Jungle Trekking

Sabah&rsquo's largely unexplored rainforests offer an excellent chance for trekkers, hikers, and climbers to discover the diverse yet at the same time marvelous array in the flora and fauna of its forests. One of the main attractions has always been the Rafflesia which is the largest flower in the world. Its stinking smell might drive you away, but ironically it is also one of its high points. As you tread your way through the blooming flowers and lush vegetation, you might get lucky enough to view a pair of Orang-utans. The waterfalls, rivers, green foliage, and the surroundings are so beautiful that even the camera lenses are not apt enough to capture their beauty.
