District police officer Rahman Kassim said Victoria Paulsen fell some 30 metres down a rocky surface from the peak of Kinabalu, one of Southeast Asia's highest mountains and a major tourist attraction in the eastern state of Sabah.
Paulsen had climbed the peak to see the sunrise with other tourists including a guide and at least one male friend, Rahman said. Her body has been sent to a mortuary.
