My purpose in going to Bako was to trek and to see some wildlife particularly the proboscis monkeys which thrive here.
A 15-minute boat ride was all it took to reach Bako. As it was low tide, we had to get off some way from the beach and wade in the water (wear slippers).
I was on the lookout for croc. None : (
The varied terrain.
Scorching hot. Sweat was pouring off my limbs like a leaky pipe.
One misstep will send you tumbling into the stream. Hot, hot!
A glorious view from the hilltop.
Don't be a hero. Bring food, snacks and two big bottles of water. Heat stroke is a possibility so consider a hat/cap or umbrella.
I was disappointed in not being able to spot any wildlife. But Bako is rich in birdlife, and I was delighted to spot some birds I'd never seen before.
