Top of Mt. Kinabalu, Malaysia at dawn

After waking at 2am and hiking with head lamps, we watched the sun rise from the top of Mt. Kinabalu (approx 15,000 ft), above the clouds. This was the first national park created in Malaysia and deemed a UNESCO site in 2000. Access is tightly controlled by the government to ensure preservation of the flora and fauna that exists on the mountains four climate zones. Preservation is important in Malaysia, where deforestation is negatively impacting wildlife. Malaysia is also a Muslim country whose tourism (a major source of income) is suffering due to recent world events. It's important for conscientious travelers to know there are safe and exciting places to visit.
