Overview of Tour
Mahua Waterfall is a pristine natural fall that nestled deep in the tropical forest of the Crocker Mountain Range. This spectacular waterfall is approximately 17 metres tall and has a pool depth of 1.3 metres. One of the most accessible beautiful fall in Sabah, the drive up to Mahua takes an approximate 1½ hr drive from Kota Kinabalu. Visitors will pass through scenic uphill drive through small villages and forests on the Crocker Range.
The drive will end at the Mahua Sub-Centre which is the park entrance. From here on, it takes an easy 15 mins walk along the river to reach the waterfall.
A highlight in itself, this walk will delight any nature enthusiast with the sight of endless towering Seraya trees with huge trunks, giant bamboo trees and birds-nest ferns while endlessly entertained by the chorus of insects and forests birds.
About 120 Meter before the waterfall, you will see a hanging bridge at your right, which leads you to a signage that reads, “Minduk Sirung Trail. Mahua ke Gn. Alab 12 KM”.Minduk Sirung Trail is a jungle trail that connects to Mount Alab (Gunung Alab) substation about 12 KM away, another park in Crocker Range.
The Crocker Range National Park covers the north-south Crocker Range, of 1,200-1,800 metres mountains in Sabah, east Malaysia on the island of Borneo, which separate the western coastal plain with the rest of the state. Lying 300 metres above sea level, it is spread over 1,399 kilometres making it the largest protected park in all of Sabah. The Crocker Range has been under protection as a forest reserve since 1968 but was declared as a National Park in 1984 to protect its rich biodiversity and rare species of plants and wildlife, also in part to protect the natural freshwater reserve area. Crocker Range National Park receives a rainfall of 3,000-4,000 milimetres per year, making it one of the highest precipitation areas in Sabah. The water catchments in the park provide an indispensable water source for drinking, agriculture and industrial purposes, and to sustain the daily needs of more than one third of the population of Sabah.
