The limestone pinnacles on Gunung Api are reached by a short but steep hike from camp 5 which includes ladders over some of the razor sharp formations. They are eroded from limestone beds and reach as high as 40 or 50 meters.

Beautiful. I didn't realize Malaysia had this kind of topography. The only thing I don't like is the blurry foreground rock. It's distracting me for some reason - perhaps it's too blurry? If we could tell that it was one of the same limestones and see some texture, it might be a better foreground subject. I think I might like it just gone altogether. Still a great shot - and probably dangerous too!

Very interesting and extraordinary place !
Nature has created a strange combination and contrast between
the "tree like" dead stones , and the green living trees !
I would only suggest excluding the near stone occupying the lower part of the picture, or keeping it in focus.
and adding some sharpness to the pic.
Thanks for sharing this view David !

This goes to prove that repeating patterns make great photos.
It's a shame about the blurry foreground, though.
