Travel through the spectacular Crocker Range to Kinabalu National Park, a place full of natural wonders and one of the richest wildlife reserves on the planet.
Trek along well-kept trails past towering hardwood trees festooned with orchids and ferns. Look out for the brightly colored birds flitting through the canopy and see some of the Kinabalu’s specialties like Nepenthes raja, a huge carnivorous plant able to hold around 3.5 liters of water in its urn-shaped pitcher.
Visit the beautifully kept botanical gardens and enjoy the views of Mount Kinabalu, South East Asia’s highest mountain.
You can take this tour as part of a larger group or opt for a private tour for a more personal experience.

Your hotel in Kota Kinabalu.
The Trekking in Kinabalu National Park Tour from Kota Kinabalu is available in two options – coach and private. The private option offers you greater flexibility and you can spend as much or as little time at any of the places that you visit. Unlike coach tours, which have tight schedules, the private option allows you to do the tour at your own pace.
At the start of the tour, you will be picked up from your hotel in Kota Kinabalu and will drive through the Crocker Range seeing stunning views of the jungle-covered hills on the way. On the way, stop at the Nabalu village where you can enjoy some local bites and test your bargaining skills at roadside craftwork shops.
Then head on to Kinabalu Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located at the base of Mount Kinabalu. Standing at 4095 meters above sea level, Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in South East Asia. Its foothills and surroundings have an incredible diversity of flora and fauna and make up one of the most important biological sites in the world.
Botanical stars of the park include Rafflesia, the world's biggest flower – its huge red blossoms can reach more than 170 cm in diameter but it blooms only rarely. Another Kinabalu specialty is the giant pitcher plant Nepenthes raja, which can hold up to 3.5 liters of water and has even been known to catch frogs and small mammals. The forest trees are garlanded with colorful orchids which make it a delight to walk the trails.
More than 300 bird species have been recorded in Kinabalu including the mountain bush warbler, Kinabalu friendly warbler, pale-faced bulbul and mountain black eye. Small mammals which inhabit the jungle include mountain squirrels, tree shrews and bats.
At the Park, you will enjoy a guided nature walk along one of the graded trails. You will also visit the Mountain Garden, where you will see a stunning collection of orchids, pitcher plants and other fascinating flora, some of which are found only at Kinabalu Park.
All this activity and fresh air will surely make you hungry. Enjoy your lunch amidst the picturesque mountain garden.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Kota Kinabalu.
