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!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
