KENINGAU : General Info & Tourist Attraction

 
 

KENINGAU

DISTRICT

 

This sprawling timber and agricultural town, which is named after a Javanese cinnamon tree, is located in the Interior Division of Sabah. The Keningau district is situated in a valley surrounded by the Crocker Range to the west and the Trus Madi Range to the east and south sides. For nature lovers and adventure seekers, Keningau is the place to be. Hike your way up Mount Trus Madi - the second highest peak in Malaysia after Mount Kinabalu or get your camping gear ready and rough it at the Crocker Range Park.

 
 

TAMU KENINGAU

 

The district of Keningau is located 131km from Kota Kinabalu. Famous for its handwoven goods, the district of Keningau was once the main producer of cinnamon. There are two ?tamu' or markets that take place in Keningau. The first tamu is held in Bingkor on Thursdays and the other tamu in ?Pekan' Keningau (the town's centre) on Sundays. It is a great place to see traders displaying and selling their goods, from fresh produce to a variety of handicrafts. Look for their great range of handwoven baskets and trays, a product of the industrious Kadazandusun people.

 

Opening Hours

Held on Thursdays (Bingkor) and Sundays (Pekan Keningau). Opening hours Most ?tamu' operate as early as 6:00am and close by 2:00pm

 

Getting There
