The Kinabatangan River (Sungai Kinabatangan) is the second longest river in Malaysia - 560 kilometers from its headwaters in the mountains to Sulu Sea at the east.

We spent our two days Hari Raya holidays in Sukau. (10th-11th September 2010)

Tourist come here for its remarkable wildlife and fascinating habitats such as limestone caves at Gomantong hill, dryland dipterocarp forests, riverine forest, freshwater swamp forest, oxbow lakes and salty mangrove near the coast.
