Accommodation & Adventure & Diving Tour Package In Sabah

Kinabalu National Park

The main attraction of the park is of course Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South-East Asia at over 4100 metres. The granite massif dominates the surrounding landscape. The park is a paradise for naturalists, botanists bird watchers and those who admire nature. There are 11 km of marked and graded trails at the Park Headquarters, many of which cut across the mountain forest vegetation. The higher you climb, the less dense the forest becomes. The Silau Silau trail is the easiest and perhaps the most beautiful.

Guided tours to the summit of Mt Kinabalu take two days for the average tourist to the area. On a clear morning it is possible to see to the Philippines from the summit. Be warned - the second day begins at 03.00 hrs!!

Please visit Mount Kinabalu under Highlands and Kinabalu Park under National Parks.

Poring Hot Spring

Poring Hot Springs is one of the best places to visit after a climb of Mt Kinabalu, or after a trip into the Sabah jungles. The steaming sulphuric water is an excellent tonic for tired limbs. Between hot and cold baths, you can trek through the dipterocarp forests of Poring which are rich in fruit trees, kanas and rotan palms. The baths were originally built during the Japanese occupation and set in a lush green setting. It is called "Poring" because it is named after a species of bamboo abundant here.

Experience too, the canopy walkway (not for the faint hearted) where you are able to walk through the forest canopy of a suspended walkway. It is definitely worth the effort.

The vegetation in the area is lowland rainforest

Padas Gorge And The Beaufort Train

The train which runs between Beaufort and Tenom is the last remaining train in Sabah. The trip passes across the scenic Padas Gorge. The spectacular view of the swift flowing river flanked by high hills and mountains makes the journey an interesting one. The rail often disappears into the jungle growth, and the view from the window often has you wondering just where the track might be heading. The journey also passes tropical rainforest, rubber estates and villages along the Padas River. The Tenom Pangi Hydroelectric project is also a very impressive sight from the train. The Padas River is also the site of white-water rafting adventures which shoot through rapids up to Grade 4
