Itinerary

DAY 1

Pick up from Kota Kinabalu Airport around 11 am and begin the journey to Sabahs lost world, Maliau Basin. Along the way, you will pass through the Crocker Ranges scenic winding roads and through to Keningau, around 2 hours from Kota Kinabalu. There will be a brief stop in Keningau and a visit to the local market to purchase last minute supplies. Once you reach the Maliau gate, usually early in the afternoon, it is just another 30 - 40 minutes to reach the study centre, stretch your legs, check-in and have a brief orientation of the facilities. In the late afternoon, you will embark on an introductory walk of the area surrounding the centre and learn about some of the incredible biodiversity of this rarely visited part of Borneo. After dinner, you have the option to either join a night drive or night walk to spot nocturnal wildlife, both options included.

DAY 2

Wake up early to enjoy your breakfast and re-pack your bag, around 8 am you will head to Agathis camp to begin the trek to Ginseng camp. The trek to Ginseng camp is 9km, comprised of mixed trails, several gentle uphill sections and a journey time of around 5 - 6 hours. Lunch will be had along the way, and with some luck, you may get the chance to glimpse a variety of different animals including Borneon Gibbons or Redleaf Monkeys. Ginseng camp is nestled in very close to Ginseng falls, this is where you can choose to spend your afternoon and take a refreshing afternoon dip before returning to the camp for dinner and lights out.

DAY 3

After breakfast, you will pack your lunch and head for Maliau falls, the highlight of any trip to Maliau Basin! The trek is around 4.5km each way on a steep trail with ropes to assist you in places. It should take you around 2 - 3hours each way, so you will get plenty of time to swim, eat your lunch and enjoy the beautiful area surrounding the falls. In the early afternoon, begin your hike back up the hill to Ginseng camp for dinner and lights out.

DAY 4

After you have finished your breakfast at Ginseng camp, begin 9km hike back to Agathis Camp to meet your driver. Today is around 9km and should take around 5 hours with time to have your final packed lunch along the way. Once you reach Agathis Camps, it's time to de-leech and begin the 5 - 6 hour drive back to Kota Kinabalu. Expected arrival back into Kota Kinabalu is around 7 pm.
