Overview of Tour

We’ve combined the scenic nature trails of UNESCO World Heritage Site Kinabalu Park with a treetop adventure taking you 40 meters above the spectacular wilderness of Borneo’s ancient rainforest. This Full-Day itinerary takes you on a journey of discovery into Sabah’s most-celebrated natural wonders while still leaving you with enough time to take it easy with a good soak in Poring’s best-known tonic for mind and body, its mineral-rich hot-springs.

About The Location

About Kinabalu National Park : 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.

About Poring Hot Springs : This little Nature Reserve is the perfect place for a more relaxed jungle experience with its canopy walkways and warm therapeutic sulphur hot springs. Within the nature reserve, see the treetops like the orangutans do! Poring’s canopy walkway invites you to witness the grandeur and glory of a 100 million year old rainforest from a 175m length walkway suspended 40m above unspoiled flora. Besides the various nature trails snaking through both the forest floor and amidst treetops, the park also feature a beautifully landscaped garden hosting Poring’s best known tonic for mind and body— mineral-rich hot-springs bubbling from deep in the earth.
