Take some time away from the tropical weather (translation = the warmth!) of Sabah’s state capital, Kota Kinabalu, by heading for higher grounds to enjoy the cool mountain climate. On this overnight tour, you will visit Kinabalu National Park and Poring Hot Springs, and have a chance to explore Kundasang town nestled in a scenic valley at the foothills of Mount Kinabalu.
Kinabalu National Park, nestled in the Crocker Range, is the gateway to Mount Kinabalu and is Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. At 4,095.2 meters, Mount Kinabalu is Malaysia’s tallest mountain and one of the highest in Southeast Asia. For many, climbing this mountain is one of the main reasons to come to Sabah.
Kundasang lies in the valley approximately 6 kilometres away from Kinabalu National Park. This quaint town is renowned for its local fruit and vegetable market, open seven days a week. Located on the hill immediately behind the vegetable stalls is the Kundasang War Memorial. Comprising four beautiful gardens – the Australian Garden, the English Garden, the Borneo Garden and the Contemplation Garden, this memorial commemorates Australian and British Prisoners of War who died in Sandakan and during the infamous death marches to Ranau during World War II.
Poring Hot Springs, named after the tall bamboo plant found in abundance in the region, is approximately 47km from Kinabalu National Park. First discovered by Japanese soldiers during World War II, the area has been transformed into Japanese-style baths containing the spring’s natural sulphuric minerals, strongly believed to have healing values. A must visit for those who have just descended from Mount Kinabalu wishing to soak their aches and pains away.
