Mountain Ranges in Malaysia (Banjaran Gunung)


West and East Malaysia (marked)

After procrastinated for 8 "contiguous" years, I finally decided to get this done once and for all and thus closed off one chapter.

Not many articles out there show the sketches to mark the official mountain ranges; for those I could locate, I had downloaded them.

  • Some spelling adjusted to current day
