KOTA KINABALU: Sabah is slowly becoming a haven for short getaways, especially for eco-tourism lovers as it unveils more places outside the city.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, less than two hours away, are dozens of mini parks and hills for hiking which lead to rivers, waterfalls and homestays fit for family trips.
Among them is Kampung Tambatuon Eco-Tourism Park in Kota Belud, some 80km from here.
This place offers visitors options for hiking the Nungkok hill, go for wet hiking at the Kilombun River, feed fish and get feet massage at the Tagal river there, and lastly take a dip at the waterfall.
On rare occasions if the timing is right, visitors can also see Rafflesia flowers along their hike.
Another spot nearby is the Eko Pelancongan Tagal Kampung Talungan, where its main attraction is the river where people can swim with freshwater fish, walk on a suspension bridge and camp.
Not far away, a similar eco-park – Kampung Terintidon eco-tourism in Kota Belud – is also a new attraction.
