Explore Mount Kinabalu, a towering mountain and World Heritage Site with a tremendous ecological diversity. As Malaysia’s highest point, its summit (Low’s Peak) reaches 4,096 m (13,438 ft) above sea level. Provided you’re in good condition, you don’t need any special equipment for the accessible ascent to the top. Elsewhere on the mountain, several rock climbing sites offer challenges for experienced climbers. The protected mountain and national park that surrounds it support around 6,000 species of plants, 326 species of birds, and more than 100 species of mammals, with star residents including the huge Rafflesia plants as well as the endangered orangutan. For this reason, it remains one of the world’s chief sites of interest for scientists, nature-lovers, and conservationists.
