Arrived 1030am. Was later informed that we should arrive earlier (before 9am) to have a clear view of the summit. Quite frustrated, after a long 2-hour drive from KK, all we saw were clouds. However, the temperature was nice. Waited and waited at the deck, waiting for the clouds to go away, but hurmm....

Considering the time spent on getting to the Park (around 5 hours from and to the place) this attraction seems not that attractive at all. The park has a variety of species of orchids and other plants. To spot this you will need a guide to point them out with explanations, which means it's better to join a package tour.... More

This park is set about an hour drive out of Kota Kinabalu and is really worth visiting for sight-seeing, walking and natural beauty. Stay overnight at one of the small cottage resorts and enjoy the sunsets! There are lots of things to do particularly if you enjoy strolling, walking or just taking in a few sights - there are plenty... More

But you do get a great experience of mountain base camp. The environment is surreal. And you do get the change to take some photos of Kinabalu Base. Do drive around till the top, the scenery is great.

This place is to put simply; gorgeous. It definitely a fresh breather from the city life. That is, if you can stand 2 hours drive to get there, on a windy road. However I find the journey is worth it once we reached the place. As I visited on an evening of a rainy season, there was too much fog... More

Interesting place to explore tropical forest but I found the trees not label. Most people , I think, would want to know the name of the trees.
