KAWANG JUNGLE EXPERIENCE DAY TRIP

KAWANG JUNGLE EXPERIENCE DAY TRIP

Kawang Jungle Experience day trip is conducted at the Kawang Forest Reserve or called as ‘Hutan Lipur Kawang‘ among local Sabahan is a spectacular 1,551 hectare forest reserve (about 28 kilometer from Kota Kinabalu city center) gazetted on Monday 16, 1957 in an effort to preserve and sustain the biodiversity of primary forest reserve.

In 1984, it was re-classified as a second class domestic forest reserve. The main function of the reserve is to supply gravity water from the onsite Tanaki waterfall system to the local population living within its proximity.

Outdoor enthusiasts who conquer this trek will have experienced the typical rough terrain of the Borneo jungle, whilst learning new skills & many facts about the local jungle environment. The forest is not often explored providing a chance to see and experience a peaceful, natural & beautiful environment.

If you’re wondering what a jungle experience is all about, it is actually a one day tour trip carrying your own equipment and resources like water, food and other items (such as camera or smartphone) and you trek through the jungle in a group, guided by a local guide.

The entrance fee to Kawang Forest Reserve is RM2.00 (Malaysian Ringgit) for adults and RM1.00 (Malaysian Ringgit) for children.
