The Trekking Borneo & Beyond tour starts and ends in Kuala Lumpur. The Trekking Borneo & Beyond is a trekking tour that takes 15 days taking you through Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and other destinations in Malaysia.

S. E. Asia’s tallest mountain, Mt. Kinabalu, towers over the Sulu Sea and Borneo’s sweeping jungles. In the east of the world’s third largest island Orang-utans populate the trees of Sepilok, whilst on the Malayan Peninsula rivers gush through Taman Negara, cloud forests share the highlands with tea plantations and strawberry farms and the country’s modern capital is a melting pot of cultures. We peek behind the green curtain of Malaysia’s primeval forests as we don our hiking boots and go trekking around Borneo and beyond.

The holiday of a lifetime
5 - Excellent
“If you're looking forward a holiday with a nice mixture of everything then I can't recommend this trip highly enough. We enjoyed the best part of two days and nights in the bustling and lively capital Kuala Lumpur where we sampled lots and I mean LOTS of different food and drink, Opium restaurant was delicious and the Sky Bar contained stunning views of the city at night. Elsewhere on the peninsula we explored the Cameron Highlands with its nearby tea plantations, even calling in for Tea and Scones, the weather was much cooler in the Highlands and nice and refreshing after the heat of Kuala Lumpur. We also spent 3 nights in Taman Negara in the jungle, the treks here were fun, especially the swinging canopy walkway one. Our second week was spent on the Island of Borneo, which contained the two highlights of the holiday for me. The Orangutan sanctuary at Sepilok was a fantastic experience, so much so I went twice in one day, it was just so fantastic to see these apes in their natural habitats. Towards the end of the trip the trek up Mt Kinabulu is a demanding one but a thoroughly rewarding one, we were lucky enough to see a glorious sunset at Laban Rata hut the night before and got the all important sunrise at the summit of Mt Kinabulu, ending the holiday at a beach resort for two days is the perfect tonic, beach, pool, sunshine and RELAX. The perfect holiday.”

“I have no idea who to summarise something that had so many unique experiences and so much variety. It's like being asked to summarise a kaleidoscope. Firstly, if you enjoy trekking then yes. Book it. The street food in KL was great, Chuck - the guide for the day - was enthusiastic to share knowledge of the area and as much food as we could eat. Jeremy our guide for the peninsula was also a big foodie and food is definitely an abiding memory. So to is Jason our guide in the Cameron Highlands, a lovely and interesting guy and the Highlands are picturesque rolling hills and the sports bar there is were team bonding started. The rainforest was tiring hiking and challenging but in a way that left you feeling all the richer for the experience and the fact you step out of your lodge and there's monkeys in your face... was rather fun. In Borneo the urang utan and sun bears sanctuary was incredible. As was the probiscus monkey visit. This is one of Those experiences. One that you'll take away with you. The trek to the mangrove is a pleasant easy stroll before the big one. Kinabalu. Wow, stairs. Relentless, but take a steady pace and you'll survive. And it is worth it. But wow. Stairs. The ending is a wonderful beech hotel and totally worth it. It's a holiday that was epic.”

“Although aged 80 I was probably at least 15 years older than anyone else, however this in no way spoiled my experience of this holiday. The group was fantastic, the best I have experienced over the last 20 years of trekking. It was certainly added to by the local 'guides' who were excellent and very friendly to all the group. I and 2 others were not able to get to the summit of Mount Kinabalu as we ran out of time although we had passed the last checkpoint. We should have left the Laban Resthouse earlier. We did not sleep anyway! The whole holiday experience was far better than I expected although I did need to buy a new camera in Kuala Lumpur (a waterproof one). The humidity and going through the 'rapids' on the river was too much for my old camera!”
Malaysia Adventure!

