Maliau Basin or also Maliau Basin Conservation Area, is a region in Sabah, Malaysia, which represents a geological catchment surrounding the Maliau River. Located around the center of Sabah in the Sandakan Division, it was designated as a conservation area by the Sabah Foundation in 1981. Later in 1997 the Sabah State Assembly gazetted the Basin as a Protection Forest Reserve with a total area of 588 square kilometres. The region also features Mount Lotung, Maliau Falls, and Lake Linumunsut. Efforts are underway to nominate the area as a World Heritage Site. In 2011, the Maliau Basin Studies Centre opened, a large field centre to serve as a basis for studies and teaching carried out in Maliau by naturalists, biologists, and groups of field course students .

    The prices are extremly high! One Day will cost u If booking right at the antrance around 400 ringt. U have to book in advance and it is Not possible to Do Camping in the Park. Everything you want to Do will cost extra. That is because the parc is half private and is more Run like a buissnes... The staff Team is Very friendly though. They speak good english and help u as Best as they can.
