Overview

Kota Kinabalu, the capitol city of Sabah, is located on the west coast of Sabah and is the start and end point for most holidays in Sabah, Borneo. With a few days free in Kota Kinabalu it\\\'s great to get out and explore more of Sabah though Kota Kinabalu tours. Alongside exploring the tropical waters of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park located in front of Kota Kinabalu through a snorkelling trip or scuba diving course, there are many attractions within 1 - 2 hours of the city (by road) that can be visited via a day tour. Kinabalu Park is Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site. Also the Centre of Plant Diversity for South East Asia, the Park boasts more than 5,000 vascular plant species and the Park has no shortage of fauna as well, being home to some 90 lowland mammal species and many others. A list of plants found here are the infamous Nepenthes rajah; the world\\\'s largest pitcher plant, Nepenthes x sukaibiensis; a natural cross-hybrid between Nepenthes lowii and Nepenthes burbidgae and the enigmatic Paphiopedilum rothschildianum (Rothschild slipper orchid) one of the rarest orchids in the world. The main attraction at the Park is none other than the majestic Mount Kinabalu, one of the highest mountains in South East Asia standing at 4095.2 metres. Apart from traditional mountain climbing, visitors can also experience the Mountain Torq, the world’s highest and Asia’s first Via Ferrata or ‘iron road’ at 3,200m to 3,800m above sea level. To those who are more adventurous, there are other mountain activities such as Alpine Rock Climbing, Paragliding and also mountain expedition. Now there are now 2 picturesque trails to the summit, Ranau Trail and Kota Belud trail. The trails will take climbers from Panar Laban (previously known as Laban Rata) at 3,272m to Sayat Sayat (3,668m). And then continue on to the summit trail to Low\\\'s Peak at 4,095.2m. (Note: Both Kota Belud trail and Ranau are new routes to Sayat Sayat, the route from Sayat Sayat to summit is the same route used previously). The new trails may be more challenging than the previous trail, but climbers will be rewarded with breathtaking views along the way. Surrounding the Kinabalu Park is a multitude of natural attractions and enjoyable activities such as mountain biking, golf, birding, farm tours, canopy walk and of course photography! A variety of accommodation is available within the Park and in its surrounding areas, ranging from basic hostels to luxury chalets. A visit to Kinabalu Park will never be perfect without swinging by Poring Hot Springs. Situated 40 kilometers (25 miles) slightly northeast from the Parks HQ, Poring is located in the lowlands—a contrast to the Parks HQ. De-stress and soak away the sores and aches of your muscles in the spring’s hot sulphuric minerals, deemed to have healing properties and very popular among the locals. Other than the natural hot spring main attraction at Poring Hot Springs, there are also other interesting areas in the park to be visited such as the butterfly farm, the Poring Orchid Conservation Centre, the tropical garden, the Poring canopy walkway, and the Rafflesia flower site. Some of the highlights in our Kota Kinabalu tours section include going for a river cruise along the Klias River in search of the strange looking Proboscis Monkey as they sit in the trees eating fruit next to the river.
