Overview

Crave for an experience of an adventure jungle trekking with the natural beauty and astounding scenery of Borneo’s last great wilderness, is Sabah’s Lost World Maliau Basin. This awe-inspiring biological wonderland is arduous to reach, and well suited for those who do not mind being away from the city comforts and are adequately fit.

What is so astounding about Maliau is its absolutely untouched rainforest that grows within the Basin areas with its forest vegetation that changes composition with altitude, Maliau Basin bounded by escarpment reaching over 1, 675 Meters above sea level where stands an utterly different health forest structure altogether.

It is a haven to experience Maliau Basin, trekkers with keen interest in bird watching easily lost track of time with the numbers of birds sighting it has to offer. Then there is for those who take keen in nature photography, the magnificent beauty of Maliau Fall is the highlight that also offers refreshing cool swim after a tired day trek.

Be astonished with the chance of seeing the diversity of mammal here, where gibbons’ call filled up the early morning and small but easily spotted Red Leaf monkeys swinging high above the canopy. Another fascinating mammal to look out for is the flying lemur. This peculiar mammal is an arboreal climber and glider with webbed feet and claws.

Presently Maliau Basin tour involves a five-day round trek from the nearest road access. It is an all camping jungle trekking expedition, with a low-impact adventure and wildlife tourism concepts. Maliau Basin awaits those adventurous at heart to experience her enthralling wonders and be lost in its natures splendor.

Did You Know?

Maliau Basin is not a crater or an extinct volcano; it is an uplifted plateau which has eroded in the middle giving it its saucer-like shape. There is only one river draining out of the whole Basin - the Maliau River! Because of its unique geological formation of sandstone & mudstone, Maliau is thought to have the highest number of waterfalls anywhere in Malaysia!
