Mountain Climbing Sites in Malaysia

I received an email asking me about other mountain climbing sites in Malaysia. After so much research (including going to Sabah Tourism Center) to look for the information, I managed to get these. As of end 2006, this is the latest list for mountain climbing sites in Malaysia.

Unfortunately, I only have the information on Mount Kinabalu. You have to look somewhere else for other mountain. For your information, ‘gunung’ is mountain in Malay.
