Mount Kinabalu overlooks the city of Kota Kinabalu. The surrounding area is rice farms in the coastal plain and rainforests in the Crocker Range.
The fog in the valley makes the mountain seem distant. There are many waterfalls.
At the base of Mount Kinabalu there is a garden with many native plants from the area. The pitcher plants do not usually grow so high, and the ones in the valley are bigger.
We passed a water buffalo and calf.
False clown anemonefish, Amphiprion ocellaris
Common lionfish, Pterois volitans
We did some diving off Kota Kinabalu to make sure our equipment survived the flights to Borneo. The near-shore reefs were still recovering from being heavily silted by a freak typhoon in December.
