Besides from the view of the Silam coast from the tower (on a good weather), there are also jungle trails for trekking for public. Road to the location is a bit steep and challenging so recommended to use a 4WD to go there.

It is worth travelling to the hilltop. You have an excellent view over the bay and can see Lahad Datu and the islands nearby.
