Mount Kinabalu Sabah, Malaysia 54.9 km away
#3 of 92 Nature & Parks in Sabah
The incremental change in vegetation as you climb from Park HQ (1800m) to Laban Rata (3200m) in one day is incredible and definitely kept the camera memory cards full!
I definitely recommend staying the first night at Mt Kinabalu Park HQ near Timphoon Gate, it helps your acclimatise and means you can sleep in on the day you start hiking instead of travelling from KK town.

Exciting boat ride, beautiful beaches, and an opportunity to snorkel, although the park -- rightfully -- protects the delicate corals by limiting the crowds of tourists from reaching them.
