Ecotourism in Malaysia is perhaps epitomised in the act of climbing Mt. Kinabalu. Southeast Asia's highest peak, Mt. Kinabalu, located in Kinabalu National Park, just outside the city of Kota Kinabalu, is what many ecotourists choose to conquer in Malaysian Borneo. The climb is, to some, magical, to others, sheer pain, but nonetheless it is an experience of Malaysia's finest ecotourism offerings, whether it's the hardest physical thing you've ever done, or just a walk in the park.
