Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in South-east Asia at 4,101 metres, and offers a unique climb from tropical luxuriance through oak forest to the rocky sub-alpine summit plateau. One of the biggest attractions of Kinabalu is the range of exotic plants – such as the pitcher plant. As one ascends the mountain the climate changes and so do the plants. Bamboo, mosses, orchids, rotans, lichens and pitcher plants are in abundance. The insect life is also very impressive and an immensely rich variety of bird and animal species are encountered. The following morning the arrival of daylight reveals the remarkable summit plateau of the mountain, a vast expanse of smooth rock with a unusual assortment of rocky pinnacles rising from below. It’s truly a unique experience.
