Location : Gemok Hill Forest Reserve, Tawau Division, Sabah, Malaysia.

Gemok Hill Forest Reserve is situated 10km from Tawau town. This forest reserve has a canopy walkway – Titian Selara. At 231 metres long, it is deemed one of the longest canopy walkways in Sabah

If you have been indulging in the seafood restaurants in Tawau and feeling guilty, Bukit Gemok is one place you can burn a few calories. The canopy walk here got us baited. It is situated less than 30min drive away along the Kalabakan road. Paid RM5/pax for the entrance.

So innocently, we headed for the trail head with expectations of catching flying hornbills at the canopy.Gemok Hill Forest Reserve, jungle trekking, hiking, conservation, exploration, Hutan simpan, canopy bridge, Malaysia, Sabah, Tourism, travel guide, Borneo,

The trail was quite easy without much elevation and with 7 gazebos to rest our legs. adventure, nature, outdoor, primary jungle, trekking, conservation, Hutan simpan, Titian Silara, Malaysia, tourist attraction, travel guide, Trans Borneo, 婆罗洲游踪,马来西亚沙巴, 斗湖森林保护区

Except for little insects on the jungle floor there was no sign of any wild life, not even hornbills.  Nothing compared to the nearby Tawau Hills Park where hornbills were frequently seen or heard. Pusat Sejadi Bukit Gemok, rainforest, nature, primary jungle, trekking, hiking, Hutan simpan, Malaysia, Tourism, tourist attraction, travel guide, Trans Borneo, 婆罗洲沙巴, 斗湖森林保护区
