Loagan Bunut National Park


Loagan Bunut National Park was declared a national park in 1991 covering an area of 10,736 hectares. This park is not as popular compared to other national parks such as Bako National Park due to its distance from the major towns. It takes 3 hours by four-wheel drive from Miri and half of the journey is through gravel road. Most visitors come for a day trip from Miri but for those who prefer to rest after a long drive, basic accommodation with electricity generated by generator can be arranged.

The Loagan Bunut lake is the largest natural lake in Sarawak covering an area of 650 hectares. It got its source of water from Baram River, Tinjar River and Bunut River. During the dry season from the months of February to May, the lake may dry out for up to 3 weeks. During this time, you can even walk on the base of the lake.
