Land of Borneo Kundasang

Welcome to Sabah.. Sabah located at the Northeast corner of Borneo.
Sabah was known as "Land below the wind" because it lies below the typhoon belt.
Sabah's terrain is rugged, with Mt. Kinabalu, at 4,101 metres, dominating the surrounding landscape. It has a wide diversity of flora and fauna, as well as one of the world's largest rainforests. Sabah's people comprise 31 different indigenous groups, including the Kadazans, Muruts, Bajaus, Kedayans, Sulu, Bisaya, Rumanau, Minokok, and Rungus.
