High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Mount Kinabalu (Malay:
Gunung Kinabalu) is a prominent mountain on the island of Borneo in
Southeast Asia. It is located in the east Malaysian state of Sabah
and is protected as Kinabalu National Park, a World Heritage Site.
Kinabalu is the tallest peak in Borneo's Crocker Range and is the
4th tallest mountain in the Malay Archipelago after Indonesian
Papua's Puncak Jaya, Puncak Trikora and Puncak Mandala. In 1997, a
re-survey using satellite technology established its summit (known
as Low's Peak) height at 4095 metres (13435 ft) above sea level,
which is some 6 metres (20 ft) less than the previously thought and
hitherto published figure of 4101 metres (13455 ft). The mountain
and its surroundings are among the most important biological sites
in the world, with over 4500 species of plant, 326 species of
birds, and 100 mammalian species identified. Among this rich
collection of wildlife are famous species such as the gigantic
Rafflesia plants and the orangutan. Mount Kinabalu has been
accorded UNESCO World Heritage status.
