Kota Kinabalu, Sabah: When it comes to jungle trekking in Sabah some might imagine hours of travel to get started. Truth is, a 4 day hiking trail starts a mere 30 minutes from Kota Kinabalu.
The Salt Trail is a series of paths that connects several remote villages in the Crocker Range of mountains to the more developed coastal and interior villages of Sabah.
In yesteryear the trails were used by the villagers to reach the markets where they traded their fresh produce for salt, kerosene and other necessities.
In modern day Sabah some of these villages have been touched by development and now have road access, yet still some villages are only accessible by hours of walking on jungle paths that cross rivers and cut through dense tropical rainforest.
Last month a team of Downbelow employees set out on the Inobong to Tenom section of the Salt Trail, the only part that is officially open to the public, for a 3 night adventure that spans 35km and involves 8 hours of walking per day.
We now take eager jungle trekking groups on this trail, but be warned: the Salt Trail is proper jungle trekking and is recommended only for serious nature lovers keen on an multi-day jungle trekking experience.
