According to Harian Metro, the phenomenon happens when the surrounding temperature hits -2 degrees Celcius. Yassin Miki, the manager of Kinabalu Park, said this typically happens when the temperature drops drastically during the drought season around 4am-5am.

The dew drop-covered plants turn frozen in the early morning, and sometimes riverbeds or water puddles get covered in ice as well.

Yassin Miki added that this phenomenon doesn’t last long though. The ice melts as soon as the sun rises and the process repeats every early morning for a certain period of time.
