Mesilau Nature Park in Borneo is a Good Alternative to Kinabalu National Park for Those Looking for a National Park Vacation

One of the most popular Borneo locations is unquestionably Kinabalu National Park, which is home to the majestic Mount Kinabalu. Many tourists to Kinabalu National Park come for a relaxing National Park Vacation to escape the scorching tropical heat and get a view of the tallest peak in South East Asia, or to climb the mysterious Mount Kinabalu, which attracts thousands of people each year.

For a really memorable National Park Vacation in Borneo, you must visit the lesser-known Mesilau Nature Park, which is just about 30 minutes away by road from Kinabalu National Park and offers some of the most spectacular views of the island's natural wonders. Mesilau Nature Park is just a 2.5-hour drive from Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah in Malaysia Borneo, which is the state of Sabah.

Mesilau Nature Park is situated on the Pinosok Plateau, close to Kundasang town, in the neighborhood of Kinabalu National Park, on the Pinosok Plateau, and within the proximity of Kinabalu National Park. The route from Kundasang town to Mesilau Nature Park, which is about 2,000 metres above sea level, is very steep and twisting, and it takes approximately two hours. The road quality, on the other hand, has significantly improved in recent years, making the ascent a breeze.


The spectacular views of the Kundasang valley, with terraced hill slopes planted with highlands vegetables, and parts of the scenic beauty of the Kundasang Mount Kinabalu Golf Course, a challenging 18-hole golf course for avid golfers and unquestionably the highest golf course in South East Asia, will undoubtedly capture your attention along the way.

However, if you get to Mesilau Nature Park, you will realize that the area is more natural and "virgin" than the now "commercialized" Kinabalu National Park, which is located nearby. Because the Park is located at the foot of Mount Kinabalu, the mountain will seem even more magnificent, with a vertical wall of granite rising thousands of meters above the pristine forest floor and terminating in jagged peaks. The Mesilau Pinnacles are an appropriate name for this magnificent site to see.

To get the most out of Mesilau, you'll want to stay at the eco-friendly Mesilau Nature Resort, which is situated amid the woods at the foot of the mountain inside the Park and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area. The Resort itself is spectacular since it was meticulously designed and constructed to fit in with its natural surroundings.

The chalets are located on hills surrounded by woods, with a full view of the Mesilau River running below them in the distance. Moreover, the Kedamaian Restaurant is well-known for its boiling hot steamboat and barbecue meals, which gives it an excellent reason to spend an extra night.

Mesilau Nature Park is also the beginning point for the more difficult alternative path up Mount Kinabalu, which begins at the park. In case you are feeling really brave, you may walk up to a few kilometers along the path, regardless of whether you want to climb Mount Kinabalu. In addition, since the Mesilau Summit Path is newer and less popular than the old summit trail, your chances of seeing (tamed) animals are higher on the Mesilau Summit Trail.

One notable aspect of the path is the apparently endless supply of orchids (Rhododendrons) and pitcher plants that may be found. The "Nepenthes Rajah," the world's biggest pitcher plant, is said to thrive in profusion here, according to historical records. For the majority of tourists, a guided nature walk around the Park is suggested since it is less physically demanding. It will leave you with long-lasting recollections of the "natural" world.

Known as a really amazing nature's paradise, Mesilau will not fail to captivate you with its cool temperate environment (temperatures range between 17 and 21 degrees Celsius during the day and 10-15 degrees Celsius at night) and peaceful surroundings as a truly amazing nature's paradise. Mesilau Nature Park and its Resort are an excellent location for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Mesilau is a paradise for naturalists because of the bio-diversity of the flora and animals that can be found here. It is one of the finest places in Borneo for a memorable National Park Vacation, and it is also one of the most accessible.
