The Loagan Bunut National Park, covering an area of 10,736 hectares (ha), is located between the Tinjar and Teru Rivers in the upper reaches of the Baram River basin in northern Sarawak about 120 km southeast of Miri City (Map1). The Park was gazetted in 1990 primarily to protect the lake known as Loagan Bunut. At about 650ha in size when flooded, this biggest natural freshwater lake in Sarawak can also be completely dry during prolonged drought.
