  • It need a bit of detour when you reach Tamparuli town as this bridge is located at the old part of the town and when the new and bigger bridge was constructed, this has been the back passage. The view...  more »
  • It's one of those shaky suspension bridges meant only for pedestrians. Nice photo opps. Clean river flowing beneath gives a peaceful, easy feeling. Yeah, like the Eagles song! I wouldn't go out of the...  more »

  • If you have the time for a small detour, the Tamparuli Suspension Bridge makes an interesting pitstop for the journey to Kinabalu Park from Kota Kinabalu. We were surprised that the pedestrian bridge was actually very much higher than the road level. As such, there is a good view of Tamparuli town, the surrounding area and the fast-flowing Kiulu river from the bridge. The bridge is pretty sturdy, though you will need to watch your step as there are some places where the wood planks are broken. If you drive, it is best to park near the market and walk over to the bridge.
  • The most famous landmark in Tamparuli is a long hanging bridge which is immortalised in the song Jambatan Tamparuli, a popular Kadazandusun song. Another bridge, built for motor traffic, spans the river far below the hanging bridge and is frequently flooded during heavy rain. Tamparuli is located just off the Kota Kinabalu- Sandakan road, making it a popular stop for a snack or meal for travellers taking this route from the direction of Kota Kinabalu. The town is also a convenient stop en route to the town of Kiulu, a popular whitewater raftingdestination for domestic and foreign tourists alike.
  • Just like other suspension bridge, famous because of marsha londoh’s home town
  • Try to br tre on wednesday....tamu...we call it...
  • Great view. Small town nearby where people can buy fresh vegetable from the wet market.
