Road in to Maliau BasinRoad in to Maliau BasinRoad in to Maliau Basin

the road is batter now...but it was fun 10 years ago
It always fascinates me when i go to maliau basin, for trekking or just for a short trip recently i went with a bunch of riders for a 2 days 1 night ride. just to spend a night in the wilderness of the rain forest riding in the rain was fun slippery road mad it though but exciting. we didnt manage to spend more time as we arrived quite late in the evening.

Trekking in maliau basin is also something to do when you are in North Borneo,..its called the lost world for a reason. Not much people come hear at the moment so its worth the while before it is commercialized in the future. You can do bird watching at the study center or go for a night drive along the roads and observe wildlife..if it does not rain though if it does it will be impossible to drive on the slippery and muddy roads. The sky bridge is also very interesting as the suspension bridge is connected to 7 80 mtr timber tree and get a birds eye view of the world below.

But if you do go to maliau basin ensure to take the adventure to
