Mount Trus Madi, 2, 642 meters (8, 668 feet) tall is the second highest mountain in Sabah and Malaysia after Mount Kinabalu. There are three (3) trails that lead to the peak of Mt. Trus Madi; 1) Kaingaran Trail, 2) Mastan Trail, 3) Mannan Trail. Mount Trus Madi used to require high fitness level and determination to conquer it for its difficulty, but after wooden walkway & resthouse was constructed by Forestry department in 2015, Kaingaran Trails turned into the trail which can be conquered even by beginner. To reach the summit from the starting point, climbers will be trekking through 2.2 kilometers of wooden walkway on the 1st day and continue 2.7 kilometers of heavily foliaged virgin rainforest on 2nd day. You will be fascinated by the beautiful pristine forest and welcomed by thousands of Nepenthes along the nature trail. One interesting thing to spot is the unique pitcher plant, Nepenthes x trusmadiensis—natural hybrid between Nepenthes lowii and Nepenthes macrophylla which is endemic to Mount Trus Madi alone.
◎THIS PROMOTION IS ONLY APPLICABLE FOR EVERY TUESDAY & SATURDAY FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER 2016, DECEMBER 2016, JANUARY 2017.

A river cruise is the best way to spot these 'local residents' - an adventure you won't soon forget!
Climbing Mt Kinabalu can be done in 2 days but a more comfortable climb in 3-days are recommended to acclimatise to the altitude and fully enjoy the rich biological diversity - the exotic rare plants, orchids, birds and many more.
While it does not require skills to do the climb, climbers must at least have a basic fitness level. Park regulations require climbers have to engage the services of a registered mountain guide.
The numbers of guides depend on the number of climbers. Porters services are available and recommended. Book and pay for your porter at the Kinabalu Park.
