Maliau Basin or Maliau
Basin Conservation Area is a region located at the South Central Part of
Sabah, represents a geological catchments surrounding the Maliau River.
Bounded by a formidable escarpment reaching over 1,675m asl, the almost
circular Basin encompasses reaching over 390 km2 of pristine forest, a
virtually self-contained ecosystem, never permanently inhabited and with
large areas still remaining to be explored and documented. Dubbed as Sabah's
"Lost World", the incredible Maliau Basin rim is about 25 km in diameter,
which is slightly bigger than the Island of Singapore. For tourists, the
highlight of the adventure is to trek through the rainforest to reach the
Camel Trophy Camp and later, to reach the Ginseng Camp, all the way to the
majestic 7-tier Maliau Falls. Click here for tour information.
