More info about Malaysia:

Malaysia sits just north of the equator and is composed of a peninsula off the tip of southeastern Asia as well as the northwestern portion of the island of Borneo. Complete with a stunning mountain range, plenty of tropical and mangrove forests and more than 4,500 kilometers of beach, there are plenty of incredible options to explore. Hiking and mountaineering both on the peninsula as well as the island of Borneo are incredibly popular activities. Mount Kinabalu, the country’s tallest mountain, is found on Borneo as are most of the highest peaks, which are also popular destinations. On the peninsula, a low lying granite range runs parallel to the western coastline and affords scenic hiking opportunities. Away from hiking, whitewater rafting is another popular activity in Malaysia, with trips to the Kiulu River being the perfect spot for families and the tours on Borneo’s Padas River being slightly better suited to intermediate-level participants
