Towards the end of the Second World War, the Japanese soldiers had matched the Australian and British Prisoners of War from Sandakan to Ranau. There were three matches leaving Sandakan to Beluran and moved toward the South Route to Telupid where the famous Sandakan Death March walking tour was created after the track was recovered in 2006. It was believed there was a North Route going from Beluran to Lingkabau then to Perancangan towards Ranau but none of the Japanese and Prisoners of War made it.
Today there is a highway linking from the north part of Sabah to Telupid and it is ideal for mountain biking. A 5 days 4 night North Borneo Mountain Biking tour package is created leaving from Sandakan (Kg Dusun) mountain biking to Beluran for the first night stay in a local motel, then towards the north and camping for 2 nights along the way, ending for with a comfortably night stay in the Kudat Golf and Marina Resort. The whole cycling distance is about 200KM.
