Bundu Tuhan Retreat Centre is situated at the foot of Mount Kinabalu, 1200 metres above sea level and 85 km from Kota Kinabalu City. The cool and peaceful atmosphere of Bundu Tuhan (“Valley of God”) makes the retreat centre an ideal place for retreats and recollections. The Bundu Tuhan Catholic Mission started in 1955 under the Mill Hill Missionaries. Aside from the retreat centre, there is also a school (Don Bosco Primary School), an orphanage (Don Bosco Orphanage), a church (St Pius X), a convent (Mount La Verna Convent), and a chapel (attached to the Priest’s House).
