Kinabalu National Park hugs Mount Kinabalu’s feet like a lush, thick blanket. Sharing with the extraordinary biodiversity and status of the UNESCO World Heritage as a mountain towering above it, Kinabalu National Park is recognized as one of the most important biological sites in the world.
Located in the state of Sabah, Eastern Malaysia, Mount Kinabalu – at 13,435ft (4,095m) above sea level – is the 4th highest mountain in the Malay Archipelago, attracting travelers around the world to climb its slopes to find the perfect sunrise.
And for those who cannot imagine climbing the challenging slopes of Mount Kinabalu, Kinabalu National Park presents a very good alternative. Home to around 5,500 plant species, including several hundred orchid varieties and seminal plants, 326 species of birds, and more than 100 mammals, walking in the park has never been this diverse.
There are 11 km (7 miles) of marked and graded trails across the National Park, many of which cut across mountain forest vegetation, which range from rich dipterocarp and coniferous forests to mountain oaks and alpine grasslands.
