MOUNT KINABALU
The Kinabalu Park - Malaysia's first World Heritage was designated by UNESCO in December 2000 'for its universal values' and vital biological sites. Covering an area of 754 sq km, the focal point of the Park is of course the majestic Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain between Northern Burma and New Guinea.

The Kinabalu Park also houses numerous unique plants such as the pitcher plant, about 1000 orchid species and the largest flower in the world, Rafflesia. More than 250 bird species have also been recorded in the Park, namely the Mountain Bush Warbler, Kinabalu Friendsly Warbler, Palceface Bibul and the Mountain Blackeyes. In a nutshell, the Kinabalu Park is one of the world's most unique ecological systems with an altitude between 152 metres to 3,952 metres above sea level: having beauty, splendour and charm to delight any category of visitors, from the tired businessman in need of a rest to nature lovers.

Standing at 4,095.2 metres high, the name Kinabalu is derived from the Kadazandusun words aki and nabalu,where aki literally means 'ancestor' and 'nabalu' is the Kadazandusun word for 'mountain'. The local Kadazandusun believed their spirits dwell on the mountaintop and as such the mountain remains sacred to them. The imposing Mount Kinabalu led to the renaming of the state's capital from Kinabalu Fort to Kota Kinabalu in 1964.
