MOUNT Kinabalu is perhaps the most biodiverse place on the planet, being a sky island remnant of Gondwanaland. There are many species of orchid and pitcher plant growing amongst the dense forests.

The four kilometre high granite monolith towers precariously in all directions. Here at the Mesilau Information Centre at over two thousand metres above sea level, the untouched forest and near vertical swamps begin. It was near here that I came across the legendary Nepenthes Raja - the giant pitcher plant with pitchers of several litres capacity.
