We went as part of a day trip also to poring springs with TYH Borneo tours, who we would highly recommend. We got to see mount Kinabalu from a distance and also a jungle trek. Amazing views and experience

I have been to this place few times already, and I fall in love over and over again with their majestic view of mount Kinabalu. This is by far the top of my favourite place in Malaysia!
