Welcome to Wild Nature of Borneo

Kinabalu National Park Complex

The Park encompasses an area of 754 sq. km .has one of the most diverse flora and fauna populations in the world and is home to innumerable species of exotic plants, including the Pitcher Plant. There is a Canopy Walkway, a suspension bridge 200 feet above ground suspended between the tops of the trees. Originally built for research purposes, the Walkway is open to tourists so that they can enjoy a better view of the rainforests.


The Mount Kinabalu
The focal point of the park is Mt. Kinabalu, with its highest point that stands at 4,095.2 m above the sea level.

Rainforest Treetop Walkway

I was not afraid of the height, because I grew up living in a high-rise apartment. Takao, on the other hand, was very much afraid of the height and he became stuck in the middle of the Walkway.

Never look down !
