Gunung Gading National Park is a 2-3 hour drive from Kuching and is Sarawak's main conservation area for the Rafflesia, the world's largest flower, also the offical state flower of Sabah.
The Rafflesia flowers can grow up to 100 centimeters and weigh up to 10 kilograms. The Rafflesia's are noted to give off a vile rotten meat smell to attract insects.
The Gunung Gading National Park also offers a number of attractive walking trails, leading through primary rainforest to beautiful jungle waterfalls. A packed lunch is included.
Note : Blooming Rafflesia flowers may be a fair distance from park headquarters, so visitors should be prepared to walk for some time in hot humid conditions.
