    Swim with the crocodile???

    by clsan Written Mar 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sungai (river in English) Kinabatangan, the longest river in Sabah. If you are a nature lover who are keen on seeing wildlife, make sure you book on this trip. If you are lucky you get to see wild elephants cross the rivers. I am quite lucky though because I got the opportunity to see wild crocodiles sun bathing near the shore and monkeys (inclusive of the endangered proboscis monkey) and hornbills. If you are a city people, you should check out the floating toilet used by the residents along the river. Ever heard about catching fish using just the plastic bottles? This is how the local people or known as "orang sungai" do fishing.

    Sunrise at the top of Malaysia

    by clsan Written Mar 17, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Your journey is not complete if you leave the state of Sabah without conquering Mount Kinabalu, highest peak of both Malaysia and South East Asia. Together with venturers from Scotland and England, I had conquered the peak on 9th Dec, 2002. All the climbers have to stay one night at Laban Rata before they proceed to the peak on the following morning around 2-3am.

    Although the trail is pretty easy, but you still require certain stamina to get to the top. Be aware that you may not be able to reach the top due to altitude sickness. MAKE SURE you bring enough warm clothing!

    Near the border with Sarawak, there is a small village called SINDUMIN.

    I don't know what you can do here, except perhaps MEDITATE.

    This picture is taken at Kipungit Recreation Area about 10 minutes from Poring Hot Spring.

    You can enjoy the cold water from the Kipungit Waterfall & it’s a great picnic site for families.

    Sabah is blessed with great rivers & virgin forest for maximum recreation needs. It’s by far very much undiscovered & full of mysteries.

    This is as off the beaten track as one can get !- visit to an offshore platform.
