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.
During the dry season, average daily temperatures at Mount Kinabalu sit around 27 ºC. Rain falls the least in the dry season, but is not uncommon.
Any trip to Mount Kinabalu begins with a flight into Kota Kinabalu International Airport (BKI) in East Malaysia. Most guides will opt to meet you here and provide transport to the start of the trip.
