Panti Forest Trekking Bunker Trail
The Panti Forest Reserve covers nearly 275 sq km of lowland dipterocarp rainforest. Panti Forest is home to over 25 species of mammals, including the critically endangered Malayan Tiger, Asiatic Elephant and Malayan Tapir. It is also home to the very loveable White-handed Gibbon, Pig-tailed Macaques and Banded Langurs.
With over 250 species of birds have thus far been recorded including hornbills, barbets, spiderhunters, woodpeckers and sunbirds it is no wonder the Bunker Trail is world renown among the international birdwatching community.
An early start ensures that we arrive at the Bunker Trail in time to listen to the rainforest ‘dawn chorus’ made up of song birds and the haunting calls of the gibbons. At the entrance to the Bunker Trail we transfer onto rear of our bird mobile and slowly drive along this 14 km long stretch of dirt road on the look out for birds, primates and other wildlife. Several kms into the journey we will stop and to trek and explore a quiet jungle trail. Here your nature guide will unravel some of the interesting plants, trees, insects and small mammals we may chance upon. By late morning on the return journey to Desaru Coast will drive to cliff location for its scenic views of the South China Sea while enjoying some light refreshments.
