BACKGROUND
INFORMATIONS

Gunung Gading national Park is located in the Lundu District, southwest of sarawak. The Park consists of rugged mountain peaks which provides a scenic backdrop to the nearby beaches at Pandan and Siar. The waterfalls in the upper reaches of Sungai Lundu have become a popular recreational destination for both local and foreign visitors. The more adventurous visitors can take a hike right up to the peak of Mount Gading which is 900 meters high.



Gading is the home to numerous rare plants including the world's largest flower, the Rafflesia tuan-mudae (bunga pakma) At full bloom this giant flower streches nearly one meter in width.

The flowers can be found on specific vines like the Tetrastigma. The spores settle on the host plant and develop into a bud which then becomes a gigantic flower, brownish red in colour. It stays in full bloom for about a week only. 

The main pollinator for this flower is the carrion fly. 

"Seeing a blooming Rafflesia"
A trip to Gunung Gading may be incomplete without catching the rare sight of the blooming Raffesia. However, these unique plants bloom infrequently and have brief flowering period. 

Visitors are advised to check with the Park Headquarters at Gunung Gading National Park or the National Park Booking Office to find out if any flowers are about to bloom or already in full bloom. even if there is no blooming Rafflesia to see, swimming in the jungle streams, hiking the jungle trails, walkingin the Park and visiting the beaches and the whole of Lundu make the visit just as worthwhile.

"Facilities "
The National Park & Wildlife Division (Forest Department Sarawak) has built plank walks and jungle trails close to where the Rafflesia are commonly found, and they are often viewed from here. 

These jungle trails and plank walks allow the visitors to tour the park without damaging the delicate ecosystem particularly the young Rafflesia budding all over the forest floor. If the plant is flowering deeper in the forest, the park staffs or trained freelance guides will take visitors to the site.

There is no canteen within the Park. The seafood in Lundu is fresh and cheap. There are several restaurants here, too.
Other facilities in the Park include jungle trails, public toilets information centre, 24-hour electricity and treated water.
