Desa Dairy Farm, Mesilau - New Zealand in Malaysia?

It is 30 minutes drive from Mt.Kinabalu National Park and the largest farm in Sabah with an area of 199 hectares.

The road into the dairy farmis not paved. The slow drive on the dirt road can be a tad frustrating but not for so long.

I was greeted with a spectacular view of rolling green meadows that stretch as far as to the foothills of the majestic mountain.

Every step I made or every angle I looked at, the view was constantly awe-inspiring. For a while, I though I was in New Zealand instead of Malaysia!

Apart from the magnificent scenery, visitors can also observed the milking process.

Guided tour can be arranged before hand, otherwise visitors can only observed the milking process without any assistance.

The farm is open daily from 8am to 5pm. The best time to visit the farm is around 2:30pm as milking session starts at 3pm daily.

There, you can see all the cows are lining up waiting for milking, without any guide needed as if they knew what to do. Cool! ??
