Tenom is a town in Sabah's Interior Division, located off the west coast about 200km south from KK City. A stronghold of the Murut people, one of Borneo's largest native groups associated with strong head-hunting history, Tenom is also famed for its agricultural products including vegetables, durians, mangosteen, avocado, lime and coffee planted in the fertile countryside.
The town is also a gateway by train to Pangi Station for Class III-IV whitewater rafting along Padas River that ends at Beaufort. Rafflesia flowers are even known from the surrounding wilderness, but find little promotion. Tourist attractions in the vicinity include Sabah Agriculture Park and Murut Cultural Center.
