Jungle Trekking

Sabah's rainforest are still largely unexplored and offer trekkers, hikers and climbers an excellent chance to discover a fascinating array of flora and fauna. One of main attractions has always been the Rafflesia, which is the largest flower in the world and probably the one with the most unpleasant smell! As you tread your way through the blooming flowers and lush vegetation, you might get lucky enough to view a pair of Orang-utan. The waterfalls, rivers, green foliage and the surroundings are so amazing that even the best camera lenses rarely capture its true beauty.
