Ulu Temburong National Park
The first materialisation of Brunei’s conservation effort, the Ulu Temburong National Park was established and protected since 1991. Known as the “Green Jewel of Brunei,” the national park covers roughly 40% of the Temburong District with a staggering land area of 550 square kilometres.
The conservation efforts in the park was a success considering the teeming flora and fauna enlivening the serene, lush, and naturally beautiful landscape of the area. Some of its popular residents are Müller’s Bornean gibbon, hornbills, rhinos, and butterflies. Also, watch out for Wagler’s pit viper on the treetops. The park is complete with breathtaking landscapes: valleys, lowland plains, wide rainforest, rivers, and coastlines. Take note that the park can only be reached via longboats through the rivers from the country’s capital, Bandar Seri Begawan and multiple boat transfers. The travel to the park might be tiring, but the healing effect of the park’s tranquility is worth it. A must visit if you really want to understand the essence of a relaxing escapade!
