    Default Poring (Sabah) orchid garden

    before climbing Gudung Kinabalu I went to Poring to visit a orchid garden, located there. There are a lot of beautiful orchids and I can just recommend to visit this place.
    Being there suddenly I became speechless, as I realised to stay face to face with a orang-utan and no bars in between. I took few pictures and slowly, happy of such experience, went back.

    a very unique orchid, Dimorphorchis rossi, endemic to Borneo. First flower is yellow, further white with brown spots.

    Wow! lovely forest out there. Love the orchids. Especially the first one (with the brown and green petals) and Dimorphorchis rossi. Ofcourse the apes are awesome too!

    Since watching Sir David Attenborough on Mt. Kinabalu, it has become the no. 1 location I would like to travel on a nature exploration trip. Awesome pictures !! By the way did you see any Nepenthes rajah growing wild on Kinabalu, they are endemic there and grow quite huge.

    I think the picture in my trip to Gunung Kinabalu shows Nepenthes rajah.
