MOUNT KINABALU & TREKKING > Mount Trusmadi 4 days / 3 nights)

The remote peak of Mount (Gunung) Trusmadi is the second highest mountain in Sabah. Located within a forest reserve, this mountain is extremely rich in flora and fauna which makes a wonderful trekking environment. Unlike Mount Kinabalu, few tourists venture up Gunung Trusmadi, and very often you have the mountain all to yourself. This is partly due to the remoteness of the reserve as well as the steep and challenging terrain of the mountain.
