Summary of The Day: Explore one of the most gorgeous regions in Malaysia with a day trip from Kota Kinabalu! After picking you up from your hotel we'll head out to Tamparuli Town, where we'll visit Historical Wooden Shop houses of olden days and walk across the “Jambatan Tamparuli,” a suspension bridge which is the famous landmark in that small town to get a feel of kampong lifestyle.
From here we'll head to Kinabalu Park, traveling approximately 1 1/2 hours as we pass by villages and paddy fields along mountainous roads that wind along the Crocker range. Along the way, we'll make a brief stop at Nabalu, where the locals gather to sell local produce, fruits, home grown vegetables and handicraft souvenirs.
Then we'll arrive at the wondrous Kinabalu Park, where you will notice the change in air temperature. Enjoy the refreshing and cooling air as you proceed for a walk along the nature trails in the Botanical Garden. If the day is clear, you may even spot a majestic view of Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain between the New Guinea and Himalaya. Kinabalu Park boasts an estimate of 4,500 species of plants which include 1,500 species of orchids, 77 of which are endemic to Kinabalu. The park also supports 289 species of birds and 290 different types of butterflies.
After the walk, we'll depart for lunch at a local restaurant.
Following lunch, we'll head to the Poring Hot Spring. At approximately 47 kilometers from Kinabalu Park, Poring Hot Spring got its name from the tall bamboo plant that is abundant in that area. At this natural hot spring, there are Japanese baths where visitors can soak themselves and let the invigorating sulfurous water stimulate the body. It is believed to have curative powers.
Visitors can also try the Treetop Canopy Walk, where suspension bridges are suspended at the top of the tropical jungle. Experience the height of 41 metres above the ground and length of 157 metres. A 20 minutes hike is needed to reach the Canopy Walkway.
After a relaxing soak, bid Kinabalu park goodbye as you return back to your respective hotel.
