Sabah's east coast. The journey takes approximately 2 hours with
the first 15 kilometers being the main Lahad Datu-Tawau road. The
rest of the ride is on an unsealed but well maintained private logging

Bordered by the Segama and Danum Rivers, Danum Rivers, Danum Valley
is a rugged terrain of gently sloping inclines with elevation less
than 760 meters in most places, descending into level riverine habitats.
Three summits in the interior of Danum, the highest reaching 1,093
meters, give way to a rolling plateau on the western side and form
the headwaters of the Segama River which traverses through a comtinuous
series of gorges, of which only a couple are accessible by foot.
