Low energy, low noise, and low impact by design, the site is powered by LPG and solar PV, with most higher energy inputs such as cooking and laundry done off-site at the community co-op facilities of KOPEL Bhd. TRECs zero waste and zero chemical policy means only homemade biodegradable soaps and cleaning products are used, and the minimal solid waste brought by visitors is taken back to the village for recycling, composting or disposal.
Camp platforms are designed for serious bird and wildlife photographers, who will not be disappointed by the volume and diversity of mammal, bird, amphibian, and reptile species in the surrounding floodplain forests. Plant lovers will also be amazed by the diversity of plants and forest types within a short walk from the camp. Visitors are required to follow strict guidelines to minimise their noise and disturbance to the forest wildlife.
Stay at the Tungog Rainforest Eco Camp for your next conservation retreat, research trip or educational project; or simply sit-back on a “camp platform” and absorb the smells, sights, and sounds of the Borneo Rainforest. Make the Eco Camp your forest refuge or your base for an authentic Borneo rainforest experience.
Hidden in a meander-belt forest on the fringe of the beautiful Tungog Lake, the Tungog Rainforest Eco Camp (or TREC for short) offers a unique insight into the mysterious life of a lowland Borneo Rainforest. There are ten live-in observation platforms called “camp-platforms”, with limited accommodation for only twenty eco-visitors at any one time. The site is located 2km downstream from the Batu Puteh Village jetty run by the village co-op KOPEL Bhd. This site is remote and off-grid.
