Sabah is a Malaysian state occupying the northern part of Borneo. It's famed for its 4,095m-tall Mt. Kinabalu, the highest peak on the island, crowned with distinctive granite spires. Sabah is also known for its beaches, rainforest, coral reefs and abundant endemic wildlife, much of it within parks and reserves. Offshore, the Sipadan and Mabul islands are noted diving destinations.
