Outdoor Treks and Adventures
Sabah and Ba'Kelalan 4X4 Expedition
Departure date: TBA
YouTube Ba'Kelalan Expedition Video
This expedition is perhaps one of the great ways to discover parts of Malaysian Borneo unseen by many and to experience a high adventure like the old Camel Trophy. It has something for everyone; from hot and humid sea level to altitudes of 2,000 meters where temperate vegetables blossoms in the cool mountain air.
Trail around Kinabalu areas
Temperate fruit orchard in Ba'Kelalan
One would drive on high roads that look down at clouds, rivers and isolated hill villages and enjoy vistas of rolling hills covered thick in tropical rainforest. Apart from driving along some of the best sceneries in Borneo, the other highlights of the trip would include a visit to Mesilau at the famed Kinabalu Park, to see the Nepenthes Rajah, the largest pitcher plant in the world, the Kundasang market which is fast becoming Malaysia’s vegetable basket where we will stay at Pine Resort that commands the best view of Mt. Kinabalu. We will also visit Ba’Kelalan, a village in the Sarawak highlands that has a unique and distinctive Lun Bawang culture where apples and a host of other temperate fruits grow.

Needless to say the drive will be the highlight as it covers good paved roads in Koto Kinabalu, uncovered mountain gravel roads lined with pine trees with extreme gradients in the Kinabalu highlands and on to the dirt and mud roads where conditions varies with the weather to Ba’Kelalan.
