Ulu-Ulu Temburong National Park with Lunch – Day Tour, 7 Hours
- The national park is situated within the Batu Apoi Forest reserves and lies at the confluence of the Temburong and Belalong Rivers. Covering an area of 50,000 hectares, only 100 hectares is designated as park visitation area, thus the park is a safe haven for flora and fauna. There is no human or modern encroachment in this area except for the field research centre in Ulu Belalong. The biodiversity of this area is one of the best in the world.
