Nice place, not too far from Kota Kinabalu town and suitable for family trip. But, for children make sure there have control and eye for them. Just go for wash and nice waterfall. Come visit here...

We got a bus from KK to Inanam, (number 4A) from outside the Shagri La Hotel for RM 1.50. The bus was awesome, with music and brilliant vibes. From Inanam we got a minivan to the waterfall itself for RM 4 per person. To enter the waterfall was RM 1.50 and was very worthwhile, we swam in many pools and... More

Actually, this place is hard to find because DBKK did not build any sign board as a guide for you to go to the waterfall. You need to rely on local guide or a friend which is already been there. Going to Kiansom takes 15-30 minutes drive from Kota Kinabalu city center, depending on traffic and weather condition. The best... More

Turning right along the Tuaran Road at the roundabout into the Kiansom Road, I drove on until the road ended at a parking lot. Only then I realised that it was the site of a waterfall. The waterfall is not visible from the parking... More

My friends and I went to Kiansom in the afternoon. We drove to get there so not sure how the public transport would work but try asking the sabah tourism board. We went on a week day hence we had the waterfalls to ourselves from 2pm to 4 pm. There are many pools in Kiansom waterfalls. The most magnificent view... More

Kiansom waterfall is about 30-45 minutes' drive from Kota KInabalu. Entrance fee is RM1 (maybe more now). We get access to toilet and a (filthy) resting place. Waterfall is beautiful but unfortunately thoughtless people have dumped rubbish in it and the "management" didn't make much effort to keep the place clean.
