Mt. Kinabalu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is located in the Mt. Kinabalu Park in Sabah. A lot of people come to KK to climb Mt. Kinabalu. From what I've read, the climb doesn't require special climbing equipment and you just need to be in good health. It can be hiked in two or three days.
Our trip to KK was kind of last minute and we didn't really look into climbing to the top, so instead we just went to Mt. Kinabalu Park for a nature walk and to see the botanical garden. As we walked around, we could feel the temperature was cooler in some areas. The different climate zones are part of the reason why there is so much biodiversity at Mt. Kinabalu Park.
