Itinerary Lahad Datu Mount Silam Ride

Duration: about 3h

Transfer from Bike and Tours B&B to Lahad Datu’s Tower of Heaven in Mount Silam.

Arrival at the Telecommunication Tower 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 ride.

Let the ride begin. Hop on the saddle and enjoy a lovely ride meandering down the Silam Mountain. This is an easy, relaxing 10km ride on sealed road with just a few uphill. Remember this is a leisure ride and NOT a race on who could reach the bottom first! The Silam Mountain is populated with different species of flora and fauna. If you take time to enjoy the ride and appreciate the surrounding you might be able to sight some mammals such as the bearded wild boar, slow loris, Bornean Gibbons, the mischievous macaques or simply cycling next to the pitcher plants.

Upon reaching the bottom of the Mount Silam, our team will transfer you back to Lahad Datu.
