Mount Kinabalu

The recent Mount Kinabalu Frost is a natural phenomenon. This is because the climate and weather conditions are the same as in the past. The Sabah Meteorological Bureau said.

The recent incidents on the mountain are similar to those recorded in 1993, 2014 and 2017. Country director Amirzudi Hashim state that.

“Frost on the top of Mount Kinabalu is a natural phenomenon that may occur during periods of continuous rainfall, dense fog and strong high-altitude winds.

“After that, Frost will form in a cold climate above 11,000 feet. If this continues, it will freeze at the peak set on September 19.

Amirzudi was asked to comment on recent photos shared by Facebook user Wandy John, which showed the “snow” phenomenon on this mountain, which has been popular on social media for some time.

He said that Laban Rata Station has an altitude of 3,311m. The minimum temperature on September 18 and September 19 was 7.1 degrees Celsius.
