Mount Kinabalu also known as “Aki-nabalu” given by the local Kadazandusuns is Malaysia’s highest mountain standing mightily at 4,095 meters above sea level. It is protected by UNESCO for its surrounding the world’s most important biological sites. There are between 5000 to 6000 species of plants, 326 species of birds and more than 100 mammalian species identified along climbing the mountain in different altitude.
