Kg. Mesilou is a Kadazan-Dusun village located close to Mount Kinabalu in the district of Kundasang, Ranau Sabah. It can be reached by any type of transport in about two (2) hours from Kota Kinabalu and less then 10 minutes drive from Kundasang.

Mesilou is derived from the Dusun words “Osilou” which means yellow, because the rivers that cross the village are yellow naturally colored while “Atamis” means cold climate of te village thus make this homestay popularly known as “The Highest & Coldest Homestay Village in Malaysia”. It lies at an altitude of about 1600m above sea level and the temperatures can be as low as 15°C during the night.

The natural resources here, especially the rivers are well maintained. Unfortunately the recent earthquakes on 2015,changes the river landscape.

There are many other activities making the village ideal for nature recreation with the friendliness of the local people here.
