Canopy Walk at Danum Valley Sabah

 
Canopy Walk at Danum Valley in Sabah is my picture of the week. This amazing canopy walk is one of the best in the world where you explore the canopy of the forest reserve in Danum, Sabah Borneo. Located within a 348 square kilometer forest reserve, getting here is no simple task as it takes about 2-3 hours from the town of Lahat Datu in east coast Sabah via four wheel drive. The forest reserve is also one of the most pristine where it caters to a vast reserve of lush tropical lowland forest rich in Sabah’s unique flora and fauna. The area has also been recognized as one of the world's most complex ecosystems catering to all kinds of flora and fauna.

To fully experience Danum Valley and the amazing canopy walk here, one must book a stay at the Borneo Rainforest Lodge which is one of the unique luxurious resorts located in the middle of the rainforest. For birdwatchers, they will surely appreciate the 300-meter-long and 27-meter-high canopy walkway which offers a peek into abundant bird life in the forest canopy here. A three level intersection makes the canopy one of the most unique in the world too.

Nice introduction David. Did you try to throw stone at the bee hive on Menggaris tree? :-D

There is also the canopy walk near Poring Hot Spring in Borneo. I did it in January and it's quite an experience!

Thanks Murphy, but no I did not even think about it...

Christine, thanks and yes, I did visit Poring about 5 years ago. But this one takes the cake!

Been there and experiencing the canopy walk myself, not recommended if you have a heart attack.

Lunaticg - Yes, not recommended for those with weak hearts or fear of heights. But overall, an amazing experience.
