"Adrenaline Frizzling"

It takes 5-6 hour drive from KK to Telupid town is on paved road, the rest on gravel & muddy road, which can be steep and muddy and only accessible by 4-Wheel Drive (4WD), some loves this and call this an adventure. The most famous attraction of Imbak Canyon is the Imbak Waterfall. Imbak Waterfall is only 10 KM away from Tampoi Camp, but it took us more than an hour to get there, due to the steep and slippery road. Imbak Waterall is the most popular attraction of Imbak Canyon, but the real gem is the virgin forest and the area is a sanctuary for a wide range of wildlife. The other attraction is the Mt. Kuli and Kuli Waterfalls also  known as the Maya falls and this place has just been discovered.
