The Paku Rock Maze Garden in Bau is a primitive stone forest located nearby Paku Town.
The rock maze in this garden are said to be an extremely precious geological heritage site as it features natural rock formations.
According to responsibleborneo.com the rock maze was previously an undeveloped primitive stone forest overgrown with shrubs.
However, in 2021, efforts were made to clean up the area which now makes it look how it is.
What to expect
The maze garden has a mini “Five Fingers Mountain” standing in the centre with its height only half a person’s body.
It has five uplifted ridges with spreading moss like a miniature model of a plateau mountain.
The name “Five Fingers Mountain” comes from the similar shape of its five ridges.
If you intend to go, be sure to wear shoes and wear clothing for trekking.
While the Rock Maze Garden is not a trekking site, the trail and path is rather rocky and and can be slippery.
