  • To Charter a taxi can be seen from near the Summit of Mount Kinabalu, called by the 2 hours went over to a Management Office, the starting point for mountain climbing and trekking. In bad weather the Summit in the clouds, this season is useless. I think more likely that errand in weather far more seasonal conditions should be a tourist destination. Rising up pretty high, so the temperature is cool, did make a good impression on this point only. Along the way lots of Durian was sold at street stalls.

  • Joined the tour and go. I think Mt. Kinabalu looks best from a naval village than go too near. Because of pine cut pine (RM2 was) purchased to snack on. Sweet and delicious! You can trail within the park so feel free to enjoy the nature of Borneo. I think quite muddy so comfortable non-slip shoes. Rare plants not notice just by walking on their own and guides still have a lot of bugs, so's I can enjoy with us.
