INFORMATIONS
Poring Hot Springs is part of the vast Kinabalu National Park.

The Poring Hot springs, within the Kinabalu Park, admits the visitor into tropical lowland rainforests. Sulphur hot springs provide a therapeutic bath and marked trails lead to small waterfalls and caves. The Canopy walkway, 100 to 200 ft. above the forest floor, is an opportunity to appreciate nature up close.

It is some 13 kilometres from Ranau, or about 40 kilometres from the Kinabalu National Park Head Quarters in Kundasang. First developed by the Japanese during World War II, it is now amongst Sabah's top tourism destinations and very popular amongst foreigners and locals alike. The sulphuric, hot waters of the spring are piped into open-air Japanese-style baths, where you can rest your tired limbs after the climb of Mt Kinabalu.

Features of the area include the:

* Butterfly farm

Here you will find several species of colourful and striking butterflies, Borneo's first butterfly farm features a garden, nursery and hatchery for the purpose of research, education and the conservation of endangered species.

* Poring Orchid Conservation Centre

With 1,200 species of orchids found with Kinabalu Park, the centre has the largest collection of Sabah's endemic orchids.

* Kipungit Waterfall

Kipungit Waterfall is a 30 minute walk from Poring Hot Springs. Signboards and a well-marked path through the forest will lead you to your destination. The waterfall is smaller than the Laganan Waterfall, which is a 90 minute walk from Poring Hot Springs. With its shady canopy and beautiful rocks, the area is private, peaceful and a great place to spend a lazy afternoon with family and friends.

* Tropical Garden

Mousedeer and other deer are exhibited with colourful birds in the aviary.

* Poring Canopy Walkway

Visitors can stroll amidst the canopy of the Menggaris tree - the King of the Forest. The Walkway is 157.8m long and 41m high.
