Temporary halt to all water activities at Loagan Bunut National Park

KUCHING: The Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) has issued a notice ordering all water-based activities at Loagan Bunut National Park to be suspended temporarily, with immediate effect.

“Now that the North East Monsoon has set in, there have been frequent rains and strong winds. Such condition is known to cause unpredictable or sudden huge swells at the Loagan Bunut (lake), which could be dangerous.

“The suspension order would remain, at least until the monsoon passes. This measure is meant for the safety of the visitors,” SFC said in a statement issued yesterday.

It also mentioned that the suspension order would not affect other land-based activities such as trekking or bird-watching.

“However, visitors are strongly advised to check with park personnel for advice and information to facilitate their activities,” SFC reminded.

For further information and clarifications, visitors can contact Loagan Bunut National Park at 019-8610994; or the National Park Booking Office (Miri Office) at 085-434184 / 435384 (phone) or fax to 085-431975.
