SIC Departure: Daily EX - KOTA KINABALU
Minimum: 02 paxs


Rising majestically at 4,101m is Mount Kinabalu, the tallest mountain on the island of Borneo. The locals believe that spirits of their ancestors can be found on the top of the mountain and therefore consider it sacred. In days gone by, a chicken was sacrificed at the peak after every climb to honour their ancestors. However, as tradition slowly fades away, the ceremony now occurs once a year when only seven chickens are sacrificed to appease the spirits.

The mountain and its surroundings are among the most important biological sites in the world and well known worldwide for its botanical and biological species biodiversity. Some of these are endemic and therefore found no where else in the world. To date, 326 species of birds, and 100 mammalian species have been identified. Among the more unusual species are the gigantic rafflesia plants and the orang utan. The area has also been identified as having the world’s richest orchid flora with over 800 species, over 600 species of ferns (more than the whole of Africa’s 500 species) of which 50 are found no where else. It is also the richest place in the world for the nepenthes insectivorous pitcher plants (five of the thirteen here are found nowhere else on earth). These reach spectacular proportions (the largest in the world being the endemic Nepenthes Rajah).  It is not surprising that in 2000 Mount Kinabalu was the first site in the country to be gazetted a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Annually, thousands of tourists flock to Kinabalu National Park not just to appreciate the amazing flora and fauna but also to climb Mount Kinabalu. Fortunately, Mount Kinabalu is known to be one of the most accessible mountains in the world. Despite the height, climbing to the main peak of Mount Kinabalu does not require any special equipment although climbers need to be reasonably fit.
