Tawau Hill Park 14 March 2011
Tawau has very tall trees due to its basalt soil and the tallest tropical tree in the world can be seen at Tawau Hill Parrk.
You can easily hail a cab by the road side. All taxis run without meter. You need to agree with the fare beforehand. Our taxi driver, Remy can be contacted at 019 869 1405. A taxi ride from TWU town to the park costs RM35 for a 30 minutes ride.
The operator only charged us RM6 for 2 adults.
There are lots of places to recce.
En observing a group of muslim praying. They were here on a school camp.
Cross the bridge which is next to a huge dipterocarp tree. After the bridge, you can see signage to the tallest tree.
It rained and we have to take shelter under the shade. By listening to the raindrop and river gushing sound, Hui fell asleep, soooo comfortable. On the other hand, I felt bit scared looking at the dense forest.
Dad spotted an insect with its proboscis in action !
