Borneo Three Peaks is a unique adventure that is not just your standard Mount Kinabalu (4095m) ascent. The expedition also takes you to the remote parts of Borneo to climb the Mulu Pinnacles and the wild and rarely climbed peak of Mount Trusmadi (2642m), where few tourists venture but from where you get the most spectacular sunrise views back over to Malaysia’s highest peak. You experience a longboat journey, the cave exodus of two million bats as featured in the BBC series Planet Earth. It is just one of many natural wonders to find in this off-the-beaten trail and tropical paradise alongside turtles, orangutans, pitcher plants, flora and fauna of the mossy jungle as an alien world, like entering the world of ‘Lord of the Rings’. Add to this a tropical island, the world’s longest cave system and the world’s highest via ferrata, it is just an amazing trip in just two weeks!!
The Borneo Three Peaks expedition now includes an overnight stay on Selingan Turtle Island and a visit to the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre to give you the opportunity to recover in readiness for Mt Kinabalu. Fly to Sandakan, upon arrival transfer for an hour’s jet boat ride to Turtle Island, transfer to lodge/hotel for lunch. The afternoon is free to relax, snorkel or bird watch! In the evening you are escorted down to view the green turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs and to see the hatching baby turtles scurrying off out to sea.
Those with more time available can extend their journey through Borneo with a relaxing stay on a tropical island such as Gaya.
