Duration: 3 Days / 2 Nights
Day 1; Mount Silam, Taliwas, Danum Valley Field Center (L/D)
Transfer from Bike and Tours B&B to Lahad Datu’s Tower of Heaven in Mount Silam which rises 30m high. While you go up the tower to appreciate the scenic view of the Darvel Bay, our team will get the bicycles ready for your 10km downhill on a sealed road.
Briefing on the “do”s and “don’t”s whilst cycling in Danum Valley. It is time to hit the pedals. The first few kilometers, you and your mate/partner will enjoy weaving down the snaky terrain. Take pleasure of the breeze in the rainforest while you get a doze of adrenaline fix! The route will then lead towards a small village before entering the tropical rainforest in the Danum Valley. You will be sheltered with the green shades of both primary and secondary rainforest. Total cycling distance is about 30km. We will make a few stops for snacks and drinks.
Arrival at Taliwas. Taliwas is classified first class forest reserve in the Danum Valley Conservation Area blessed with a lovely clear river and waterfall. After all the pedaling and sweating, just chill and soak in the beauty of Taliwas or simply jump in the river while waiting for freshly cooked lunch to be served.
