MOUNT KINABALU, standing majestically as the highest peak in Southeast Asia, holds a profound significance in the myths and legends of Sabah’s local communities.

Revered as the dwelling place of ancestors and imbued with sacredness, this iconic mountain is more than just a geological marvel; it is a spiritual sanctuary deeply intertwined with the cultural fabric of the region. 

In the narratives passed down through generations, Mount Kinabalu is not merely a physical landmark, but a living entity inhabited by powerful spirits.

Climbers who venture into its realm are expected to adhere to customs and show reverence for the mountain’s sanctity.
