Sample itinerary

Day 1 - Kota Kinabalu / Tamparuli Town / Nabalu Market / Kinabalu National Park / Kundasang Market / Kundasang

Get ready to embark on an exciting journey through Sabah's lush countryside. We will pick you up from the hotel lobby, and along the way, we will make a few stops for delicious local food, handcrafted souvenirs, and even some exotic fruits.

The first 30 minutes of the journey will take you through scenic landscapes and picturesque paddy fields, passing by charming local villages until we reach Tamparuli Town. Here, take a leisurely stroll on the iconic "Jambatan Tamparuli" suspension bridge and experience the delightful atmosphere of rural Sabah.

After that, we will travel along the winding mountain roads of the Crocker Range for another hour before reaching Nabalu Handicraft Market. Located on a hillside, this rustic spot is a gathering place for the locals, who sell a variety of homegrown produce, fruits, vegetables, and unique handicraft souvenirs. Make sure to make a quick visit to the nearby viewing platform to see an astonishing view of Mount Kinabalu.

Next, we'll head to the incredible Kinabalu National Park, Malaysia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site and part of the Kinabalu UNESCO Global Geopark. Located at an elevation of 1,500 meters above sea level, this 754 sq. km park is home to the majestic Mount Kinabalu, one of the tallest mountains in Southeast Asia. You will be awe-struck by its cloud-covered peaks and the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding valleys.

You will find a wide variety of plant life within Kinabalu Park, boasting approximately 4,500 species, including 1,500 species of orchids, 77 of which can only be found here. The park also hosts 289 bird species and an astonishing 290 types of butterflies. During a guided walk in the Botanical Garden, you can explore the park's remarkable biodiversity, from fascinating carnivorous pitcher plants to rare orchid species. It's a true treasure trove for nature lovers!

Afterwards, we will enjoy a delicious lunch at a restaurant in Kinabalu Park before making our way to Kundasang Market. Here, the vibrant market offers various products, ranging from fresh vegetables to beautiful flowers.

Finally, we will head to your accommodation for check-in. As you reach this elevated level, notice the change in the air temperature. Feel free to explore the resort at your leisure, taking in the serene surroundings and the cool atmosphere.

In the evening, enjoy a delightful dinner and settle in for an overnight stay at the mountain resort.

Day 2 - Desa Cow Farm / Alpaca Club / Kundasang Farm Ville / Kota Kinabalu

On your second day, you will be greeted by a misty morning that reveals stunning views of sun-kissed Mount Kinabalu as you hear birds chirping in the background and low-lying clouds covering the valleys.

The first activity on the day's itinerary is a visit to Desa Cow Farm. As you travel, the roads become narrower, and the scenery in your rearview mirror transforms into lush green landscapes. This signals your arrival at the Desa Cattle Farm, a 199-hectare expanse of unspoiled farmland on Mount Kinabalu's foothills.

Here, cattle roam freely on the verdant valley pastures, producing almost one million litres of fresh mountain milk yearly. The farm's stunning panoramic views serve as a breathtaking backdrop for travellers from near and far. You can observe the cattle up close, bottle-feed the calves, and indulge in fresh milk or yoghurt produced directly on the farm.

Your next stop will be Alpaca Club, Sabah's first and only alpaca farm! As you step into the charming facility, you will be greeted by the friendly and fluffy alpacas. These lovable creatures are famous for their soft fleece, irresistible charm, and friendly demeanour. Feed these adorable furry friends by hand and take photos up close for an unforgettable memory.

Continue your journey to the Kundasang Farm Ville. This new attraction is close to the dairy farm, featuring an aquaponic farm, a selfie garden with beautiful decorations, an ice cream bus, and a cafe.

Proceed with lunch at a local restaurant. Thereafter, depart back to your hotel in Kota Kinabalu City.
