Mount Kinabablu National Park Mar 31, 2012
I spent 3 days altogether in Mt Kinabablu Park (day trip, plus further 2 days with an overnight stay). It is possible to have a day trip there from KK (I advise to leave early as buses will leave only when full and journey takes about 2 hours, RM20 one way-unless you're a local, then you pay RM15), alternatively you can stay in one of the lodges nearby. The park has a number of trails of different grades and lengths, and if you're lucky with the weather, you can admire Mt Kinabablu itself. Entrance will set you back RM15. You will find some restaurants, toilets, gift shop, visitor information centre and botanical garden. Be prepared to get lost or walk around in circles as some of the trails are really confusingly signposted and map,which you get at the visitor centre, is not that great either. Nevertheless, if you like walking, you'll love this park, just like I did :) Don't forget to take a lot of water with you and if you're not a big fan of leeches, take light hiking boots! I walked in trekking sandals and they worked ok for me, however had to then remove some of those bloodsuckers few times ;)
I visited botanical garden (additional RM5), however in my opinion, it wasn't worth it.
Outside the park's headquarters you'll find a little local restaurant with cheap and really nice food :)
