FD tour to Ujung Kulon National Park


| May 15, 2020

The Ujung Kulon National Park is located in the south-west of Java, encompassing the peninsula and a number of uninhabited offshore islands. Established in 1921 and designated an Unesco world heritage site in 1992, it is Indonesia's oldest national park. Its protected status is due to its importance as a study area of inland volcanoes and several species of endangered plants and animals, most notably a small population of Javan rhinoceroses. From Handeuleum Island it is possible to take a canoe journey up the Cigenter river, looking out for crocodiles, monkeys, kingfishers and hornbills along the way. At the Cigenter feeding ground, 'banteng' (south-east Asian wild cattle) and many small bird species can be seen. Share:
