Selamat datang! Welcome to Malaysia.
Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm on Day 1.
Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability). If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be collecting your insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting, so please ensure you have all these details to provide to your leader.
Kuching, meaning 'cat' in Malay, is arguably the most pleasant city in Malaysian Borneo. It was home to the infamous White Raja of Sarawak whose mysterious rule in this remote corner of the world sparked the imagination of many people who dreamt of becoming royalty. Rich in architecture, the waterfront houses a wealth of curio shops and local vegetable, spice and fish markets.
Parts of your trip go above 2800 metres / 9200 feet where it is common for travellers to experience some adverse health effects due to the altitude - regardless of your age, gender and fitness. It even happened to Sir Edmund Hillary!
Before your trip: Some pre-existing medical conditions are known to severely worsen at high altitude and be difficult to adequately treat on the ground, leading to more serious consequences. It is imperative that you discuss your pre-existing medical condition/s with your doctor. We understand certain medications are reported to aid acclimatising to high altitude. Please discuss these options with your doctor.
During your trip: While our leaders have basic first aid training and are aware of the closest medical facilities, it is very important that you are aware of the cause and effects of travelling at altitude, monitor your health and seek assistance accordingly. Please read the following document carefully and, during your trip, utilise the table on the back daily to record your own perspective of your general health and any symptoms you may experience:

Day 2 Bako National Park
Transfer via minivan to the fishing village of Kampung Bako (approx 1 hr).
Take a local boat up the coast to Bako National Park. (approx 20 mins)
Bako is the oldest national park in Sarawak and features rainforest, abundant wildlife, jungle streams, waterfalls, interesting plant life, secluded beaches and trekking trails. Millions of years of erosion have created a coastline of steep cliffs, rocky headlands and stretches of white, sandy bays. Wave erosion at the base of the cliffs has carved many of the rocky headlands into fantastically shaped sea arches and sea-stacks with coloured patterns formed by iron deposits.
There are many jungle trails to traverse in Bako, each offering an insight into the island's botanical diversity. Weather permitting, your leader will take you on walk to the beautiful beach at Telok Pandan Kecil (5 km, approx 3 hrs return). The trail climbs through the forest before emerging onto an open plateau covered in scrub sometimes where pitcher plants can be seen- it can be a hot but rewarding hike. For those looking for a longer (or shorter) hike you are free to explore as many of the 18 different trails as you like. Whatever you plan, check with the ranger for the best time to spy the proboscis monkeys coming to feed from the beach mangroves. Wild pigs also grace this abundant island.
In the evening we will take a night walk, a rare chance to experience the jungle in a different light.
We stay in basic National Park lodgings - fan cooled, multi shared rooms. Most visitors will only come to Bako on a day trip so after 4pm we will often have the beach to ourselves and is prime time for wildlife spotting and spectacular sunsets. We think this is the best time to be at Bako National Park and is why we prefer to stay overnight, even if the accommodation is basic it's worth it for this experience!

Day 3 Kuching
Return to Bako Village by boat (it may be necessary to depart the park earlier or later subject to weather conditions).
Travel in a private minivan to Kuching via the Semenggoh Orangutan Sanctuary.
Explore the Semenggoh Orangutan Sanctuary, a government-funded rehabilitation centre set in lush surrounds. Head into the jungle via a walkway to watch the orangutan feed - a truly remarkable sight.
Return to the hotel where you can freshen up from the heat and head out to one of the many Chinese-influenced hawker markets for dinner and experience the range of local seafood.

Day 4 Iban Longhouse
Today we take a flight to Miri where we will be sending our large bags to Limbang and packing a day bag for the next 4 nights.
You will need to carry your own backpack out to the longhouse and along the headhunters trail in Mulu. Your leader can arrange a porter for your small bag for an extra charge.
We drive 1-2 hours to Niah National park. Niah NP is where the oldest human remains in South East Asia have been unearthed dating back 40,000 years. There is a small museum that we can visit before starting the 3.5 KM walk through the rainforest to an Iban longhouse.
Meet the local community and participate in a traditional Iban welcome before we're billeted out into different homes in the longhouse. This is a very traditional and authentic experience and the sleeping and bathing arrangements are very basic.
In the afternoon there is the chance to visit Niah caves a 2km walk from our longhouse where you can still see some ancient cave drawings and wonder through these vast bat filled caves.

Homestay (1 nt)
Days 5-7 Mulu National Park
Today we say goodbye to our hosts and make the short walk back to Niah National park head Quarters (3.5KM) and travel back to Miri airport to make the short flight to Mulu. The maximum luggage allowance for the flight is 15kg, and Intrepid won't cover the cost of luggage that exceeds this weight.
Head into the heart of one of the most spectacular national parks in Asia - Gunung Mulu National Park. Spend the afternoon strolling the walkways and catching the sunset flight of the bats at Deer Cave. This spectacular cave is home to millions of bats and at dusk they emerge for their nightly feeding, looking like a black plume of smoke moving across the sky.
Stay in the park headquarters which has its own restaurant and information centre. Accommodation is multishare rooms with private bathrooms.
Set out to explore the amazing Wind and Clearwater Caves, which contain Asia's longest underground river.
Take a longboat downriver before disembarking to hike through the jungle to Camp 5 (approx 8.5 km). During dry season we may need to push the boats over sections of the river so it is advisable to wear shoes that can get wet or strap on sandals.
At Camp 5 you will sleep on mats on raised open air platforms in a mixed gender dormitory with shared bathroom facilities and cold water showers. Bedding is not provided so bring your own sleeping sheet and a warm layer for cool nights. Mosquito nets are available to rent for a small charge.

Day 8 Headhunters' Trail/Limbang
Take a longboat to Medamit (approx 4 hrs).
Transfer by minivan to the town of Limbang (approx 1 hr).
Set off to tackle the infamous Headhunters' trail. Located in an isolated area of the Borneo jungles this 11.3 km trail (approx 5 hrs) takes its name from its historical role as the route taken by warring parties between the Tutoh and Limbang rivers. The trek is through dense jungle along a well-defined, mainly flat track, although the way can be muddy during the rainy season. You'll also have to cross some streams by bridges, logs or getting your feet wet wading through. We take a boat from Kuala Trekian to Kuala Medamit a journey of approx. 3 hours. Depending on how much rainfall there has been you may be required to help push the boat over shallow parts of the river. We will stop at a ranger station for lunch along the way. Today is a long, challenging but rewarding day. We will be reunited with our large bags in Limbang

Days 9-10 Kota Kinabalu
Travel by ferry first to Labuan (approx. 2 hours) where we have time to get a quick lunch and perhaps pick up some duty free before taking another Ferry to Kota Kinabalu (approx 3 hrs) - to our city hotel located in the heart of Kota Kinabalu.
Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, is an intriguing city between the Borneo jungle and the South China Sea. Having survived World War II bombings, 'KK' (as it's commonly known) is now a vibrant, modern waterfront city.
As this is a combination trip, your group leader and the composition of your group may change at this location. There will be a group meeting to discuss the next stage of your itinerary and you're welcome to attend, as this is a great chance to meet your new fellow travellers.
There is the chance to take an optional visit to Mari Mari Cultural Village to see how indigenous ethnic groups of Borneo used to live. It's a great chance to see what the culture and lifestyle would have been like years gone by seeing first hand how the tribes would cook their meals, starting fire with bamboo and using a blow pipe to hunt. It's a fun, interactive and educational experience.
There is the option to do a scuba dive trip from Manukan Island to see the wonderful underwater world of Borneo. Please let your leader know if you are interested in doing this and they can help you organise it on the trip.

Day 11 Dusun Village
Travel by minivan to a Dusun village near the base of Mt Kinabalu (approx 2 hrs).
The Dusun people, the ethnic group of our guides on Mt Kinabalu, are wonderfully warm and friendly people and while here you'll have the opportunity to learn about their traditional way of life. The location for our homestay is a village nestled amid picturesque hills in the shadow of Mt Kinabalu, the highest mountain between the Himalayas and New Guinea. Weather dependent we will go for a trek around the surrounding fruit and rubber plantations.
We stay in multishare accommodation. Facilities are basic with shared bathroom and cold water only. To ensure we do not disrupt the homestay community we participate in a variety of homestay programs. Sometimes we split up our groups to stay in a couple of different family homes or we may be accommodated in simple rooms outside of the family house. Your leader will discuss the type of homestay experience with you on day one of your group meeting. Homestay's are a great way to experience local life and we are very fortunate to be able to offer this type of accommodation.
A great way to cool off is a refreshing dip in the local river near the homestay. Your leader can point you in the right direction. Please note though the river swim activity is very dependant on the weather.

Days 12-13 Mt Kinabalu
Say goodbye to our village friends and travel to the headquarters of Kinabalu National Park (approx 1 hour).
You will have some free time to prepare for the climb up Mt Kinabalu and to enjoy the surroundings of this World Heritage site. There are some beautiful nature trails you can follow through the lowland tropical forest or stop by the Botanic Garden - this 5-acre garden is an excellent showcase of the diverse plant life on the mountain, as flora from all over the park has been replanted here. Otherwise, feel free to just relax in the afternoon and take in the cooler clime. Your leader will provide a safety briefing about the climb and assist with any last minute questions.
Stay overnight at the park's headquarters in dormitory accommodation with shared facilities. Nestled amongst the lowland forests, this is the perfect place to relax before the climb. Breakfast is provided.
Rise early the next day, recheck our day packs and begin the climb up Mt Kinabalu. It's not an easy walk, being uphill all the way, and you need to be prepared to tackle a trail made up of steep steps that vary considerably in size. Altitude can also affect you, regardless of your fitness level, and it will certainly slow you down a fair bit (it's important that you educate yourself about the dangers of altitude sickness and its symptoms). Ensure you have warm layers, waterproof gloves, hat, head torch, waterproof jacket and good walking shoes/boots. The top of the mountain can be deceptively cold.
However, there's absolutely no rush so take your time and enjoy the pristine environment - this is an area which boasts a remarkable variety of plant life, including some 1,000 species of orchid and the extraordinary carnivorous pitcher plant. We cover 6 km on the first day (approx 4-6 hrs) and stop at a resthouse near Laban Rata (3,272 m) for the night. The resthouses have very basic, mixed gender, multishare bunk rooms, additional blankets can be hired from the park office. Go to bed early, so you're ready for the final climb in the morning.
We consider the Mt Kinabalu trek to be a huge highlight of the trip. Porters are also available (at extra cost) and are recommended, but if you decide the trek is just not for you, we can provide alternative arrangements if advised at time of booking. Please note that if you decide not to climb the only meal included is breakfast. For more information on the trekking alternative please see the 'Important Notes' section in the trip notes.

Days 14-15 Poring Hot Springs
Rise around 2am in order to catch the sunrise at the summit of Mt Kinabalu (4,095 m). It's difficult walking, but you'll feel a huge sense of achievement. Also, the view from the summit is stupendous - the jungles of Borneo in one direction, the South China Sea in the other, making every inch of the climb worthwhile. Be warned though, the temperature can change very quickly up on the mountain, some days it can be 10-15 degrees, other days it can drop below freezing! Bring plenty of warm clothes so as you are prepared for all weather conditions.
The climb from Laban Rata to the summit takes between 2 and 4 hours. Even if you are very fit you may find this section of the climb difficult because of the altitude. After leaving Laban Rata it is approx. 350 Meters along man made steps to some viewing decks before a section of wooden steps with handrails. After this there are 2 steep wooden steps sections with a rope to hold onto, there is a rope section of about 20 meters where climbers need to hold onto with both hands as you ascend. After that the path levels out as you pass through a boulder field and join Sayat Sayat which is the last check point before the summit where there is also toilets. From Sayat Sayat there is a rope marking the route to the summit a distance of about 1.8KM. The new trail is about 400 Metres longer than the old route. Waterproof gloves are recommended to protect your hands from rope burn (as well as to keep them warm).
After witnessing the morning sunrise, return to Laban Rata for breakfast, then descend the mountain (approx 3-6 hrs) and enjoy a rewarding lunch at the bottom.
Once everyone is down from the mountain we continue on to Poring Hot Springs by bus (approx 1 hour).
Poring Hot Springs was developed by the Japanese during World War II and now warm sulphur water is piped into several open-air Japanese style baths. The hot springs are said to have curative properties for the skin and, if nothing else, they're soothing after a Mt Kinabalu climb. The pools at the springs are quite simple, there is the option of hiring a private bath for a small charge. There are also cold water pools to swim in. Poring Hot Springs is very popular with the locals. Depending on the time of year it might be possible to see the Raffelsia flower nearby. Rafflesia’s are the world’s largest flower and can grow up to 1 metre in size!
Soak your weary limbs in the famous outdoor thermal pools - sheer bliss!
There are a number of optional activities from which to choose. There are graded paths leading through rich lowland forest to mountain rivers, waterfalls and bat caves - with birds and other wildlife often seen along the trail. A walkway in the tree canopy provides magnificent views or visit the enchanting butterfly farm. You may also choose to trek to the lovely Laganan Falls or just laze about in the hot and cold pools.
There is a jungle camp located in primary rainforest about 30 minutes’ walk from the springs called Lupa Masa (which means forget time) for those with more energy its possible to arrange a trek up here to bathe in a cool and refreshing river and take lunch. This must be arranged in advance through your group leader at the group meeting on day one.
We stay at a hostel in Poring Hot Springs. This is an ideal place to kick back for a day to recuperate after the Mountain climb. At the Hostel you will be accommodated on a twin share basis. Some rooms have bunk beds, multiple beds and the bathroom is shared, there are no double beds. The Hostel is located right inside the springs complex itself and has a light and airy lounge room for you to relax in.

Day 16 Kinabatangan River
Journey by private bus to, Bilet a small village on the banks of the Kinabatangan River (approx 5 hrs).
We travel by boat for 5 -10 minutes to the lodge. The lodge is located directly on the river and is a good place to spot wildlife.
In the early evening we will head out by motorised boat in search of wildlife such as macaques, Orangutan and proboscis monkey’s and if you are lucky you might spot some pygmy elephants. In the evening we take a night walk in search of the western Tarsier. Rubber boots and leech socks are available to hire.
We will be staying in a comfortable jungle lodge with private bathrooms.

Day 17 Sandakan
We take another early morning cruise in search of wildlife. After breakfast we say goodbye to our Jungle Lodge and hit the road in our private mini van to Sandakan. (approx 3 hours)
Along the way we have the option to stop at the Gomantong caves (entrance fee not included) The caves are renowned for their valuable edible swiftlet nests, which are harvested for bird's nest soup. Birds' nest collection is an ancient tradition, but nowadays locals must have licenses to climb to the roof of the caves, and collect the nests and penalties are imposed on unlicensed collectors. This stop is also a great chance to spot orangutans amongst the forest.
The busy city of Sandakan has a strong Cantonese influence which is evident in the lively harbourside market, the many Chinese temples and the local cuisine.
We have free time here to catch up on laundry and banking as well as to explore the city.
Get some insight into the city's past at the emotive War Memorial, built on the site of a Japanese POW camp. This site also marks the starting point of the tragic Sandakan Death Marches, on which 2,400 POWs were forced to walk through the jungles of Borneo. By the end of the march, only 6 Australians survived, and only because they had escaped.

Day 18 Turtle Island
This morning we will leave our large bags at the hotel and walk 15 minutes to a nearby jetty. Travel by speedboat, past fishing villages and bamboo fish traps, to Turtle Island Marine Park (approx 1 hours), where green turtles come ashore to lay their eggs every night of the year.
In the afternoon, there's time for swimming, snorkelling or lazing about on this tropical island. Snorkelling gear is available for hire.
In the evening, we hope to witness the heartwarming display of a mother turtle laying her eggs and watch the researchers as they release protected hatchlings and guide them in their frantic dash to the ocean. It's a moving experience that makes you think twice about trying illegally traded turtle egg delicacies.
This is a very delicate environment and you must follow instructions from your leader and the local rangers to ensure minimal impact on the turtles.

