Mount Kinabalu (Gunung Kinabalu) is located in the East Malaysian state of Sabah. At 4,095m, it is the tallest peak in Borneo’s Crocker Range and the fourth tallest mountain in the Malay Archipelago. By topographic prominence, Mount Kinabalu is the 20th tallest mountain in the world.
It can be climbed rather easily by anybody in good physical condition. There is no need for mountaineering equipment at any point on the main route.
