Indonesia: Ujung Kulon National Park

23 May

The most southwest point of the biggest island Java has one of the many national parks of Indonesia. Ujung Kulon National Park is a uninhabited park since 1883. In this year the vulcano Krakataru erupted, but the tsunami that followed destroyed all the human live in the park. This, however, made sure the rhinos survived. 

The 1.2 kilometers long park has the shape of a triangle and is full of rare species. Therefor a lot of scientist like to examine here. The rhinos are another special thing about this park. Besides the scientist, tourist visit this park for sometimes the same reasons, who doesn’t want to see a rhino?! You can explore the park in different ways. You can just walk through it, or take a kayak tour.

You can enjoy the rapid rivers, white beaches and relax in the thermal springs. If you’re done of all the animal spotting at land you can snorkel in the blue see along the coast and check out the coral riff below. You can also go deeper into the water and dive. Or just throw out your fishing rod and catch a nice fish.

Because there are no civilians here, nature just goes its way. You’ll see trees like you’ve never seen them before and animals which can’t be found anywhere in the world.
