The following pic I took myself on 13 June 2013, 11.09am, from Penampang, with a cameraphone.

On 20th June 2012, GarScott Methodius shared a photo of Mount Kinabalu with a rarely seen, amazing cloud around the peak, as rare as finding dried lavender bunches being sold at the Kundasang market.
The cloud looks like the traditional Kadazan/Dusun “sirung” (headgear) being “worn” by the mountain.
Apparently the cloud is called an orographic cloud, dangerous to planes.
He mentioned that the photo was taken at dawn by one “Twopuk Roland” in Kundasang, Ranau.
