This Weekends Activities in Miri
Getting properly kitted up for the boatride around Loagan Bunut back in 2009 AWC.
Saturday-Sunday, 20-21st February AWC Loagan Bunut National Park
Meet : Gloria Hotel, Miri
Time : 0615 hrs
Duration : 2D/1N
We are off to Loagan Bunut for AWC this weekend, we are leaving with 2x4WD vehicles from Gloria Hotel. We'll start very early from Miri with a short break in Beluru to absorb some local color and rejuvenate some body parts most vulnerable to bumpy road conditions. We'll quickly pass through Lapok to register and check in at Loagan Bunut National Park, eta 0900hrs.
Accomodation will be in simple dormitory rooms at $15/person at the Park. Food will at the canteen or whatever we can scrape together for a barbecue or simple cookout, shared costs.
There'll be one boatride to birdwatch along the lakeshores up to Sg Teru on the evening of the 1st day and another very early morning on the 2nd day, again shared costs. There'll be an optional crocodile watching cruise at midnite to Sg Teru for the bravehearted few. We'll be birdwatching around the parkgrounds and nearby trails on both days outside of the planned boatride times.
4WD vehicle is recommended for travel to LBNP due to several spots of rough road conditions between Beluru and Lapok. We'll start our journey back to Miri just after lunchtime Sunday afternoon.
Interested? We have only one seat left on the 4wD, unless you are driving your own car. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
