This fascinating journey takes you to uplands of Borneo for some hiking to encounter Sarawak's highlanders who until recently were completely isolated from the outside world, an ideal warm up for climbing SE Asia's highest peak, Mount Kinabalu. The tour starts in Sarawak's capital Kuching, to see Orangutans in the rainforest at Semonggoh and explore the walking trails and diverse flora of the Bako National Park, dramatically set against the South China Sea. Fly to Bario in Sarawak's interior for some superb hiking in unspoilt countryside, and to learn about the mystical traditions and longhouse culture of the local Kelabit people. After a day to rest in Sabah's coastal capital, travel to the Kinabalu National Park for the 2 day ascent of Mount Kinabalu which towers up to 4095m. Having completed the challenging climb head to nearby Dalit beach for some time to rest and relax by the sea.
