Borneo Eco-Adventures

Borneo has the whole range of eco-adventures and daredevil thrills to enjoy. Choose from caving in the deep reaches of the Mulu Caves or bike across dirt tracks in the Danum Valley. You can also climb the highest peak in Southeast Asia, the Kinabalu Mountain or even take a cruise along Sarawak’s longest river, the Rajang. Those who love trekking, bird-watching and spotting wildlife will adore the many national parks found in Borneo such as Bako and Niah which are areas rich in flora and fauna. For example, the Sepilok Orang-Utan Sanctuary is a place where you can see these gentle primates feed and play during a lazy afternoon.
