After playing with goats and cows at the Desa Cattle Dairy Farm, Kundasang, we visited the Kinabalu Park nearby. The weather here is still cold like Genting Highlands so keep wearing your jacket. This park is the entry point and also the ending point for climbing the mighty Mount Kinabalu which has the height of 4,101 meters. But we are not here to climb the Mount K. Kinabalu Park is actually one of the first national parks in Malaysia and it is very important biological sites with many species of flora and fauna.
Here is a short video of our climbing in the Kinabalu Park:
The entry to the Kinabalu Park. Selamat Mendaki, translated as Have a safe climbing.
Some rules for you to follow when you are in the park. And also you can see the records for the Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon, which is a race up going half way up Mt. Kinabalu and then down to Mesilau Nature Resort before ending at Kundasang town.
Here is a closer look on the rules. Please do not pluck any flower and please do not disturb or bring back the animals, whether they are dead or alive.
Pondok Timpohon, translated as Timpohon Hut for you to rest if tired.
Can see the top of the Mount Kinabalu from here.
At Kinabalu Park, you can pay an entry fee of RM 5 to taste the starting trail of climbing the Mount Kinabalu. And here we go climbing down the long stairs.
Here is a photo of how high the stair is. After going down the long stair, a bit regret because later need to climb back up.
