Kinabalu Park and Kundasang would be in most people radar when thinking of spending a cold and relaxing time away from the low land city and towns in Sabah. Although less well known, an alternative destination for a cold weather get away is located at the Crocker Range. Geologically the Kinabalu Park area is still part of the Crocker Range which extends all the way down south to the border of Sarawak. Situated at 1,662 metres (5,453 feet) above sea level, Gunung Alab Resort is the only accommodation one will find at this altitude in the Crocker Range. Even though it is called a resort, Gunung Alab facilities look more like a motel. The rental here is also leaning towards the budget side. The rooms are basic and clean, but are sufficient to provide guests a comfortable over-night stay. When night falls the temperature can drop to 18C or 20C. At times this place feels colder than Kundasang, may be it is because there are more trees in this area, where most of the forests are still intact. In the late afternoon it is not uncommon for the area to be shrouded by a thick layer of mist.
