The Mystical Bloom of the World Largest Flower – The Rafflesia

Experience the breathtaking beauty of Gunung Gading National Park on our exciting tour package! As you explore this rugged complex of mountains covering 4,106 hectares, you’ll be awestruck by the stunning peaks that dominate the entire Lundu region. The highest peak, Gunung Gading, stands tall at 906 meters, offering magnificent views of the surrounding area.

One of the most remarkable features of Gunung Gading National Park is the Rafflesia, the world’s biggest flower. This rare and unique plant, which blooms sporadically, is a jungle parasite and has no leaves, roots, or stem. The Rafflesia is also known for its strong and distasteful odor, making it the world’s most odious plant. This incredible flower is the primary reason why Gunung Gading was gazetted as a National Park in 1983.

During your tour, you’ll also have the opportunity to visit the park’s waterfalls, located in the upper reaches of the river that flows through Lundu. These beautiful waterfalls are a popular destination for locals and foreigners alike, providing a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The park is also home to numerous other rare and exotic plants, including the spectacular Rafflesia, locally called Tuan Mudae (bunga pakma), which can stretch nearly one meter in diameter when in full bloom. Although there is no specific flowering season, past blooming usually occurs during the third and last quarter of the year, and each bloomed flower lasts only an average of 5 days. Our mandatory guided walk to the blooming site ensures that you observe very strict care during your visit.
