    Meet a driver at your hotel in Kuching city for an 8am departure, then begin the 53-mile (85-km) trip to Gunung Gading National Park, a roughly 1.5-hour drive. You’ll be driving through a countryside landscape of villages and farms, then pass through the fishing community of Lundu.

    Upon arrival at Gunung Gading National Park, begin a 4- to 5-hour hike into the forest, trekking towards Waterfall No. 7, a site where the rafflesia flower is known to bloom. Trek past a series of waterfalls, moving across steep terrain, and listen to the sounds of birds and wildlife in the tropical foliage.

    There’s no guarantee of spotting a rafflesia in bloom—the flower has a brief flowering period, which depends on the natural cycles of pollination, but with an expert guide to lead the way, you’ll have the best possible chance of finding one.

    If desired, pause for a swim beneath the waterfall, then begin the return trip to the park entrance. This full-day tour concludes with transfer to Kuching city, and drop-off at your hotel.

    Our professional English speaking guide will collect you from your hotel lobby in Kuching city around 8:00am by an air-conditioned minivan and head to Gunung Gading National Park. It is situated about 53 miles (85km) from Kuching city, a 1.5 hours drive will bring you passing by a local villages, farms until you reach the small town of Lundu. Upon arrival at Gunung Gading National Park, we will search for the amazing rare flower, The Rafflesia. We will need to trek towards the waterfall No. 7, about 4-5 hours to witness this beautiful flower. So, you are recommended to bring more drinking water and wear comfortable walking/trekking shoes. We will be passing by several waterfalls on the trail and our tour guide will share some information about the park during the walk as the path is uphill and steep in places. Enjoy cool fresh air at the park and observe forest flora and fauna in the mist of the breezy forest, birds, and some wildlife. As the Rafflesia flower's blooming depends on its pollinator and has a brief flowering period, so we cannot guarantee you will see the flower blooms – it takes a bit of luck. You can enjoy a very cold and refreshing swim in the beautiful waterfalls or on the nature’s pool down in the park station if you want to. Please do not forget it gets dark relatively early in the rainforest, so allow enough time for you to return back to the park entrance as overnight stays in the forest are not permitted. We will transfer you back to your hotel safely after the tour finish in the late evening.
