Located in Sabah, the impressive peak of Mount Kinabalu stands tall at 4095 m.  Join us as we take you on a 2-day trip to set foot on the summit of this highest peak of the Crocker Range in Borneo.

To get to the top, you can choose from the two available trails- the Summit Trail and the Mesilau Trail. Be assured that both the routes offer spectacular views as you climb. And, you don’t even need any particular skills to go on this trip. All you require is a fit body and some enthusiasm, and you should be just fine!
