Tour Code: BT001 Duration: 6 hours Price: RM130.00 per person Minimum Person: 2

The Klias River is situated in the Klias Peninsula which is a secondary forest reserve. It is cared for by Sabah State Forestry Department and is 20 minutes away from the Tempurung Seaside Lodge. This forest reserve is home to large concentration of the fame Proboscis monkeys. With its bulging pot belly and long pendulum nose, the proboscis monkeys have long been a symbol of the Klias Wetland. It is one of the world’s most unusual primates and found only in the coastal areas of Borneo.

Other primates such as the silver leaf monkeys are also found. The silver leaf monkeys also fall under the coastal and riverine primates. A distinctive feature of the very agile silver leaf monkey is its tuft hair on top of its head which can easily distinguish itself from the naughty and playful macaque. Of course, the macaques are also found in abundance here as well.

Other forms of wildlife found here are crocodiles, monitor lizards, varieties of coastal and riverine birds, civets, Buffy fish owl, fruit bats, otters though very rare, snakes and occasionally wild boar.