Day 19 Sepilok Orangutan Reserve
After breakfast we return to the mainland (approx 2 hours) and walk back to the hotel to collect our big bags before continuing on to a guesthouse located near the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre by mini bus (approx 45 mins).
The Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre was set up to help re-introduce these wonderful creatures back into the wild after a life of domestication or having been orphaned. To aid the orangutans adapt to the wild, a supplementary diet of bananas and milk is laid out on feeding platforms twice a day. From the viewing platform, you can watch and photograph these charming creatures as they swing into view on ropes and vines. We're not permitted to hinder the orangutans as human contact must be kept to a minimum and it's essential that we follow the instructions of the park, as directed by your leader. There's also a short film about the orangutan rehabilitation process to watch in the reserve's interpretation centre.
A new section has now opened up at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre which is the outdoor nursery where young orangutans will be cared for from being born in captivity or when their mothers have been killed. These youngsters have not had the chance of a natural upbringing and don’t have the skills to be able to survive in the wild. The aim of the nursery is to train these your Orangutans to climb and be normal Orangutans so that they can be reintroduced to the wild. Included in our entrance ticket you will have the chance to view these young Orangutans as they learn how to climb on a specially constructed jungle gym. The viewing area is behind one-way glass so as not to disturb the Orangutans.
If you want to see some more of Borneo's beautiful creatures, perhaps visit the newly opened Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Center. This is a wonderful new center taking care of rescued Sun Bears that have spent many years mistreated and locked away in cages. Borneo Sun Bear Conservation center is giving a better life to these bears by caring for them with the hope of reintroducing them back into the wild. They are doing great work at promoting Sun Bear conservation in Borneo through animal welfare, conservation, rehabilitation, research and education - to put a stop to these cruel practices. There is plenty of time for an optional visit to see these very cute bears!
Visit the Labuk Bay Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary where you can watch up close the amazing bachelor proboscis lazing and feeding - an experience that can only be found in Borneo. The sanctuary is a protected forest reserve inhabited by several groups of wild proboscis monkeys.
Explore the Rainforest Discovery Centre, located five minutes walk from our guesthouse. The centre has been established for environmental education and is situated within the famous Kabili-Sepilok Forest Reserve. Its primary function is to create public awareness of the importance of conserving forests, as well as the sustainable use of forest resources. You can experience forest life high in the canopy - the 147 m long, 28 m high canopy walkway enables spectacular views of beautiful rainforest giants like the mengaris tree. There are also 250 species of bird to look out for.
Our guesthouse is located about 20 minutes walk from the rehabilitation centre - it's a great place to relax or return to the reserve for the second feeding of the day.

Für alle, die die Welt so entdecken möchten, wie sie wirklich ist. Sie wollen Land und Leute richtig kennen lernen und jeden Tag spannende neue Erfahrungen machen. Sie unternehmen viele Aktivitäten in der Gruppe, haben aber auch individuellen Freiraum für eigene Erkundungen. Individuelle Freiheit wird mit der Sicherheit und dem gemeinschaftlichen Erlebnis einer kleinen Gruppe kombiniert. Mahlzeiten sind teilweise inbegriffen. Die Unterbringung reicht von einfachen oder Touristenklassehotels (2-3 Sterne) bis hin zur Unterbringung bei einheimischen Gastfamilien. Auch die Transportmittel variieren. Das authentische Erleben der Region, Kultur und Menschen vor Ort steht im Vordergrund.
Wenn Sie nicht an der Besteigung des Mt. Kinabalu teilnehmen möchten, haben Sie die Möglichkeit die betreffende Nacht am Fuße des Berges zu verbringen und am nächsten Tag wieder zur Gruppe zu stoßen (ggf. kann ein Aufpreis für die Unterkunft anfallen). Bitte informieren Sie uns bei Buchung, falls Sie die Besteigung auslassen möchten.
