Starting in Kuala Lumpur and ending in Kota Kinabalu, the "Trekking Borneo & Beyond" tour is a guided climbing trip that takes 14 days. You will travel through Kinabalu Park, Kota Kinabalu, Taman Nagara and 4 other destinations in Malaysia. "Trekking Borneo & Beyond" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Mount Kinabalu towers over the Sulu Sea and sweeping jungles of Borneo. In the east of the third-largest island on the planet, orangutans populate the trees of Sepilok, while on the Malayan Peninsula rivers gush through Taman Negara, cloud forests share the highlands with tea plantations and strawberry farms, and the modern capital is a melting pot of cultures. We peek behind the green curtain of primeval forests as we don hiking boots to trek Borneo and beyond.

A brilliant experience
An amazing trip which I'll always remember. My personal highlights were seeing the orangutans and other wildlife in the rainforest. I highly recommend the 'optional' boat trip at the end - we saw proboscis monkeys, hornbills, and... Read more
