If you are a beginner in alpine sport climbing, we have a course just for you! Crafted especially for the newbies in the sport, this 4-day Mount Kinabalu training cannot be missed.

The trip will begin at 6.30 AM from your hotel in Kota Kinabalu. From there, we’ll take you to the Kinabalu Park and after registration, drive towards the start of the climb. A good climb of about 4 hours takes us to Pendant Hut, where you’ll halt to have packed lunch. And then begins our fun training at 3.30 PM.

The first day entails to course theory. You will get to learn the basics of the sport here. The rest of the day can be spent relaxing until you have your dinner at Laban Rata Canteen.

The next day, you’ll wake up early at 6 AM and after having breakfast and gorging on a beautiful sunrise, begin with our practical session titled “Course Theory or Practical Session – depending on weather and participant condition”. It will be a long session of 9 hours with small breaks where you will gain some hands-on experience about the sport. 

The following day, you’ll follow a similar routine and attend another session of the same course. Thereafter you’ll discuss the assessment result with your trainer.

Although this is just training, you will not go home until you climb the summit of Mount Kinabalu. On the final day, we’ll start early at about 1. 30 AM and set out on our journey to the top. Equipped with nothing but our torchlight, we’ll climb for a good 3 hours to reach the summit just in time to see a spectacular sunrise and head back to Pendant Hut.

Afterward, you’ll pack up and check out of the hut by 8.30 AM and descent to Timpohon Gate to collect your certificates before we drop you off to your hotel.
