    Tour Description:

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

    Sabah is a land with a thriving ecosystem that is both unique and fascinating. Start off your tour with a scenic two hours’ drive to Kinabalu Park where you will pass by quaint little villages and acres of paddy fields along the mountainous roads that wind along the Crocker range. Stop by the Nabalu Market, a commercial location where natives gather to peddle local wares, fresh produce and handicraft souvenirs.

    Next, proceed to the Poring Hot Springs which would take approximately 1.5 hours. Sink your teeth into a lovely lunch served at the Poring Hot Spring Restaurant before proceeding to the Canopy Walkway. Strap on a good pair of hiking boots and set off on a 20-30 minute hike in order to reach the walkway attached to the Menggaris trees. Not for the faint of heart, the walkway stretches out for 157 metres and is suspended 41 metres above the ground, approximately the same height as a 12-storey building.

    The Butterfly Farm is the next attraction on your list. Admire the colourful, winged creatures as they flash their beauty for all to see. After a tiring morning, you may opt to take a dip in the open-air Japanese-style bathtub; the natural hot sulphuric minerals are believed to have therapeutic effects designed to alleviate the sores and soothe your aching muscles. After a relaxing soak, you will then be transferred to Kinabalu Park where you will have dinner and check into a mountain resort to stay the night.

    Day 2 - Kinabalu Park

    Rise early the next morning if you intend to catch the sunrise where you will be able to appreciate the imposing beauty of Mount Kinabalu before your very eyes as it is slowly engulfed by clouds. After breakfast, breathe in the refreshing and cooling air as you partake in an educational walk along the nature trails in the Botanical Garden. You will also be able to explore the various trails around Kinabalu Park where you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.

    Explore and learn more about the park, which boasts an estimate of 4,500 species of plants which include 1,500 species of orchids, 77 of which are endemic to Kinabalu. The park also supports 289 species of birds and 290 different types of butterflies. Other must-see attractions include the Mountain Garden as well as the Exhibition Hall. Food is the least of your worries as you will be able to enjoy all meals at the restaurant in Kinabalu Park.

    Day 3 - Kinabalu Park / Kota Kinabalu

    On the final day of your tour, bring out your adventurous side and tackle the network of jungle trails for a morning filled with excitement. As one of Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Kinabalu Park is one of the world’s most important biological sites. Feast on a hearty lunch before stopping briefly at the Park HQ where you will receive the World Heritage Site Certificate before departing back to your hotel in Kota Kinabalu City.
