A trip taking you from sea level up into the cool heights of the foothills of Mount Kinabalu to the depth of the tropical jungle, over challenging roads across the Crocker Range and to the heartland of the Murut community. Along the way, you will see some of the most spectacular scenery in Sabah; beautiful rivers, wild animals and the rich, evergreen tropical jungle.
