Summiting Mount Kinabalu via Timpohon Gate
Rising majestically above the surrounding plain, Mt. Kinabalu is a rugged, heavily eroded mountain, scarred by gullies, with jagged rocks and sharp pointed peaks fringed by pristine Montane Rainforests. At 4,095 meters or 13,435 feet above sea level, this legendary mountain is the highest in Borneo and one of the highest in South East Asia drawing trekkers for an adventure of a lifetime.
Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000 for its biological significance (with some 6,000 plants, 326 birds and more than 100 mammalian species), Mt. Kinabalu is a magnet for nature lovers.
