The park also supports 289 species of birds and 290 different types of butterflies. After the walk, depart for lunch at a local restaurant.
After lunch, depart for another interesting wonder, the Poring Hot Spring. At approximately 47 kilometers from Kinabalu Park, Poring Hot Spring got its name from the tall bamboo plant that is abundant in that area.
