One of the highest peaks in Southeast Asia, Mount Kinabalu is definitely a dream peak for every hiker given its rich biodiversity. Join us as we take you on an enriching day-trip to two spots -the Kinabalu National Park and Poring hot springs on this imposing mountain in Sabah.

The trip is an excellent way to discover the ecosystem of Sabah. We will begin by driving you to Kundasang. It will be a scenic ride where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of soaring hills and the beautiful countryside. On the way, we will cross Nabalu town. This is an ideal place to explore local handicraft and some tasty cuisine.

Soon, you will have your first clear views of the majestic peak of Kinabalu, a sight truly spectacular! Now, comes the time to explore Kinabalu Natural Park.

Located 1,585 m above sea level, the Park is a paradise for nature enthusiasts because of the vast diversity of its plant and animal life. Not only will you be able to spot local varieties here, but might as well see some plant species of Himalayan and Australian origin. No wonder it is a World Heritage Site!

Continuing further, we will head towards Poring hot springs to take a relaxing dip in hot sulfur water. Located 39km from the Park, these springs were created by the Japanese during the Second World War. And, of course, the water is known to have healing properties!

Canopy walk and a visit to the Botanical garden are a few of the other activities you would indulge in on this tour. You sure will feel super enriched and relaxed by the end of the day. We will finally return to Kota Kinabalu by the evening to end this remarkable trip.

And, the best part, the kids are known to enjoy this one, even more, so make sure you bring your complete family along!
