From Agathis Camp, begin the 7km trekking through the rainforest to reach the Nepenthes Camp (Also known as Camel Trophy Camp).
Nepenthes Camp is a two-storey building complete with bunk beds, showers and solar electricity, which can accommodate up to 15 visitors. Constructed by the participants of Camel Trophy in 1993, it was the first permanent camp within the Basin and is located strategically at the meeting point of lower montane forest and the rare and unusual montane heath forest on Maliau’s southern plateau. A 33m high observation platform near the top of a large Agathis borneensis tree provides an opportunity to observe birds at close range and allows breathtaking views of the surrounding forest canopy. The beautiful Takob Akob and Giluk Falls are within 2 hours walk.
The trek from Agathis Camp to Nephenthes Camp will take about 6 hours of trekking over the rim of the Basin. The first two hours is the most challenging uphill trek for this adventure. Stop for packed lunch and relax enjoying the surrounding rich vegetation.
