Coz of Nunuk Ragang event at Ranau, I passby Kinabalu National Park. My initial plan was to take some photos of flowers but it was raining. So I paid a visit to their Kinabalu Natural History Gallery.
The entrance ticket costs a few RM. Actually I am not even sure whether I had been here before, everything looked quite familiar. It is a small gallery. They displayed the handicraft, animal / insect / plant specimen, geology info, history, rocks & minerals, photos and any item that related to Kinabalu National Park. For those who are interested in learning, the tour can take half a day. For normal and time-constraint tourists who just want to walk walk look look, it will take less than an hour.
They will show you a 20-minute video about the Mount Kinabalu and National Park too. It gives you a brief introduction about the flora and fauna you will see on the way of climbing to the top of Mount Kinabalu. That can make your experience more enjoyable coz you know what to expect. Many don’t want what they see.
There were too many things to read, and my time was limited. What I usually did was – use the digital camera to take a picture of those writing and document for later reading. If you are a nature lover, you will be pleased to see the specimen of hornbill, lizard, pitcher plant, butterfly, etc. I wish to take more photos but most items are displayed behind the glass, adding unwanted flash reflection to the picture.
