Photographing nature in Borneo,
Mount Kinabalu

About Borneo

Borneo is the world's third largest island with Mount Kinabalu being the tallest mountain towering at 4000m above the sea level in the state of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Kinabalu Park has been known as one of the world's richest centres of biodiversity with over 5000 species of plants, 621 species of ferns, 9 species of Nephenthes (3 endemic), nearly 100 species of mammals and over 326 species of birds.

The park is situated 80 am from Sabah's capital of Kota Kinabalu on the west coast of Sabah covering an area of 753 square KM. The elevation of the park ranges from 150m in the lowlands to the summit of Mount Kinabalu at 4095m (13,435 feet). Kinabalu Park is Malaysia's first " World Heritage Site" designated by UNESCO.

During our nature photography expedition, we discovered very diverse biodiversity of the park by shooting images of endemic plants, montane birds and fascinating pitcher plants found nowhere in the world except in Sabah. The cool mountain climate of 15-24 degree combined with the variety of the subjects to explore, made us packed with numerous photographic opportunities and learning experience to hone your nature photography skills as you travel through this World Heritage Site. There were some light walking and hiking on the treks while we group search for subjects to photograph.
