STONG STATE PARK

 

 

Situated at the Kuala Krai district in the south of Kelantan, Stong State Park is a unique park that is accessible via the Dabong town. Covering an area of more than 21 ,900ha, the park?s hill dipterocarp, oak-laurel, sub-montane and montane ericaceous forests shelter about 100 bird species. It is linked to the main range, Titiwangsa Range, and has several prominent mountain peaks. An outstanding feature found here is the seven-tiered Jelawang waterfall, one of the highest waterfalls in Malaysia. Due to the undulating hilly terrain, this park is well suited for adventurous bird watchers. Among the 14 montane bird species seen here are the Green-billed Malkoha, Little Cuckoo- Dove, Mountain Imperial Pigeon, Long-tailed Broadbill, White-throated Fantail, Rufous-browed Flycatcher, Ochraceous Bulbul, Everett?s White-eye, Mountain Tailorbird, Pygmy Wren Babbler, Mountain Fulvetta, Black-throated Sunbird and the Streaked Spiderhunter.

 

Other lowland forest birds found here include the Great Argus Pheasant, Red-naped Trogon, Banded Kingfisher, Oriental Honey-buzzard, Blyth?s Hawk Eagle, Green Broadbill, Asian Fairy Bluebird, Crested Jay, Asian Paradise Flycatcher, Chestnut-naped Forktail, Fluffy-backed Tit-Babbler, Red-throated and Yellow-crowned Barbets, as well as the Rhinoceros, Helmeted and White-crowned Horn bills. Bird watching is common along the main trail leading from the base of the mountain to the peak of Gunung Stong. There is a campsite midway along the trail to the mountain peak where you can stay overnight. The base of the Gunung Stong and the small river found there are also good areas to start looking for birds, before trekking to the higher forest areas. Another good birding area is the trail along the plateau area where many lowland birds can be seen.
