Luanti Fish Village

'Tagal' Sungai Moroli, Kampung Luanti - Fish Massage Ranau.

Luanti Fish Village is Located 22km from Ranau Town. Beside this place is the main entrance to Sabah Tea Garden, which you guys can visit after you finish with this fish village. Do take a picture and please come again soon.

Kampung Luanti, Ranau located about 131 kilometers from Kota Kinabalu (2 hours and 40 minutes drive away); this fish massage ‘spa’ is managed by the Kampung Luanti JKK and lead by Mr. Jeffrin Majangki.

In the Local Kadazandusun dialect, ‘tagal’ means ‘no fishing’, and the main purpose of the ‘tagal’ is to preserve the environment as well as the ecosystem to benefit the future generation. ‘Ikan Pelian’ or Malaysian Mahseer comes from the family of Cyprinidae. These fishes are specifically trained by the villagers to perform the healing massage activities.

The fish massage is deemed to have a curative effect on those who suffers from psoriasis. Come to Kampung Luanti for regular fish massages and you will enjoy smoother and suppler skin - just like a baby’s bottom.

If the idea of fishes nibbling off your dead skin doesn’t thrill you, try other activities such as jungle trekking and camping. Should you intend to stay longer, Kampung Luanti is also equipped with a homestay programme to make visitors feel at home every time.

Beautiful scenery at the Luanti Fish Village. The fish is following each other and this fish is really friendly to the tourist as long as they feed the fish.
