    Tour Description:

    The 2 hours’ drive to the Kinabalu Park is a charming but rocky journey, travelling along the mountainous roads of Crocker Range. There is a stopover at the Nabalu Market, which is the gathering point for the locals who come to sell their harvest, fruits and vegetables. There are handicraft souvenirs, too.  
     
    The first thing that you will notice about the Kinabalu Park is its cooling and fresh air. Walk along the Botanical Garden’s scenic nature trails and admire the gorgeous greenery. Besides being Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site, the park is also the Centre of Plant Diversity for South East Asia. This is no surprise as it is home to more than 5,000 species of vascular plants. There are 1,500 species of orchids to be found here including the Rothschild slipper orchid, which is among the world’s rarest orchids.
     
    The park’s fauna is equally impressive with 90 species of lowland mammals, 22 species of montane zone mammals, over 300 bird species and up to 290 types of butterflies. The breathtaking view of Mount Kinabalu is visible on clear days. After the nature walk, the group will leave for lunch at a local restaurant.
     
    The next stop is at the Poring Hot Spring, which is about an hour’s drive from Kinabalu Park. This natural hot spring is designed with Japanese baths. Treat yourself to a good soak in the sulphurous water. It is supposed to be very healing and soothing to the body. Take note that the Poring Hot Spring is a public area that often attracts big crowds during the weekends and on public holidays. For something more exciting, the Canopy Walkway awaits you at 41 metres above the forest floor. It takes a 20-minute hike to reach it. The last part of your journey will end with an approximately 3 hours’ return trip to your hotel in Kota Kinabalu.
