Poring,一个位于Ranau县,Kinabalu国家公园东南方40公里外的小镇。Poring在卡达山杜迅族语里是竹子的意思,以生长在这一带的一种巨型竹子为名。Poring镇是因为她的天然温泉而闻名,是Sabah州里数一数二最著名的旅游胜地。这里最先是由日本人在第二世界大战时开发。抵达Poring最好的方法还是自驾,或是乘坐德士。

 

Poring is a small town located 40 km south-east of the Kinabalu National Park Headquarters, in the district of Ranau. The name Poring came from a Kadazandusun word for a species of giant bamboo grows abundantly in the area. Tourist can hire taxi from Kota Kinabalu or Mount Kota Kinabalu Park to the Poring Hot Spring.

 

Poring is known for its hot springs and the popular recreation and tourist complex is known as Poring Hot Springs. First developed by the Japanese during World War II, it is now amongst Sabah’s top tourism destinations and very popular amongst foreigners and locals.

从Kinabalu山上下来后,大多数登山者都会来到Poring温泉松懈疲惫的筋骨,好好的泡一泡温泉。据说这带硫磺的温泉水拥有医疗的作用,可治疗疼酸的筋骨。这些热腾腾的泉水都被灌进数个水池里供大众浸泡。以前日本人的木制建设已被替换。

 

The springs are known for their therapeutic properties and the waters with their sulphuric minerals are reputed to ease aching muscles. Hikers usually will stay 1 day at Poring hot Spring to relax their tired muscle after challenge the Mount Kota Kinabalu. The steamy sulphur water is channeled into several open air tiled pools and tubs from this point. These have replaced the wooden ones installed by the Japanese during wartime occupation.

Poring温泉区除了该有的温泉景点外,这里也有两座瀑布, 就是Kipungit瀑布和Langanan瀑布。要到达Kipungit瀑布并不难,离Poring温泉停车场只有665m。大家只需走一小段的泥路就可抵达。除了可泡温泉外,也让游客一尝泡冷水澡的乐趣。

 

Beside the hot spring and other attractions in the park, there are 2 waterfalls within the park for those still feel not enough trekking : Kipungit Fall and Langanan Fall.

Kipungit在Dusun族语里是蝙蝠。这瀑布取名为Kipungit是因为在离瀑布步行15分钟处有个蝙蝠洞,那披不是Kipungit瀑布= 蝙蝠瀑布。。。哈哈。

 

Kipungit fall is nice place for family picnic and accessible to all age group. The stream water is clear and cold. Local call the watefall as Kipungit Waterfall because there's a bat cave about 15 mins walking journey from the fall. Kipungit means 'bat' in Dusun language.

Kipungit瀑布不属于那类让人叹为观止的瀑布,但已可让游客尽享一泡冷水的乐趣。


Kipungit Fall is not that spectacular, but visitors are enjoying the icy cold water and fresh air here.
