Mount Kinabalu (Malay: Gunung Kinabalu) is a mountain in Sabah, Malaysia. It is protected as Kinabalu Park, a World Heritage Site. Kinabalu is the highest peak in Sabah standing at 4095.2 metres above the sea level and the highest mountain in Malaysia. Mount Kinabalu is also the 20th most prominent mountain in the world by topographic prominence. Reaching the peak was my life time dream and it came through on 30th March 2017. Thank god for the good wheather.
Adventure hike to Gunung Bunga Buah, Genting Highland. Gunung Bunga Buah stands high at 1430m, but is different from other mountains like Nuang in that you start at relatively high altitude. The trail consists of many ups and downs rather than a single ascent to the summit and back. The great thing about this is that the whole climb is done in nice cool weather. Since its rainy season leeches came out in large numbers after the rain, we saw a lot around and most of us got more than one bite. Needless to say, go mentally prepared for these bloodsuckers!
