Must see · Valley · Wildlife Area
Trek the humid rainforests of Danum Valley Conservation Area, a conservation area never before disturbed by human settlement. You have the option of exploring the jungle yourself, but if you wish to see as much as you can during your stay, consider booking a guide. The dense greenery shelters many wild species, including wild orangutans, boars, porcupines, birds, and many species of monkeys. You might come across a tarantula or two, so leave any fear of creepy crawlies back home. Besides a daytime tour, you can also opt for a night trek and bird watching. Adventurous visitors can also try a canopy walk above the jungle. Arrange to visit Danum Valley Conservation Area and other attractions in Kunak using our Kunak tour itinerary planning tool.
