Herping Java and Borneo

Post by LizardOllie » September 30th, 2016, 9:12 am

Hi,

I am travelling to Borneo for a university field trip in January but I am extending my stay longer for some herping. I'm just looking for advice on good places to see/herp, guides, advice, or anything else that might be useful for areas around West Java and NE Borneo.

Thanks!

If you're able to I highly recommend Mt. Kinabalu in Sabah and Danum Valley in Sabah as well. I don't have a whole lot of time to get into details right now, but if you'd like more info feel free to PM me.

I don't know of any spots to offer since I haven't been to indonesia in over 25 years, but I would point out that accessing National Parks in Indonesia used to require government permits. They weren't hard to get, but you couldn't just show up at the park gate and expect to be let in.
