More Info

Due to its incredible natural beauty as well as the diverse array of flora and fauna that are endemic to its slopes, Mount Kinabalu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There are two main routes up the mountain – the Summit Trail and the Mesilau Trail – both offer spectacular views of the surroundings and do not require any previous experience.

Regardless, a high level of physical fitness is required and all climbers must be accompanied by a mountain guide, a national park policy. In spite of its relative ease of access, the peak is quite prominent, starting practically at sea level. This means altitude sickness can be a problem at higher altitudes.

Most guides offer the trip in two or three days, depending on the fitness of the group and need to acclimatize.
