    Tour Description:

    Day 1Kota Kinabalu / Nabalu Market / Poring / Kinabalu Park

    You will begin the tour at the break of dawn, just as the city begin to stir awake. Take a scenic 2 hours’ drive; passing by quaint villages, picturesque paddy fields and feel the cool wind on your face as you travel along mountainous roads winding along the Crocker Range. Make a pit stop at Nabalu Market; a convergence point for local natives to peddle their wares and local produce—fruits, fresh vegetables and handicraft souvenirs. On a good day, you will be able to get a good view of Mount Kinabalu; its peaks reaching to the heavens—a stunning view indeed.

    What better way to de-stress and dispel all weariness than to dip in a hot spring. Approximately 1.5 hours’ drive away, you will arrive at the Poring Hot Springs where you will be served lunch at the restaurant. After that, challenge yourself with a visit to the Canopy Walkway which is accessible after a 20-minute hike. Suspended 41 metres high and 157 metres in length, there are 2 vertigo-inducing canopy bridges for you to get your heart palpitating wildly.

    Located close by is our next attraction, the Butterfly Farm. Featuring a garden, hatchery and nursery, it was constructed for the purpose of preserving nature, researching and educating the public. Take a dip and soak in the hot sulphuric springs (Japanese style bathtubs) said to have restorative and therapeutic effects to dispel the aches and sores deep within your muscles. After a contented soak, it is time to check into a mountain resort at Kinabalu Park where you can take your sweet time to explore the grounds. Call it a day after dinner and rest as you will need it for the next leg of your adventure.

    Day 2 - Kinabalu Park / Kota Kinabalu

    Rise with the sun at 6 am to catch glorious rays break out over the horizon, casting an ethereal glow around Mount Kinabalu; mysteriously shrouded by clouds, reflecting its spiritual significance to the local populace. After a hearty breakfast, take a refreshing yet educational walk along the nature trails within the Botanical Garden. With over 1,500 species of orchids and thousands of butterflies and birds of varying species, this is a must-visit for all nature lovers.

    Next, spend some time visiting the Exhibition Hall and Mountain Garden (also known as Botanical Garden). Explore the numerous trails or join a 1-hour walking tour to learn more about the endemic plants and flowers along each trail. Try to search for the Sumandak—a camouflaged stick insect—that is quite a challenge to spot. The tour ends with a delectable meal at a nearby restaurant before transferring you back to the hotel.
