#1 of 80 in Parks in Sabah
Explore Mount Kinabalu, a towering mountain and World Heritage Site with a tremendous ecological diversity. As Malaysia's highest point, its summit (Low's Peak) reaches 4,096 m (13,438 ft) above sea level. Provided you're in good condition, you don't need any special equipment for the accessible ascent to the top. Elsewhere on the mountain, several rock climbing sites offer challenges for experienced climbers. The protected mountain and national park that surrounds it support around 6,000 species of plants, 326 species of birds, and more than 100 species of mammals, with star residents including the huge Rafflesia plants as well as the endangered orangutan.

  • An experience which I gladly did! Unfortunately, the trail is not for beginners, because the trail is strenuous! But if you take the two days, will be rewarded to the Sunrise with a magnificent view! Thanks for the Guide on Joey!

  • This is a great hike and a great challenge and definitely not to be taken lightly. Prepare well and you'll have an amazing experience and a huge sense of achievement at reaching the summit. This has been on my list for over 20 years! I'm really happy that I finally got it done.. Great views all the way up and down. I met some really nice people too from many different parts of the world. Overall well worth the effort and the cost.
  • Breathtaking mountain view! Kinabalu National Park for trekking and nature lovers.
