More info about Mountain Climbing in Malaysia:

Split into two separate portions – West Malaysia on the Asian mainland and East Malaysia on the island of Borneo – just about all of the country’s mountain climbing opportunities are found in the east. Away from Mount Kinabalu, there are various other peaks to climb in East Malaysia, although none of them are as tall. The second highest peak, which offers a bit of a challenge for moutnaineers is Mount Trusmadi (2,620 meters). With three climbing trails to the peak’s summit, it is also a popular destination for ecotourists due to the abundance of endemic fauna and flora on its slopes. Overall, the island of Borneo is home to 25 mountains with 2,000 meters or more of elevation. There are another 50 or so mountains with an elevation of 1,000 meters or more
