Begasing village, lying at the national park’s border, has a very different atmosphere from the other villages surrounding the park: the inhabitants are settlers originally from the Bali Island. A strong Hindu culture affects every aspect of the village lifes: agriculture, architecture and forest management, as well as traditional ceremonies and costumes. The cultural activities in Begasing will enrich the overall experience in Gunung Palung National Park. Bali cultures among Malay ethnics!

    We just came back from a trip to Gunung Palung and thoroughly enjoyed it! The spend a few nights at the Lubuk Baji site was definitely worth it. The hike to the camp site can be a bit tough, especially if you’re not used to a lot of hiking. But the forest, the sounds, the clean water, the fauna and flora, definitely are worth the efforts. We had a chance to see gibbons and some other monkeys, hornbills, other birds, butterflies and some fascinating insects. We heard the sound of an orangutan, but were not able to see him at the Lubuk Baji site (but we did close to Batu Barat!). But don’t let that stop you to spend a few nights at Lubuk Baji, we loved it and if time allows we would do it again.
