About this book

First published in 1927, Kinabalu: The Haunted Mountain of Borneo still enthralls readers with the exploits of early-day explorers of Kinabalu. This account follows Enrique's desire to scale the summit with his trusted companion Sau Nan and a small entourage. Enriquez's account of his expedition contains some of the most beautifully written passages that portray the starkness and beauty of Kinabalu. He notes that "Kinabalu is a sort of Mecca for naturalists" which still holds true today. An enjoyable read that captures the romance and excitement of discovery.
