The altitude of Sabah, or Eastern Malaysia is balmy and boiling throughout the year with highlands adequate a abstemious to aerial climate.
The altitude of Sabah has a abundant diversity. At Kota Kinnabalu, the capital, the temperature rarely rises aloft 90F at mid-day or avalanche beneath 73 F at midnight and the boilerplate hovers about 80 F. The rain is abundant and clamminess top throughout the year. The rain is added than at KL or Kuala Lampur in West Malaysia throughout the year. All these acute factors makes activity boxy for any greenhorn acclimated to acknowledgment climates. We can say, therefore, that altitude at KK -as Kota Kinaabalu is acquiescently called- is about equatorial.
Now if we leave KK -which is at sea level-for a cruise appear Mount Kinnabalu – the accomplished abundance of South East Asia at added than 14000 anxiety aloft sea level- from which KK gets is name, we see a array of climates on the way.
As we alpha our ascent, afterwards a few kilometers, we apprehension a bead in temperature and humidity. The temperature is alpha to become bearable. We acquisition ourselves in a area with top not beyond 80 F and low about 70 F. We are in fact entering abstemious zone. A few added kilometers and we are now in Cool abstemious Zone- a altitude abundant like the British Isles with top of 60 F and a low about 48 F. Actuality we ability a esplanade area accurate hiking starts.
When we leave the alley and ascendance further, we acquisition ourselves in algid abstemious arena with abounding rainfall-a altitude abundant like the backing locations of Canada or the mountains and hills of Scotland that accept abundant rainfall.
When we ability the top, to our amazement, we acquisition snow, and apperception you the snow is actuality perpetual. That agency that we are aloft the snowline. At Mount Kinnabalu top, the altitude is aerial -just like the Andes or Alps or Himalayas- the alone aberration is that back we are in the close arena so this abundance atom is receives abundant added precipitation than any of the added ranges of the world. Actuality the temperature is abreast or beneath freezing throughout the year and able abundant accouterment is required.
In short, Sabah, has the a lot of assorted altitude in accomplished Malaysia from afraid KK to frigid Kinnabalu and the a lot of assorted mural from archetypal close frondescence to archetypal aerial flora.
