Day-Trip 10 hours - (Private Tour)
Kinabalu National Park is located some 2 hours from Kota Kinabalu. The journey takes on meandering mountain road with spectacular views of the Crocker Range.
This is probably the most spectacular national park in Malaysia. The star attraction, without a doubt, goes to the famed granite-clad Mount Kinabalu which officially stands at 4, 092 metres above sea level (though previously thought to have an elevation of 4, 101 metres).
The park headquarters boast quite a number of short hiking trails to enjoy the variety of plant species of the park. The biodiversity of this park is so impressive that Kinabalu National Park was accorded the UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
Next stop is Poring, 40km east of Mount Kinabalu, where visitors go for the Poring Hot Spring and Nature Reserve which houses both open-air and private cabin baths whose water contains sulphur that is known for its skin-curative properties. Canopy walk 40m high, nature trails, waterfall and gardens are to be explored.
The 88km journey starts early at 7am, (2 hours) ride through Crocker Mountain Range will lead us to Kundasang Town for a stop-over at the vegetable and fruits stalls.
