Kinabalu National Park Tours

Kinabalu National Park
Reigned over by the mighty Mt. Kinabalu—the tallest mountain in Malaysia—Kinabalu National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its biodiversity. A paradise for nature lovers, the park is home to around 5,500 plant species (including varieties of orchids and pitcher plants), about 326 bird species, and more than 100 mammals. 

The Basics 
Even if you’re not keen to summit 13,435-foot (4,095-meter) Mt. Kinabalu, you’ll still find plenty to do in Kinabalu National Park. Tours commonly leave from Kota Kinabalu, and generally include access to the canopy walkway and the opportunity to soak in the thermal waters of Poring Hot Springs. Some give you free time to explore the park’s well-marked trails, and most include lunch and hotel pickup and drop-off. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • The altitude of the park means you can expect showers any time of year, so take a waterproof jacket. 
  • Take water and snacks with you as well, as there aren’t many shops inside the park. 
  • Due to uneven terrain, Kinabalu National Park is a difficult place for wheelchairs and strollers to access. 
  • The villages on either side of the park have several basic accommodation options—it’s a good idea to book in advance. 

How to Get There 
From Kota Kinabalu, it takes around two hours to reach Kinabalu National Park by road. Rent a car, go as part of a guided day trip (most of which include round-trip transfers), or take a minibus from the Kota Kinabalu bus terminal. Buses usually wait till they’re full to depart.  

When to Get There 
Borneo’s dry season stretches from March to September, making it the ideal time for outdoor exploration. The park is open daily—if you’re visiting from Kota Kinabalu, arrive as early as possible to make the most of your day. 

Climbing Mt. Kinabalu 
If you’re up to the challenge, climbing Mt. Kinabalu is one of the best outdoor experiences Borneo has to offer. Ascending Malaysia’s highest mountain takes two days, and requires a 2am start to reach the summit before sunrise. You must also climb with a guide and a permit. Most climbing tours include accommodation and hearty meals midway up the mountain.

Malaysia Kinabalu Park One Day Tour ATV/Paragliding

Malaysia Kinabalu Park One Day Tour ATV/Paragliding

Driving an ATV through the jungles, countryside, Stonehenge, cattle ranches and other places in Kinabalu Park. Driving along the scenery will let you have another experience of Kinabalu Park’s scenery. DESA Cattle Farm is located at the foot of Kinabalu Park, behind the town of Kundasang, at an altitude of about 2000 meters. The DESA alpine dairy farm is one of the largest farms in Sabah, with about 199 hectares and 600 black and white dairy cattle. The air here is especially cold and clear, and coming here, because that's where the cattle live, you may have to endure the stench of cow dung, but the scenery is so fascinating that you forget the smell. The most interesting thing is that the cows do not need to be guided. They will automatically wait in line to be milked at the automated milking station. You can watch the milking process or buy fresh milk in the lobby.
