“A local attraction which began with a popular song "Jambatan Tamparuli"”

Tamparuli Suspension Bridge
Reviewed 17 June 2013 via mobile

It all began with a song by Justin Lusah describing how his high-heeled shoe fell into the river below leaving with him walking home with a pair of socks only. On a Wednesday morning, being a Tamu Day, he browsed through the local shops in search of a new pair of high-heeled shoe( a crude translation) This song remains popular to this day and those who have heard would be curious to find out how the Tamparuli Bridge look like. From information gathered, the original bridge was located downstream not far from the present one. It was destroyed by the bad flood several years ago. The existing bridge is firmer and wider to accommodate for today's demands. The bridge is for pedestrian uses only and the lower bridge meant for vehicles but with a single lane only. Although the road sign boards signifies the bridge as a tourist destination, not much is mentioned of it on the state's tourism website except describing it as the famous Jambatan Tamparuli from which one can continue uphill to Kiulu for the White Water Rafting activity upriver. If you happen to be on your way to Kinabalu Park, just drop by since it just a short distance from the main road. It's enough to end your curiosity at the same time visiting Tamparuli town.
