[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The cool thing about jungle exploring at the foot of Mt. Kinabalu, there are islands of rainforest which are unexplored yet.

At the base of Mt Kinabalu, at the upper reaches of Kiau Valley is a narrow gorge called Minitinduk of which the Kadamaian River trundles through. From the highway just before Bundu Tuhan, you can see a tall thin cascading waterfall called Kadamaian (previously called Cascade )on the south western side of Mount Kinabalu, which feeds this river.

Most of the forest area around the gorge is dense and unexplored. And because of its thick canopies, its forest floor is littered with dead plants and epiphytes such as orchids, mushrooms and fungus.

In the photo, a clam shell like yellow bracket fungi sticking on the side of a decomposing tree trunk near our campsite, which was really an overhanging rock beside the Kadamaian River near the Minitinduk Gorge.
