Kinabalu Park Sabah Malaysia

Kinabalu Park Sabah Malaysia.

The Kinabalu Park Sabah Malaysia covers an area of 754 sq km and is made up of Mount Kinabalu, Mount Tambayukon and the foothills.

Kinabalu Park Sabah Malaysia was gazetted to preserve this valuable natural environment.

The mountains have a fascinating geological history, taking 'just' a million years to form.

The mighty Mount Kinabalu is actually a granite massif that was later thrust upwards through the crust of the surface.

Subsequent erosion removed thousands of feet of the overlying sand and mud stone, exposing this massif.

During the Ice Age, glaciers running across the summit smoothed it out, but the jagged peaks that stood out above the ice surface remained unaffected, retaining the extremely ragged surfaces.

This rugged mountain is the focal point of the National Park.

If you plan to climb the mountain, be sure to bring a head torch for the early morning climb to the summit which starts in utter darkness and cold weather gear.

The summit temperatures have been known to dip to below freezing!
