We went, we conquer and ..

We are back from Mount Kinabalu!

As fellow geoscientist of Malaysia, we all know that Mount Kinabalu is the tallest mountain in our country. Standing at ~4094m, it is about half of Everest, 20 times the depth of water in the Malay basin and one third of the depth of sediments in it.
Alright.. compared to Everest or the Mariana Trench, it might not be as fascinating but put it in simpler words; you still need a good stamina and more layers if you want to go up there.

Quick facts on Mount Kinabalu:
Kinabalu's name is still a mystery and most popular view derives from the Kadazan words, Aki Nabalu, meaning 'the revered place of the dead'. The Kadazandusuns believe that their spirits dwell on the mountain top.
CLick on the link to find out more, or just google Mount Kinabalu.


We share with you some of our Geoscientist's adventure!






You know what rocks made up of Mount Kinabalu?
Ever wonder why are the rocks sheet like? or how long ago does it's geological history trace to?


Mount Kinabalu is a granite plutonic intrusion below sedimentary rocks and its history traces back to late Eocene. It is very closely related to the regional tectonic deformation of the time- the subduction of the Rajang sea. 


Kinabalu park houses much variety of tropical and low hill species. It is under wildlife protection.
