Mount Trusmadi

If you're looking for true adventure, Mount Trusmadi gives you just that. Hailed as the second tallest mountain Malaysia, the mountain is known for its steep and rough terrain, surpassing Mount Kinabalu in climbing difficulty.

Maliau Basin

This otherworldly forest reserve is unlike anything you've ever seen. With its amazing geological structures and an array of biodiversity contained within a 'basin' hidden away from the world, it's no wonder they call Maliau Basin 'The Lost World'.

Danum Valley

Danum Valley is one of the few nature reserves known for its 'untouched' beauty. Before it became a protected area, no human settlements existed in the valley, preserving the pristine conditions of the rainforest. The valley also has a number of treks, and you may even pass by some pagan burial sites along the way.
