  • Before visiting the mount Kinabalu National Park, primarily to check the weather forecast, so as not to "get himself" in the rain and mud. Better take a raincoat. If you decide to climb Mount Kinabalu, better yet wear Mountain boots and you can take the antipijavochnye socks and gloves for hiking (women and children). Climbing Mount Kinabalu is not difficult for the ordinary tourist can even without training. Every year in international competitions for Kinabalu speed, who quickly rises on Mount Kinabalu (Kinabalu National Park on the stand table with the results of the ascent of Mount Kinabalu). For Malaysians mount Kinabalu is a sacred mountain. Kinabalu National Park big surrounds mount Kinabalu. Kinabalu Park is charged 15 MR (Malaysian Ringgit). Botany enthusiasts here whole expanse! Navigation in the Park is good everywhere tracks and signs, if not to venture into the wilds of Borneo rainforest, you will not get lost. A guide will also serve as the peak of Mount Kinabalu. Kinabalu Park territory there are separate zagorozhennye territory with rare tropical plants (open access). In the Kinabalu Park grow carnivorous plants. In General, the Kinabalu Park Tour interesting, very rich tropical flora and fauna. Thanks to the tour operator in Malaysia Discovery Overland Holiday for organizing excursions to the mount Kinabalu.
