The East-West North Borneo Trail is an adventurous trip taking you from the East Coast to the West Coast of Sabah. The trip allows you to discover Sabah’s intriguing biodiversity, and the friendly interior people. This journey offers truly the best of North Borneo, from the coast to the forests, and you will be staying with Dusun/Kadazan and Murut people of the interior, and Orang Sungai on the Kinabatangan River that makes up for the biologically richest floodplain in the world. There are plenty of opportunities, especially in the Kinabatangan area, for watching wildlife such as the Proboscis monkeys, a curious creature endemic to Borneo, and the famous orang utans in Sepilok, in one of the world’s few orang utan rehabilitation centres. You will also visit Poring Hot Springs and the Kinabalu National Park, which has been recognised and classified as Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site.
