I got another chance of scaling this mountain on 28th August 2018. To say this mountain is the highest in South East Asia will attract arguments so I will just say that it’s the highest mountain in Malaysia. I have climbed this mountain four times previously, all were before the 5th June 2015 Sabah earthquake incident that took away 18 lives from Mount Kinabalu. This climb would be something new to me because new trails were created as diversion to previous damaged trails due to the earthquake.
If panoramic view of the city of Kota Kinabalu and Mount Kinabalu is what you are looking for, why not head over to Kokol Hill? It’s a hill located about 30 minutes drive away from the city centre of Kota Kinabalu and is considered the best place to be for panoramic view of Kota Kinabalu city.
This post is entirely about Kasih Sayang Health Resort located near the peak of the hill, which I happened to get a chance to experience a night stay and to write about it, basically, my review and what I think about this place.
So, you’re wondering what you are going to expect on a day tour to Kinabalu Park and it’s surrounding places of interest? Check out below video to find out!
