KUNDASANG & RANAU : General Info & Tourist Attraction

 
 

KUNDASANG

&

RANAU

 

Ranau situated in the West Coast division of Sabah, the hilly district of Ranau is located 1, 176 meters above sea level. It is inhabited by an almost entirely Dusun ethnic community and is on the highway connecting Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan. Just 20 kilometers away from Kinabalu Park, it is one of the gateways to the National Park, Poring Hot Springs, and Sabah Tea Garden. Kundasang, home of the luminous Mount Kinabalu lies in Ranau. Ranau was also the terminus of the notorious Sandakan Death March during the World War II. The Kundasang War Memorial serves to commemorate the sacrifices and bravery of the fallen heroes.

 

Kundasang, home of the luminous Mount Kinabalu lies in Ranau. 6Km (4miles) from the Kinabalu Park HQ, renowned for temperate vegetables. A long row of wooden stalls ?gerai? hustling with vegetable whole-sellers. Pick-up trucks fully laden with vegetables from farms along the valley deliver and unload their goods at the stalls. Bulk-buyers come from all over Sabah, even Sarawak and Brunei. Passing travellers also stop to purchase. Nearby are a few rows of shops, seemingly sleepy except on Fridays, the weekly Tamu market day.

 
 

AGRO T NURSERY

 

situated just a few metres from the Kundasang War Memorial on the left. At a small fee, it is possible to tour the nursery?s gardens of flowers, such as roses, orchids, hybrid hibiscus, tomatoes and other vegetables.

 
 
 

THE RANAU MEMORIAL

 

Located immediately behind the rows of shops.

 

Major G.S. Carter. D.S.O. (Toby Carter) a New Zealander employed with Shell Oil Co. (Borneo) initiated the building of the Memorial to remember the 2,428 Australian and British prisoners of war who died during World War2 at Sandakan POW Camp, the 3 infamous forced death marches from Sandakan to Ranau, and as tribute to the many.

 
 
 

MOUNT KINABALU GOLF COURSE

 

This 18-hole course, at 1,500m above sea level offers stunning views and some unique golf on some steep fairways where occasionally swirling mists. A Club house and restaurant offers a chance for relaxing meal after a satisfying game.

 
 
 

THE MESILAU NATURE RESORT

 

Situated at 2,000m in the eastern part of Kinabalu Park. It offers an attractive restaurant and a range of accommodations. Visitors must not miss the Information Centre and the guided walk to the Nepenthes Garden, a mountain slope covered with naturally growing pitcher plants, including the giant Nepenthes rajah. It is really, really amazing.

 
 
 

GEREJA (CHURCH) SIB PEKAN RANAU

 

The Oath Stone

After the bridge with the Tamu by the river hanks, in the grounds of the Borneo Evangelical Church (or Gereja SIB Pekan Ranau) is an important historical site. Here sits the Oath of Loyalty swum by the natives of Ranau after the colonial North Borneo Chartered Company put down a rebellion led by Mat Salleh in 1893.

 

Rafflesia at Kampung Kokob Baru.

5Km after Ranau, on the main road to Sandakan and en-route to the Poring Hut Springs, keep a look-out for a roadside sign announcing ?Rafflesia Blooming?. Or you may phone villager Kundang Ransigi (088-875-114/013-879-4154).
