Despite its relatively small size, the state of Sabah is home to all manner of weird and wonderful wildlife. During a trip here take in the heights of Mt Kinabalu and the depths of the rainforest in the Danum Valley as well as the beautiful beaches on Gaya Island and a whole host of other protected and beautiful areas. Kota Kinabalu is the usual point of entry and one instant focal point is the brooding presence of Mt Kinabalu, which at 13,500ft is the highest peak in Southeast Asia. Despite its height, the mountain makes for a challenging but eminently achievable climb involving an overnight stay on the mountainside.
Further afield, the creatures the island is most famous for are the so called 'men of the jungle', or orangutans. These apes can be seen at the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, located in an area of virgin equatorial rainforest. The chance to spot one of these majestic orange primates is truly once-in-a-lifetime stuff, though sadly, this is one of only a few places remaining on Earth where this endangered species can be viewed.
