The Bornean Hidden Valley

IMBAK CANYON CONSERVATION AREA

In the centre of Borneo, there is a hidden valley called Imbak Canyon. Located 300 kilometres from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, and is nestled between cliffs of over 1,000 metres high sandstone.  This area contains some of the oldest rainforest tracts in the world, some of which are almost 100 million years old, are found in this region.  Imbak Canyon Forest, which was designated a Class 1 (Protection) Forest Reserve in 2009, now serves as a vital wildlife corridor connecting Maliau Basin and Danum Valley.

Visit The Stunning Imbak Falls

There's no better place to find yourself than sitting by the Imbak Falls and listening to its music.  Either you want to get soaked by the waterfalls or not, Imbak Falls are the best when you can stand close to it and get soaked by the spray.

Look closely and you will see hundreds of cascading "miniature waterfalls" on the sandstone or mudstone layers of Imbak Falls, a very interesting feature.  The water is in light tea color but it is very clean.  The color is caused by the tannins leaching out from the plant growing in Imbak Canyon.
