[Activities] Lobou Lobou Trail, Kampung Natai, Telipok

I stumbled upon this when browsing around Facebook pages.

Got my friend, Mag to arrange it.

A newly opened trail at Kg. Natai, Telipok near Kokol.  This trail is handled by Natai Eco Tourism and brings hikers along a 7km loop trail with river crossing, waterfalls and caves, over 800m elevation a.s.l.

I roughly know where Kg. Natai is since me and my running buddies will pass through this junction before running down to Kg. Tombongon for our 21km Kokol Hill training loop.

Price subject to change, please check with Robert as per above image.
Price for hiking only is RM35 and for hiking and abseiling is RM55.

[Activities] Nulu Kebayau, Telipok

There are 5 hills at Nulu Kebayau, Telipok, it has been in operation since 2015 and has since received many visitors especially from the avid hikers.

My IG friend recommended to go there for sunsets when I inquire about the trail.  We had arranged our trip to the trail with the local guide earlier and he estimated we start around 3pm for that.  It's also nice to go for sunrise but you will need to get there earlier.  

The starting point for this hill is SK Kebayau, Telipok.  Now am not sure if, like me, the only SK Kebayau that I know of is located in Kota Belud, boy, I was wrong.  There is one in Telipok, located about 12 minutes drive from Telipok town (I will include the map as follows).
