Tour Description:

Up for a challenging morning trekking? Then you have come to the right spot! This demanding trekking route that you will be taking is a test of your physical fitness. This is why there is a requirement for you to be fit and ready for this trip. While the journey may be arduous, the reward is well worth the effort. Looking at fertile and vast fields, trekking through steep mountainsides and enjoying the panoramic view atop the hilltop are among the many other thrills you will get to enjoy during your journey. Immerse yourself into the Dusun culture as well as you make your way through the villages and learn more about the residents’ way of life.

You will be picked up at approximately 6:30 A.M. from Kota Kinabalu. Once you are on board, the scenic drive to Kiau Village in the foothills of Mount Kinabalu thus begins. Do pray for good weather as it will be so much better trekking amidst favourable weather than it is trekking through mud and wet soil. Once you arrive in Kiau Village, you will get to meet your local guide and start your two-hour long hike to the summit of Nuluh Lingion. If you prefer another hiking trail, you may request so provided that you have given the notice at least 3 days before. Along the way, you will pass through verdant meadows filled with the freshest fruits. Stop and taste some of the pineapples, jackfruits, wild ginger and bananas. Afterwards, you will continue your hike through the primary forest all the way to the lookout point.

There, sit down and enjoy your lunch for a well-deserved break. Keep your eyes peeled and take a look around the scenic surroundings of Mount Kinabalu and its waterfalls. With lunch over, you will get to choose one of four different routes for the descent. While all four involve the strenuous effort of a steep descent and river traversing, they are also accompanied by the beautiful view of the surrounding forest. Depending on the route of your choice, you might still make it back in time to experience some Dusun food at your local homestay before having to board the transport back to Kota Kinabalu so do choose wisely for some of that extra treat. You should arrive at Kota Kinabalu by 5:00 or 6:00 P.M. but it is again subject to weather and traffic conditions.
