Danum Valley - Malaysia

Danum Valley is found in Malaysian Borneo and has some unusual plant and animal residents. The biggest flower in the world, rafflesia along with other Carnivorous pitcher plants flowers (some weighing more than 15 pounds) gives this valley a truly exotic, almost primeval, feel. Flying squirrels, gibbons, Asian elephants and rare jungle rhinos all call the conservation area home. One of Southeast Asia's first true eco-resorts, the Borneo Rainforest Lodge, still operates in the valley, offering guests an upscale place to stay in between jungle treks, canopy tours and river adventures.
