Sabah is amazing! I have visited some crazy places while exploring the land. My first stop was to Turtle Island Park! I have never seen so many turtles in one place. They were all different sizes and two different species. They have a turtle hatchery set up for anyone who would like to see. I stayed over night on the beach to watch the turtles come out of the sea and lay their eggs. It was amazing to watch! I think the beers we were drinking helped a lot too! Here is a link to their main website if you are interested. http://www.malaysiasite.nl/turtle.htm
Next I ventured west to Mt Kinabalu National Park. Here I climbed to the top of the highest mountain in East Asia! The mountain reaches 13,435 FT with a snow capped top for part of the year. Talk about breathe taking, we watched the sunrise from above the clouds. It was a whole new high being up there. I am off to the South of Sabah now. I’ll BLOG again in a few days/weeks.
