Bako National Park
Bako National Park is the oldest national park in Sarawak, Malaysia. It covers a location of 27.27 km² at the peak of the peninsula named Muara Tebas at the opening of Bako and Kuching rivers. We have enjoyed the view where mangroves fringe the shores and the stony headlands are concaved with clear beaches. The park highlights several of the state’s main kinds of flora and fauna in the rainforest, traditional fishing villages, and the unique sandstone environment that creates the geological structure of the plateau.
The legend’s ending is said to have two different versions. First, the king of the heavens got outraged with Santubong’s actions and he cursed her and transformed her in to a mountain, now known as
. The second version that Santubong felt remorse and succumbed to depression over what she did to Sejinjang. She committed suicide and her body collapsed beside the headless corpse of Sejinjang and the gods transformed them into mountains – Mount Santubong Mount Sejinjang and . (If you will gaze at Mount Santubong , you’ll notice that it takes a shape of a woman lying down. And if you look further, you will perceive that theirs is another mountain close to it – Mount Santubong . We would like to share the video of popular local song on the stories of the princesses, enjoy J Mount Sejinjang
