Welcome to the eastern state of Sabah
You will land in Tawau, right in the centre of this amazing state of Borneo. Once covered in towering tropical rainforest, much of the lowland forest was cleared in the 70's and 80’s for palm oil plantations, although some high-value areas were preserved as national parks and wildlife reserves, providing great places for adventure and exploration.
The western part of Sabah is generally mountainous, containing the three highest mountains in Malaysia. At a height of 4095m, Mount Kinabalu is the tallest of the lot and sits within the Kinabalu National Park - named a World Heritage Site in 2000 because of its richness in plant diversity combined with its unique geological, topographical, and climatic conditions. Definitely one to visit.
