Sabah's Lost World, Maliau Basin Tawau Reviews
The Mystical Maliau Basin Jan 12, 2011
Maliau’s Murut name for the basin means “Land of the Giant Staircase” derived from its step-like landscape and countless waterfalls – 19 falls and still counting..
It contains many outstanding natural features, including probably the greatest number of waterfalls anywhere in Malaysia.
Maliau Falls, with its seven tiers of cascading waters was breathtaking.
The most famed of these is the spectacular 7-tiered Maliau Falls on the Maliau River, the highest fall of which is a magnificent 28m.
Maliau is also the home of the fabled Lake Linumunsut.
