Gunung Gading National Park is a home for the largest flower in the world, Rafflesia. If you are lucky enough, you will see the Rafflesia in bloom or you can check earlier with the park office. This park is a suitable place for nature lovers, jungle tracking and hiking to the peak of Gunung Gading (900 meters). There are also a few beautiful, cool clear waterfalls in the park, and waterfall 1, 3 and 7 are accessible for the visitor and suitable for leisurely picnics. Let the pictures do the talking.