“I wasn't sure where I wanted to go away this year, but the itinerary of this trip just jumped out at me and certainly didn't disappoint! You get to experience two distinct parts of Malaysia - the Malayan Peninsula and Borneo - and this allows you to see its diversity firsthand. KL is a city that never sleeps and is a treasure trove of culinary delights; the Cameron Highlands, with its rolling hills and tea plantations is a real highlight, particularly the trek with Jason. Our next stop in the Taman Negara National Park, where we were surrounded by ancient rainforest, allowed us to live with monkeys all around us and to experience some real jungle trekking and river rapids too! Borneo, is simply teeming with wildlife. You will not get tired of watching the orang-utans eating, playing, squabbling and doing ridiculous acrobatics. This goes for the sunbears and striking proboscis monkeys too. The Mount Kinabalu trek to follow is tough but totally worth it, especially when you get up to the clouds...and setting off for the summit to catch the sunrise is a surreal and exciting experience. The hotel right by the South China Sea is the perfect R&R finish to a perfect holiday!”
Those making their own way to Kuala Lumpur can arrive at the hotel at any time today. The scheduled group flights are due to arrive early evening.*Capitol Hotel or similar*
Malaysia prides itself in its diversity and this is reflected in its capital, Kuala Lumpur (KL) with its mix of Malay, Indian and Chinese traditions and people. One of the best ways of exploring this diversity is through a food tour of city. We discover different neighbourhoods with their distinct sights, sounds, smells and, of course, delicacies.

We start our journey at Masjid Jamek and learn about how city of Kuala Lumpur started. What better way to enjoy the day by sampling typical food that Malaysians enjoy at a local eatery. Wandering through the small streets of KL, uncover the cultures of the Chinese and Indian communities who came to KL to make their fame & fortune, but stayed on instead to add on another cultural dimension to the Malaysian cultural landscape. We also visit KL’s oldest Chinese and Indian temple to understand more about these communities.

Our visit to Chinatown is rewarded by tasty noodles amongst the locals. After this, take a short ride on KL’s modern local transport system towards Brickfields. This is Little India for KL, and our senses will be assaulted by loud and colourful architecture, music and food as we walk through the Indian neighbourhood. We sample delicious Indian dishes served on banana leaf and seek out street vendors for snacks to end our food journey.

This afternoon we use public transport and visit the Batu Caves. These limestone caves are a holy Hindu site and are guarded by a giant statue of the Hindu god Lord Murugan. This is the 2nd tallest statue of a Hindu deity in the world. Behind the statue are the 272 steps that lead to the caves, and large numbers of monkeys.

Those wanting to have a drink with some amazing views may wish to go to the Heli Lounge Bar later this evening for 360' views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline light up at night.

*Capitol Hotel or similar*
An early start to the day as we aim to check out of the hotel around 6:00am to drive about 1 hour to the start of the trail. A popular place with locals to exercise, we can expect to come across some of them on the trail. The trail starts with a gentle rise which gets steeper in the middle portion and, eventually, gets steeper still, with ropes to assist you to balance your weight, as we reach the first summit. From here we can enjoy a boxed breakfast as we watch the sun rise over the city sprawling beneath us. Depending on how we’re doing with time we will then continue on towards the second peak which is a little steeper but has sweeping views.Returning to the start of the trail the same way we went up, we rejoin our minibus and transfer 5-6 hours to the Cameron Highlands.The Cameron Highlands is a British-era hill station and the nights are noticeably cooler here. The area is known for its strawberry farms and tea plantations. For those who are interested, there may be time to visit one of the local tea plantations or simply enjoy tea and scones. *Century Pines or similar*
Meeting our local guide at the hotel at 08:30 we embark on a jungle trek through the highlands up to Gunung Berembun. The well maintained trail gradually takes us up the side of a river valley on an undulating path with a fairly steep final ascent to reach the summit (1,840m). The Berembun range is protected primary forest and the air is generally cooler, though it can get very humid. There’s a lot of birdlife and, thanks to the altitude, lots of mosses and lichen.Reaching the peak we can enjoy views of the tea plantations below. We head back along a different route which can be steep in places and you may need to help your balance by grabbing on to tree roots. The trek ends close to the hotel. *Century Pines or similar*
Leaving the highlands we journey to one of the oldest remaining rainforests in the world in Taman Negara National Park (about 5 hours plus stops). These primaeval forests, dating back 130 million years and covering 4,343 sqkm are home to rare animals including Malayan tigers, Indian elephants and crab-eating macaques (though these animals are rarely seen). We should arrive mid-afternoon and settle into our jungle lodge. There should be time to relax or explore the grounds and watch the many monkeys who hang around the lodge. This evening there is the option to go out on an optional night walk in search of interesting insects and nocturnal animals.*Mutiara Resort or similar*
We spend today exploring the park from the canopy, ground and water. We start off by walking along boardwalks before taking to the treetops on a 300m long canopy walk rising up to 40m above the forest floor. The canopy walk is along a series of fortified rope bridges, these are perfectly safe but if they make you nervous it is possible to wait for the rest of the group at the bottom of the canopy walk. This gives us the chance to discover the forest from a different angle before returning to the ground.Next we hike up Teresek Hill. Only 350m high but with panoramic views over the jungle, this is an easy walk mostly along boardwalks.Later this afternoon we take to the park’s rivers and ‘shoot’ rapids. Boarding motorised canoes we have a trip along the river including through up to 7 sets of rapids. Whilst not quite like white-water rafting, it is still good fun to go down the rapids, Be ready to get wet! *Mutiara Resort or similar*
Today we explore more of Taman Negara’s primary forest as we head deeper into the jungle on 3-4 hour trek to Tabing. The trek itself is mostly flat and follows the meandering river. As we head further from the park entrance we get a better feel for this primeval forest, one of the oldest in the world.

