Back to nature in Malaysian sanctuary

As the trend for exploration of expansive spaces continues post-lockdown, Asian Trails’ Malaysia team has developed an inspirational excursion that unveils the hidden beauty of Kinabalu National Park.

This is home to 4,095 metres-high Mount Kinabalu and diverse wildlife across a 754 sq-km protected sanctuary situated in Sabah state, on the northern end of the island of Borneo. Resident creatures include gibbons and clouded leopards. Guests are guided on lowland trails through rainforests boasting over 6,000 species of orchids, carnivorous pitcher plants and the rafflesia, the world’s largest flowering plant.

The diverse itinerary also includes a visit to the Botanical Garden to get an insight into the flora kingdom and Poring Hot Spring where it is possible to soak in curative hot sulphur water. Overnight is in idyllic Kundasang, a town at the foot of majestic Kinabalu.
