Malaysia's Very Own Lost World
Malaysia is really a fascinating country. There are still undiscovered territories in our lush jungle I'm sure. Dark and mysterious corners too, I have no doubt. Anyway, recently in the '80s to be exact, a sort of a 'Lost World' was discovered in the heart of Sabah in East Malaysia. Imagine a self-contained forest where rare and endemic flora and fauna have thrived for millions of years in a saucer-shaped basin hemmed in by sheer cliffs. Step into the pristine Maliau Basin Conservation Area (MBCA), aptly dubbed the Lost World. For some reason, I'm not able to upload the pictures, so I'll just have to point you to the source of the article. Enjoy and share the fascination.
