About Kinabalu National Park
Established as one of Malaysia's first national parks and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kinabalu National Park is a significant biological site home to a vast number of plant, bird and animal species. Thanks to the jagged peak of Mount Kinabalu - the highest on the island of Borneo that sits at the heart of the park - and the opportunity it offers for mountain hiking and summit-conquering, Kinabalu National Park is one of Sabah's most popular destinations. Looming large above the coastal plain, Mt. Kinabalu measures 4,096 metres above sea level with a climbing route that is best completed over two days and ends on a bare granite rock that offers impressive vistas when the clouds and mists pass.Read More
Hikers also have plenty of options within the Kinabalu National Park itself with numerous trails leading through some of the 754 square kilometre area characterised by four distinct climate zones that have their own ecology ranging from tropical lowland forest to sub-alpine forest and bare scrubs the higher you get.
