A perfect way to walk off the xmas excess. A one and a half day Mount Kinabalu climb, reaching the peak just before sunrise on day two, for some beautiful views of the national park, then if you still have the energy a three day trek in the Maliau basin, some of Borneos only remaining primary rainforest. Day one's grueling uphill climb into the basin is particularly tough, where some bits are so steep that they have strapped ladders to the rock face, the next day is a little easier until you reach the Maliau falls and have to walk back up the very steep and slippery way you came in. Then day three is a pleasant meander through the rainforest with a little more time to take in the beautiful pitcher plants and fend off the persistant leaches! All in all a very rewarding trip, which you will finish with a great sense of achievement and absolute exhaustion!
Sutera Sanctuary Lodges run Mount Kinabalu climbs, and Borneo nature tours (an excellent tour company, with great guides) do five day treks in the Maliau basin. Air Asia do very reasonable flights to Kuala Lumpar then onto various airports in Borneo.
