This park is a tropical rain forest ecosystem remaining lowland and widest in West Java. This area is the last remaining habitat of the endangered species are the Javan rhino (Rhinoceros sundaicus). The natural beauty such as the white sand beaches and meadows that adorn the park, certainly be interesting to enjoy.

Took a weekend trip to Krakatau and Ujung Kulon national park, leaving Jakarta on Friday after work and returning on Sunday night. Krakatau is a bucket list sight - the mother volcano (they call it "Ibu") is a majestic stump, all that remains of the 1883 eruption. The child of Krakatau ("Anak") rose from the sea in 1927-ish and grows about 6m a year. The tour takes you to Anak, where the hike is only 20-30 mins halfway up - you're not allowed to go to the crater for safety reasons. After that, we went snorkeling, then spent the night at the Uung Kulon national park lodge. It's more comfortable than camping but it's not a hotel - facilities are basic. The place is teeming with charismatic megafauna - as soon as you step on to the island, you see deer and wild boar trotting around, monitor lizards, even a wild buffalo. Worth a weekend trip.
