Welcome to Gunung Palung National Park

It's an exciting prospect: with a large population of wild orang-utans (thought to number almost 2000), hundreds of acrobatic gibbons, sun bears, clouded leopards and old-growth trees so large four people can't reach around them, the park is one of the last great pockets of primary rainforest on Borneo island.

Through the national park service and hard-working NGOs, Gunung Palung has made laudable progress toward both curbing illegal logging and opening the tourism market to local communities. However, official park zoning makes the primary forests at Cabang Panti research camp explicitly off-limits to tourism.
