Get ready to go bananas on this stunning trek through the mountains and jungles of Borneo, finishing at an awesome orangutan orphanage.
Starting with a flight to Koto Kinabalu, we trek from the foothills of Mount Kinabalu through lush jungles, bursting with amazing Malaysian wildlife. Bring your binoculars and look out for elephants, proboscis monkeys and orangutans. With birdsong as our soundtrack, we’ll venture through rolling rice paddies, mountain valleys and rainforest.
Along the way, we’ll encounter small villages with friendly locals, stay in beautiful jungle camps and cosy homestays and learn loads about the charming Sabah culture.
The rugged and sometimes slippery terrains may be challenging, but the views more than make up for it and we’ll conquer our trek with unforgettable memories and a bunch of new friends made.
As if that’s not enough to go ape about, we also see an awesome cultural show in Kundasang and visit the baby orangutans in the invaluable Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. This amazing orangutan orphanage is dedicated to raising and rehabilitating the orphaned apes, while minimising deforestation. What a way to end our adventure!
Why not jump on the opportunity to extend your stay in Malaysia to explore the paradise island of Mabul? We can arrange this for you upon your request.
Giving back to the planet - We have picked suppliers local to the area and we're off-setting the carbon of the domestic flights and all ground operations for this challenge; so rest assured that we are minimising the impact of your trek!
What's more, the Orangutan Orphanage we visit use their profits to help the animals in their care and save them from extinction.
