It seems to be most common in November, December, February and March but can happen at any time of the year. There is also some very good trekking in the Park.

However, with incredible flora and fauna, stunning rock formations, unbelievable panoramic views, and ample shelters to make carrying a tent with you quite unnecessary if you hike from Ba’kelalan, this is one of the finest hikes in Borneo, if not the entire Malay archipelago.
