Poring Hot Spring

Hot Spring Ranau

About 15-20 minutes from Ranau Town..Poring is indeed a place to go to relax..particularly for those who have just climb mount kinabalu..

You can take a bus or taxi from Ranau town or Directly from Kota Kinabalu..

The entrance is different from the Hot Spring Area and you have to walk about 2-3 minutes to get to the actual area..

Poring or Bamboo if directly translated from the local Kadazandusun Language has many bamboo plants growing around its vicinity..the moment I entered the place through a bridge...Something says to me that something awaits me..

This is the statement taken from about poring

....the hot tubs are built slightly below the actual source of the hot water. The hot water is piped (as at the source it is hot enough to hard boil eggs) and presented at the tubs along side a cold water tap. Due to reasons of hygene, the tubs are drained after each use, but they are also fairly large and thus sometimes take some time to fill. There are several other sized tubs scattered about nearby, which are not tiled and communal. Hot water flows freely through these and are always at the ready.

There are also two or three indoor tubs for private use. The better of the ones is the Raffelsia, which is quite new, spacious and nice and clean. The other tubs are fairly basic, almost like what you would find at home, but do feature two big tubs side by side. The facilities are also basic, but clean.

The other pools in the part of the facility are cold-water pools. There is a freely accessable rock pool, as well as the paid-access slide pool, which is a series of 4 cascading pools, the upper 3 of which are margined by a water-slide. The water in these pools are fed by a river and are thus constantly replenished. This part of the facility is quite popular amongst tourist and locals alike, especially during weekends and public- and school holidays.

Which is really true because during that day (a Public Holiday for Sabahan)..ALL TUBS and POOLS ARE OCCUPIED...I managed to spend a few minutes in the tubs..but its so distressing to see others waiting in line to have a taste of the Hot I just spend a little time there..Gonna be back again soon...

There are also several pools out there..but if you want to rest or relax then tubs is the best choice...there is a CANOPY WALK..and BUTTERFLY SANCTUARY if you want at extra few costs...I didn't have the chance to go there as I was busy spending my time in the cold water pool and hot tubs..

There is a Jungle Restaurant which is pretty unique and cool because most of the building materials are mainly taken from jungle and nature..
