Information on Mount Trusmadi – 2nd Largest Mountain in Sabah
Mount Trusmadi, at 2,462m or 8,669ft is Malaysia’s second highest mountain after Mount Kinabalu which 4,101m or 13.433ft but is much tougher to climb. It lies between the districts of Tambunan to the north and Keningau to the south, two towns in the state of Sabah.
Unlike Mount Kinabalu which is visited by thousands of people every year, Mount Trusmadi – situated some 70km southeast of Kota Kinabalu is not a tourist attraction and is rarely visited. Until recently, only one or two expeditions climb the mountain each year.
The slopes of the mountain, which are covered with rich vegetation houses many species of birds, animals and plants, making it a trekker’s haven. The summit (of Mount Trusmadi) is reputed to have the best dawn view of Mount Kinabalu, which lies over 40km to the north. A unique pitcher plant, Nepenthes trusmadienosis (a natural hybrid between Nepenthes lowii and Nepenthes edwardsiana) is found here and nowhere else.