As we reach the end of the trail we are met by our boats which take us to Lata Berkoh (Cascade Waterfall) some 20 minutes away.  Here we have some time to enjoy our packed lunch.

We eventually get back on the boats and head back to our lodge, 45 minutes away. We will be arriving back at the lodge mid-afternoon and the rest of the afternoon is free to either relax or go on some hikes independently along the boardwalks near the lodge.

*Mutiara Resort or similar*
Leaving the rainforest behind we return to the urban jungle, KL. The drive from Taman Negara to KL should take about 4 hours.

Depending on what time we arrive back in Kuala Lumpur there may be a bit of free time for some lunch before we head to the airport to catch our flight to Borneo.

Malaysia is a country of two-halves, the Malaysian Peninsula on the one hand and Borneo on the other. This afternoon we leave the Peninsula and our first leader behind and head for the island of Borneo where our next leader will be waiting for us. The flight to Sandakan takes about 3 hours (and there is a 15kg weight limit for checked-in luggage), arriving in the evening, then transferring to our lodge in Sepilok.

*Sepilok Jungle Resort or similar*
This morning we visit Sepilok Orang-utan Sanctuary. Set up in 1964, the 43 sqkm reserve of primary forest is the largest Orang-utan sanctuary in the world and helps rehabilitate orphaned or captured Orang-utans back into the wild. We visit the informative park headquarters and go looking for Orang-utans during feeding time. As the ticket is valid all day you'll be able to return for the afternoon feeding if you wish. We may also watch young Orang-utans in the nursery section. There is also the opportunity to visit the nearby Sunbear Conservation Centre. Other options include visiting the rainforest discover centre and the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.*Sepilok Jungle Resort or similar*
Today we have an early start and head out on the Sepilok Laut Trail. This walk, of around 9.2kms, starts from the rainforest discovery centre where we have a chance to do a canopy walk. From here the trail makes its way through primary forest giving us the opportunity to experience flora and fauna of eastern Borneo's lowlands. The reserve we walk through is home to 350 species of trees, 90 species of mammal and 200 species of birds. The trek itself includes two fairly steep hills along with several smaller hills and can get particularly muddy during the rainy season. We also recommend wearing leech socks (which can be purchased locally) or tuck your trousers into football socks.The trek ends at the Sepilok Laut reception center where boardwalks allow us to explore a mangrove area filled with fiddler crabs, macaques and monitor lizards. We later take a boat for around 20 minutes to Sandakan Jetty before catching a 30 minutes transfer back to Sepilok.*Sepilok Jungle Resort or similar*
Today we head towards the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, Mt. Kinabalu. The journey will take 5-6 hours. Depending on time we should have the opportunity to visit the Kundasang War Memorial (optional) which commemorates Prisoners of War who died during the infamous death marches during World War II. The memorial is made up of four gardens, the Australian, English, Malaysian and the Contemplation Garden that represent the different nationalities. There are also a number of self-guided trails through the gardens at the base of the mountain.This evening we will have a briefing about the 2-day Mt. Kinabalu trek and we will need to pack our bags for the trek. Our main packs will be left behind. Porters are available to carry bags up to the hut we will be staying at tomorrow night, please ask your leaders about this. It is recommended that each trekker brings a rain jacket, warm hat, waterproof gloves, fleece, personal first aid kit, head-torch, sun cream, sunglasses, a change of clothes, toiletries, snacks, water and earplugs. Ideally you should have a 30-35L pack.Tonight we stay in dorms with shared bathrooms and depending on the gender make-up of the group couples may have to be split into separate dorms.*Kinabalu Park HQ*
Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in South East Asia at 4095m. It is an impressive mountain with its lower slopes covered in thick vegetation rising up the huge granite walls.Due to its great height, Mount Kinabalu has a number of different climatic zones. It has an enormous variety of plants and animals and is a naturalist's paradise. There are half of the world's flowering plants on this mountain alone. There are rhododendrons, innumerable mosses, fungi and ferns, over 1,200 species of orchid and the largest flowering plant in the world, the Rafflesia. Particularly interesting are the carnivorous and insectivorous pitcher plants. There are many animals including badgers, monkeys, squirrels, flying lemurs, and deer. However the chances of seeing many of these on the mountain climb are rare as the trail is well trodden and frequently visited. We are more likely to encounter the many birds, snakes, and insects of the region.The ascent of Mount Kinabalu is not technically difficult but most people find it challenging so you need to be fit and prepared for a tough two days. The path is wide and clear so you can climb at your own walking pace. Obviously the altitude makes it tougher the higher you climb but it really only becomes harder on the summit day. The trek climbs up through a multitude of vegetation zones and cloud forest to reach Laban Rata Resthouse at 3,300m. The temperature is noticeably colder due to the altitude and really feels chilly, especially when it clouds over. There is a very eerie feel to the place with the huge summit cliffs looming up behind the mountain huts.We spend the night in dorms in the hut and make the summit climb very early the next morning. Note that, once again, couples may be split depending on the gender makeup of the group. *Laban Rata Hut*
We awaken around 2am to slowly make our way to the summit. The challenging climb from Laban Rata takes up to 5 hours, depending on fitness and the impact of altitude. Upon leaving Laban Rata it is approx. 350 meters through the treeline to some viewing decks before a section of wooden steps with handrails all the way to the summit. The path levels out as we pass through a boulder field and join Sayat Sayat, the last check point before the summit, where there are toilets. From Sayat Sayat a final rope marks the route to the summit  a distance of about 1.8km. Waterproof gloves are recommended to protect your hands from rope burn (as well as to keep them warm). A torch, waterproofs and warm layers are also essential. As the dawn breaks we will be close to the summit, Low's Peak. The momentous summit feeling is easily matched by the tremendous view stretching across this part of Borneo as the early morning unfolds. On clear days you can see as far as the southern islands of the Philippines. With a long way to descend and aching legs, we return to the base at Laban Rata to collect any belongings and have breakfast. We continue down the mountain back to the start where there is normally a simple afternoon tea (with fried rice and bread) for trekkers.

Once we have returned to the bottom we will transfer to our beach hotel by bus, approximately 3 - 4 hours' drive. Arrival time will obviously be determined by what time we leave Kinabalu Park so this will be sometime in the afternoon or evening. 

*Beringgis Resort or similar*
This day is free to explore Kota Kinabalu, relax by the pool or have a massage to soothe aching muscles at a nearby spa. Alternatively you can take a short boat journey to one of the nearby islands to take advantage of the excellent snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities or there is also the option to hire a kayak.*Beringgis Resort or similar*
The trip ends today after breakfast, those on the group flights transfer will be taken to the airport for their flight home via KL.

We guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit or full payment has been made, we commit to replacing these services with another equally qualified agency so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
