Welcome to Gunung Palung National Park

Now operating under a new administrator, Gunung Palung has made laudable progress toward both curbing illegal logging, and opening the tourism market to local communities and outside companies. After a nearly four-year struggle, the village of Sedahan has regained permission to take visitors to the Swiss Family Robinson camp at Lubuk Baji in the foothills behind their home, and Canopy Indonesia is poised to begin offering the trip as well. Unfortunately, official park zoning makes the primary forests at Cabang Panti research camp explicitly off-limits to tourism (though somehow Nasalis still advertises trips there via a Gunung Palung summit trek – for a price.)
