Kinabalu National Park
Home to Mount
Kinabalu, Malaysia's first World Heritage Site, Kinabalu National Park is a
paradise of flora and fauna which thrive in the cooler mountain air.
During certain seasons
of the year, the famous Rafflesia, largest flower in the world, can be sighted
in the park. The park is also a haven for pitcher plants, wild orchids and a
multitude of moths, butterflies and bugs which make for a fascinating study.
Poring Hot Springs
Poring Hot Springs is
a natural outlet for clear spring water heated deep inside the earth. Hot
springs are believed to provide cures, and relieve pains and aches.
In addition to the hot
spring pools, a trek along any of the trails at Poring will bring one alongside
a fascinating display of flora, and sometimes, fauna. Not to be missed is the
exciting Poring Canopy Walk.
White Water Rafting at Kiulu River
Kiulu River, located
just 45 minutes from the resort, is a popular white-water rafting destination.
A mostly uphill drive brings guests to the starting points.
Kiulu River is the
tamer of the two rivers nearby. The Padas River, which is a further 1 hour from
the resort in the opposite direction, provides an extra challenge for more
seasoned and adventurous rafters.
