Gunung Gading Rafflesia Safari (1D)
Go in search of the elusive Rafflesia, the world's largest flower!
MORE ABOUT THIS TOUR
This package takes you to the Gunung Gading National Park on a search for the world's largest flower, the Rafflesia. It is prudent to check whether the Rafflesia is in bloom before embarking on this tour as it is not available all year round. One of nature's more curious creations, the foul smelling Rafflesia still retains its ability to tantalize the imaginations of the many who wait in anticipation to get a glimpse of it.
ItineraryYour search begins upon your arrival at the Gunung Gading National Park after a two hour drive from Kuching. If you are lucky and the Rafflesia is in bloom, then join a guided walk through the Rafflesia site to view this elusive flower. Do remember to be careful at the site so as not to damage any of these precious blooms.
If you have the time, explore the other walking trails that offer beautiful views of the rainforest and go for a relaxing swim at some of the lovely cascading waterfalls and streams within the park. You could also plan for a picnic at the nearby scenic beaches at Siar and Pandan. Return to Kuching after a day of enjoyment, hopefully with pictures of the elusive Rafflesia!
