KOTA KINABALU: Sabah wants to develop nature-based healing at the Crocker Range Park as a tourism product.
Its Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, Datuk Jafry Ariffin said the unspoiled park which is rich with flora and fauna can provide a positive impact to those seeking to release their stress.
“Nature-based healing is not a remedy, but visitors can experience a sense of calmness to benefit their emotion and mental health,” said Jafry after a briefing session given by Sabah Parks.
He said nature-based healing will allow visitors to immerse with the environment.
He explained the nature-based healing is part of the tourism ministry efforts to continue to identify places with tourism values.
