[PHOTOS] Rare Sight Of Ice Crystals And 'Snow' Form On Mount Kinabalu
On Saturday, 19 September, a hiker spotted ice crystals that had formed along the peak of Mount Kinabalu, Sabah
Although this is not the first time that the mountain has seen 'snow-like' frost, it is still an incredibly rare sight
In previous years, trekkers have seen ice sheets form near the mountain's summit
Between 2014 and 2017, photos of frost and ice sheets on Mount Kinabalu circulated the Internet.
Being one of the tallest mountains in Southeast Asia, it is reported that temperatures on Mount Kinabalu's peak can drop to as low as -2°C to 0°C. So it is a natural phenomenon when puddles of water freeze over to form ice sheets.
