Kinabalu National Park

Kinabalu National Park or Taman Negara Kinabalu in Malay, established as one of the first national parks of Malaysia in 1964, is Malaysia's first World Heritage Site designated by UNESCO in December 2000 for its "outstanding universal values" and the role as one of the most important biological sites in the world.

Located at west coast of Sabah, east Malaysia on the island of Borneo; it covers an area of 754 square kilometers surrounding the majestic Mount Kinabalu which at 4,095.2 metres, is the highest mountain in south-east Asia. ref - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinabalu_Park

We, unfortunately time -permitting were not able to climb Mount Kinabalu as I had orignally intended to do, it usually takes 2 nights to scale the summit and back again. We instead visited the National Park at the base of the mountain - it was good but not what I had anticipated. I am coming back to do this  ( along with diving in Sipadan). It helps that maybe all travellers have the same interest also!
