About The Location

Kinabalu National Park is Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, floristically fantastic with an estimated 5,000-6,000 vascular plant species and identified as a globally important Centre of Plant Endemism. Set at 1,500m above sea level, this 754sq kilometer park features one the Tallest Mountains in all of South East Asia as its center piece, Mount Kinabalu-- rising at 4.095.2m with cloud-hugging peaks that catches breaths, enchants eyes and shading valleys below…. Certainly a sight to behold from Kinabalu National Park. Also within the park, restaurants amidst lush montane forests, a botanic garden boasting plant species endemic to Mount Kinabalu as well as nature trails varying in length, from 20 minutes to 2-3 hours.

Poring Ranau —This little park is the perfect place for a more relaxed jungle experience with its canopy walkways and warm therapeutic sulphur hot springs. Situated about 40 KM from Kinabalu National Park HQ, Poring Hot Spring was actually originally built by the Japanese during WWII. Now it is a top destination sought after by tourists and locals alike.
