Kundasang is located at the foothills of the famous Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in the state of Sabah, and also in Malaysia, and there are many beautiful and scenic places to be found there. One of my favourite places in Kundasang is the Mesilau Highlands, or the Mesilau Plateau.
When I went there, I felt I had been transported into an ideallic postcard-perfect countryside. It is such a lovely place that I would like to come back again in the future.
The most scenic spot at Mesilau is probably the place where the Desa Dairy Farm is located. With the feathery drizzle bringing in a thick mist, I thought that perhaps I had been transported to Scotland. 🙂
Visitors can view the milking area behind a glass panel, and sample the variety of products produced by the farm, which are for sale there, such as fresh milk, yogurt, pudding, gelato, cheese, etc. I tried the gelato (RM5.30) and Toma cheese (RM8 per 100g wedge), and liked them. The farm produces Toma and Camembert cheese, but only Toma was available that day. Toma is a soft or semi-hard, mild Italian cow’s milk cheese. This is the first time I have come across it, so I had to try it. 😉
There is also a sort of petting zoo, but with only calves and goats. Visitors can feed milk to the calves and grass to the goats, for a small fee. It was a hit with the visiting children.
Here are some photos from Desa Fairy Farm:
