At Long Pasia is the convergence point of two rivers, the Sungei Matang and the Sungei Sia. They combine to form the source of the Padas River, the Ulu Padas, which is also the biggest river in the west coast of Sabah, Malaysia. About 5 hours trekking is Gunung Muruk Miau, at 6834 feet, it is the highest peak at the boarder. The Giant Rock Table, the group of giant Agathis trees, the Crocodile Mount and the Serpent Mount were ancient monuments where people celebrated their victory in tribal battle. All these are within the reach of one or two day jungle trekking and camping activity. Long Pasia has very good homestay programme with abount 20 participating homes. Over the years, many nature lovers have visited this area and utilised the homestay. The people are deeply religious and belong to the SIB church (Sidang Injil Borneo), formerly known as the Borneo Evangelical Mission.
