Climb above the clouds on Mt Kinabalu

If you want a real challenge during your trip to Borneo then a climb to the top of Mount Kinabalu is worth the effort. Its majestic peak soars out high above the jungle with the top of the mountain surrounded by a shroud of clouds. The pay off for the challenging climb is the spectacular view across the city of Kota Kinabalu and surrounding jungle.

Spot proboscis monkeys along the rocky coast of Bako

Trek through the steamy jungle of Bako National Park, spotting Proboscis monkeys along the way high up in the treetops. You’ll find yourself in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by unusual tropical plants and trees. After a winding walk through the dense jungle, you will reach a deserted tropical beach – the perfect place for a quick dip in the sea after a steamy jungle trek.
