Mahua Waterfalls continue to awe visitors

KOTA KINABALU: Mahua Waterfalls nestled in pristine jungle and gushing with crystal clear waters is fast gaining popularity as a tourism attraction since it opened to the public in June 2003.

At 20 metres high, it is situated along the Crocker Range and only 26km from Tambunan town.

Despite the lack of infrastructure, Mahua Waterfalls continues to draw visitors and perhaps one main attraction other than the pure and natural surroundings is the cool and temperate climate.

During the day the temperature hovers around 23 degrees Celsius and can plunge to 15 degrees Celsius at night.

The area is managed by the Sabah Parks and according to Ranger James Soibi, there were 5,022 visitors to Mahua last year from as far as Canada, USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Norway and Australia as well as Brunei.
