Gunung Palung National Park lies on the island of Borneo, in the Indonesian province of West Kalimantan, north of Ketapang and east of Sukadana. 

Gunung Palung was not immediately designated as a national park. The park was first created in 1937 as a forest nature reserve covering 300 km2 (120 sq mi). In 1981, the size was increased to 900 km2 (350 sq mi) and its status raised to a wildlife reserve, and on 24 March 1990 the area became a national park.
