Ulu Temburong National Park

Duration : 6 hours

Ulu Temburong Brunei’s first National Park. It has been protected since 1991 and preserved for scientific research and low impact Eco-tourism. Due to its remote location, there are few visitors and the journey itself is an adventure.

You’ll pass by dense mangrove forest and may see some of the vast array of wildlife along the way if you are lucky. Vehicles will take you from Bangar Town, to Batang Duri (the end of the roads). From there, travel upstream through the rapids of the Temburong River using traditional longboats, to Nattional Park entrance.

Explore along 385m distance path walkways to Canopy(sky tower) located on hill ridge. Enjoy spectacular view canopy forest resemblance like green ocean wave.   Enjoy a great picnic lunch at Rainforest Nature Camp under shady Dipterocarpus obloglofolius tree. Free at leisure swim and relaxing.
