Ariffin said the 4M challenge is an indigenous, adventurous and thrilling eco-sports tourism event of survival skills, teamwork and traditional sports.
The 4M are four disciplines that participants have to go through in the event.

The objectives are to create a “love nature” culture, to enhance indigenous eco-sports tourism, to popularise Kiulu as a prime tourist destination in Sabah, and to create opportunities for active native and local participation in the tourism industry.
Since it was launched on Dec 6, 1998 – but only officially recognised as a state tourism event in 2000 in conjunction with the Visit Sabah Year 2000 and also one of the highlights in the Visit Malaysia Year – the Kiulu 4M Challenge had made great impacts and contributed vastly in the local tourism industry, Ariffin said.
He said it made Kiulu popular as a tourist destination for white water rafting and increased river conservation awareness, notably the revival of the bombon/tagal system (river fish breeding conservation/fishing prohibition) along Kiulu rivers.
