Ujung Kulon National Park is like a lost paradise, at the southwest end of Java island. Its 1200 km2 are under the protection of the UNESCO since 1992. This untouched tropical forest is home to lots of animal species (monkeys, varans, deers to mention only a few). It is also apparently the last refuge for the Java rhino, although no one as seen one in a few years.
Located northwest of Ujung Kulon National Park, Peucang is one of the country’s many islands that strive for marine ecotourism. “Peucang” is the local word for barking deer as hundreds of deer are found in its dense tropical forest along with other wild animals like monkeys, hornbills, monitor lizards and wild boars.
