If time and weather permits, take a guided walk on one of the trails in the cool surrounding mountain forests.
Your day comprises of a visit to the Poring Hot Springs ranger station which lies 40 kms from Kinabalu Park HQ in the humid lowlands.

You then board a boat for a 2.5 hour boat ride along the coast, through the mangroves and into the Kinabatangan river heading for Sukau Rain Forest Lodge.
Sepilok Orang-Utan Rehabilitation Centre was set up in 1964 to rehabilitate orphaned baby orangutans. Set amidst a lush 4,300-hectares of Kabili-Sepilok Forest, the Centre attracts tourists and researchers alike, giving them all the opportunity to watch the orangutans up close and in their natural habitat.
Today you will be driven overland to the Gomantong Caves. Here you trek for 20 minutes through the rainforest to the cave entrance.
