This national park, located in the extreme south-western
tip of Java on the Sunda shelf, includes the Ujung Kulon peninsula and
several offshore islands and encompasses the natural reserve of
Krakatoa. In addition to its natural beauty and geological interest –
particularly for the study of inland volcanoes – it contains the largest
remaining area of lowland rainforests in the Java plain. Several
species of endangered plants and animals can be found there, the Javan
rhinoceros being the most seriously under threat.
