Situated deep in one of the world’s most prominent lungs, Borneo, this area makes a wonderful home for the adorable orangutan primates, as well as other unusual natural species such as the bearded pig, pythons, and pitcher plant. The park, with an area of 416,000 hectares, consists of forests, swamps, mangroves, and even a coastal beach, presenting visitors with a wide range of flora and fauna. Beyond a popular ecotourism destination, the park also houses research centers and conservation facilities for orangutans.
Throughout the enormous Indonesian archipelago, Bunaken National Park covers one of the planet’s thickest spots for marine biodiversity. It has a very rich coral ecosystem lying on the seabed, including the remarkable and massive perpendicular coral wall inhabited by various corals, sponges, and mollusks. With those remarkable features, Bunaken National Park has at least 20 popular diving points with varying tourist attractions, difficulty levels, and depths. Beyond the sea, this national park’s beauty expands to its land area, with plush palm trees, coconut trees, and widespread species of wild deer, macaque, and bear cuscus.
The extensive national park spans over four provinces in Sumatra and includes the country’s second highest volcano peak, Mount Kerinci. The pure nature helps wildlife to flourish in this area, making the national park a home to a mixture of unusual species. More than 4,000 plant species also call the park home, including the world’s largest flower, Rafflesia arnoldi, and also the loftiest flower, Titan arum. This zone is also the natural habitat of endangered wild species of tigers, rhinoceroses, and birds.
