Covering 25,000 hectares of land is Baluran National Park, home to a savanna and Mount Baluran, which is an inactive volcano. Besides hundreds of bird species, the park is also a habitat for many wild animals such as peacocks, pigs, monkeys, deer, bull and more.
With an endless slew of activities, visitors may partake in safari treks, diving, snorkeling and canoeing at Bama Beach, mountain hiking and climbing, cave exploring at Japan Cave, or watching animals wander freely at Bekol Savanna. There is also accommodation within the park for those who wish to spend the night.
Alas Purwo National Park, one of the oldest tropical rainforests of Indonesia, comprises savannas, mangroves, lowland monsoon forests and coral-filled beaches. Its name means ancient forest in Javanese and legend has it that Alas Purwo is the site where earth first emerged from the ocean.
Aside from being home to many endangered animal species like the Javanese bull, Asiatic wild dog and silvered leaf monkey, Alas Purwo encompasses many caves that bear spiritual significance, attracting many pilgrims and mystics throughout the year.
