“Peace and tranquility in the jungle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I can highly recommend Utan Paradise as a place to stay. Not only is it a short trip from KK it is situated on the edge of the Crocker Range NP. If your up for it you can disembark on treks into the forest from 1 night to 2 week long trips. Otherwise just relax around base camp enjoying the sounds of nature and take short day walks into the forest and enjoy the small streams and waterfalls. Inus, the owner, grew up living off the jungle and is a wealth of knowledge for survival in the jungle. His knowledge, unfortunately, will probably all but disappear as Sabah becomes more and more developed. Take the opportunity to learn from him so that his knowledge can continue to be passed on. The camp is basic but you will feel right at home. You can use the camp kitchen to cook for yourself otherwise delicious meals can be provided by Inus and his family.

Room Tip: Rooms are tents with mattresses under an 'A-frame' hut. Go for one of the thicker mattresses...
