While already an internationally renowned mountain designated as Malaysia’s first Unesco World Heritage Site in 2000, did you know that this 4,095m tall mountain is still one of the youngest in the world? Apparently, it hasn’t stopped growing either. According to the August 2019 edition of Lonely Planet: Best of Malaysia & Singapore, researchers have found that Mt Kinabalu increases about 5mm in height a year.
