Maliau

MALIAU
BASIN

Located around the center of Sabah, The Maliau basin Conservation Area represents a natural catchment surrounding the Maliau River. Designated a class 1 protected forest reserve it remains largely undiscovered befitting its nickname - Sabah’s Lost World.

Only until the 80’s was an expedition sent in where it was discovered that the area is a self contained ecosystem with an abundance of wildlife.

With the opening of the Maliau Basin Studies Centre, visitors can now visit the area, and who knows, make a discovery of their own.

A popular visit would be to the 7 tier Maliau falls. A sight not easily forgotten.

As it is a very remote area, visitors have to be physically fit as trekking can be up to 8 hours mostly uphill, and to also have insurance that covers helicopter evacuation.

 

Accommodation and meals are basic, but if you look for something challenging with a unique and remote jungle experience, then a visit to Maliau is a must.
