Day 1

You will take an 8.00am bus ride from the Kota Kinabalu city centre to Sipitang. You will need to take a public bus, at your own expense, from the bus station in front of the Padang Merdeka and Dreamtel. The programme begins at the Sipitang town’s bus station, where I will meet you and other participants at 11.00am. You will have a bit of time to shop before having lunch at any of the nearby restaurants. Lunch will be at your own expense. At 12.30pm, we will start our journey to Long Pasia using a 4x4 ride. The ride is estimated to end around 4.00pm. Upon arrival, you will check-in at the Long Pasia homestay and enjoy the lush green forest and beautiful scenery at your own leisure. Dinner is served at 7.30pm. You are encouraged to have a good rest for the next day’s programme.

Day 2

Wake up at 6.30am to the call of the Borneo gibbon. After breakfast, we will start trekking to Mount Sinipong where the first camp site is located, and you will be guided in the setting up of your own tent or hammock. We will then trek to a hidden lake where you can spend your time swimming whilst enjoying the surrounding nature. Today, we will be doing between 5 to 6 hours of forest trekking. The location of this camp site is right by a stream where it is possible to have a delightful nature bath!

Day 3

Wake up early today because we will be making our way to a short trek into the forest for a spectacular view of the sunrise at Mount Sinipong. We will then head back to camp for breakfast, before starting our trek to a second camp site named Pasia river camp site. Trekking to this place will take between 4 to 5 hours and since it is a bit hilly, there are two areas where we will need to hold on to ropes to climb up the hills. We will be going through about 1km of mossy forest and along the way, we can witness about 6 species of the nepenthes plants. If we are lucky, we can spot the hornbill and some other wildlife creatures. Upon arrival at the camp site, you will set up your tent or hammock and rest. Later that night, I will be teaching you some basic jungle survival skills.

Hi, I am Lait Lakong, or popularly known as 'Mataga'. I am from the local Lundayeh ethnic who lives in a mountain area of Long Pasia. I wish to share the beautiful sights of my hometown, to all nature and adventure lovers who are interested to explore the beautiful mountain scenes of Long Pasia. 

I obtained my guide license from the Borneo Tourism Institute (BTI) and I have become a guide since 2005. I am also involved in voluntary work with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). 

I love music and arts, and I can play several music instruments like the guitar, ukelele and piano. Apart from these, my interests include drawing and painting, and I have been involved in several NGO-related exhibitions in Penang, Perak, Melaka and Kuala Lumpur. 

My love and passion towards nature has led me to do what I am doing today. I am eager to show you what my beautiful hometown has to offer, and I am certain that you will have a fantastic time learning and appreciating the local culture with the people of Long Pasia.
