We will take you on an incredible trip to climb one of the highest peaks in South East Asia.

Standing tall at 4095 m, Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain 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 exceptional views. And, you don’t even need any particular climbing skills to scale this mountain giant. All you require is a fit body and an undying spirit!

The trip begins in Kota Kinabalu. We’ll pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to Kinabalu Park. On your way, we’ll halt at Nabalu Market and here you can shop some souvenirs for friends and family. Later, you will spend the day exploring the amazing plant life of the park.

The next day, after registration, we’ll head towards the starting point of the climb and set on our journey. It will take a good hike of about 4 hours to reach Laban Rata. Here, you will enjoy your packed lunch along with witnessing panoramic views of the surrounding peaks. Aftrwards, you will spend the evening relaxing at your comfortable mountain guesthouse.

We will attempt the summit on the final day. Starting just past midnight at about 2 am we’ll set towards the peak in our torchlight. After climbing for about 3 hours you will be able to set your foot on the peak and witness amazing views of the morning sky. Get ready to also see a stunning sunrise, a sight you will cherish for life!

After relishing our time, we will descend to Laban Rata and finally to the Power Station from where we will transfer you to your hotel in Kota Kinabalu. You sure will take back unforgettable memories with you!
