    what a wonderful trip. You took so many wonderful photos. Thank you for taking the time to upload them here to share with all of us. I have never been to Borneo, but hope to get the chance someday to go. There was talk of arranging an OrchidTalk Orchid Forum Members trip to Borneo at one point. It looks amazing.

    Thank you.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Thanks a million lanhua for the wonderful pictures of the scenery and the plants. I feel so ashamed that someone from another country has shown me how wonderful my own backyard is. I've promised myself for years to climb Mt Kinabalu and I hope it won't be too late for me. Congrats for being able to see the Rafflesia. Not many people, even in Malaysia( and that includes me) have been fortunate enough to see the Rafflesia in bloom.

    from the photo i recognised the cave. You're slightly off trek. But you're not far off the spot, just 50-70 metres away, to see stonei and the famous endemic nepenthes-N.northiana.

    unbelievable, we asked the local people for Paph. stonei and they told us, we should go up to the hill. This we didn;t believe and went back. Bad luck. Maybe next time you can guide me to this place?
