Attraction and Activities




Telok Paku

It takes about an hour passing through a cliff forest before you reach the small secluded beach of Telok Paku. Proboscis monkeys are often seen during seen during the early morning or late afternoon. Move slowly, keep as quite as possible and listen out for strange grunts or movements in the canopy.


Telok Delima

Telok Delima is one of the best areas in the park for spotting proboscis monkeys and is only 45 minutes from the Park Office. As the Lintang trail bears right and climbs a hill, you are in prime proboscis territory. Listen out for strange grunting noises or the crash of vegetation. If you hear something, stop and be as quiet as possible.  Scan the forest and try to observe where the strange noises come from. If you are lucky, you may see a harem of proboscis monkeys.


Telok Pandan Kecil & Telok Pandan Besar

The one and half hour trek to Telok Pandan Kecil is one of Bako's most popular. It ascends the forested hills overlooking Telok Assam, reaching the plateau covered in scrub vegetation and continues along a sandy path lined with carnivorous pitcher plants before reaching a cliff top with stunning view of the secluded bay below the famous sea stack just offshore. A 10 minutes descent through cliff vegetation brings you to one of the beaches in the park where you can swim. While swimming, watch out for monkeys who steal unguarded bags. The Telok Pandan Besar trails ends at a cliff top with views of the beach.


Telok Sibur

From the Park Office, it takes about three and half hours to reach the end of the Telok Sibur trail.  First, follow the Tajor trail to the waterfall. Continue along the main trail for another 45 minutes until you reach a junction and the beginning of the Sibur trail. After a very steep 45 minutes descent, a walk through the mangrove and a wade across a river, you will finally reach the longest beach in Bako.




Telok Limau

This is Bako's long distance trail.  It takes six or seven hours from the Park Office to reach the small beach at Telok Limau. You pass through rich rainforests, scrub land and swamp forests, cross small stream and climb a number of hills with excellent views of the whole Muara Tebas peninsula. You can camp at Telok Limau and return the next day, or arrange for a boat to pick you up.


Telok Keruin

Even though the trail is far from Park Office, the Telok Keruin trail is still being used. It is usually done as a side trek from Telok Limau. The first section is a 15-20 minutes climb through the forest until you reach a scrub section, then trek for another 25 minutes before you reach the Telok Keruin trail. Shortly after the junction, the trail descends to an area of scrub vegetation. Look out for pitcher plants that line the side of the trail. There are four short side-trails which lead to the Bukit Keruin lookout, a small rock pool, the Muara Tebas lookout point and the Tanjung Keruin and Tanjung Po viewpoints. The last section of the trail is a very steep descent into a mangrove forest. The trail then continues through the mangroves. Look out for the marks on the trees that show the way to the deserted beach, one of the best in the park.


Ulu Assam

To reach Ulu Assam, head through the swamp forest and a flat section where proboscis monkeys are sometimes seen. At the 'Beware of the Bees' sign, the trail climbs steeply and at times you must hang on to tree roots to keep your balance. At the top, you are rewarded with breathing views of Bako's coastline.


Ulu Serait

Ulu Serait is deep inside the park and the trail passes through scrub, padang vegetation and swamp forest. From the Lintang junction to the base of Bukit Gondol, is about an hour and a half. This trail connects the Lintang trail with the Bukit Gondol hill walk.





This trail takes about an hour and a half and ends at the park boundary. It is not frequently used and is somewhat secluded. It’s a good place for seeing some of Bako's rainforest giants.



From the Park Office, it takes about two and half hours to reach the waterfall. The Tajor passes scrub and padang vegetation and ends with a steep climb down to a small beach. The trail also passes the Tajor Waterfall, a popular resting spot. The waterfall is quite small but it has a beautiful jungle setting and a small dip pool.


Bukit Gondol

This semi-circular loop trail passes over Bukit Gondol: the highest point in Bako at 260 meters. From the top of the hill, there are excellent views of Pulau Lakei and Muara Tebas. The loop trek takes about 45 minutes.


Bukit Keruing

This trail connects Bukit Gondol with Tajor and passes some mighty rainforest giants. It passes along the slopes of Bukit Keruing, the second highest point in Bako. From Paya Jelutong to the Tajor Waterfall takes about an hour and a half.




Paya Jelutong

This trail is actually a short cut for those who do climb Bukit Gondol. Although it is a very short trail, it offers the opportunity of seeing a fresh water swamp forest. The most dominant species in the area is Jelutong (softwood used for making pencils).


Pulau Lakei

This small island has a superb white sand beach. The National Parks Department has a small guardhouse located on the island. Trips to the island can be arranged with local boatmen. There are some mysterious rock paintings just a short walk from the beach.
