Description

You do not want to miss your chance to climb one of the highest peaks in South East Asia. Join us as we trek to the summit of Mount Kinabalu across two days.

This is a truly awesome trek and the great thing about it is that you don’t need a lot of mountaineering experience. You do need to be pretty fit though as reaching the top is no walk in the park.

On our first day, we’ll hike for around four to five hours until we reach our accommodation for the night, Laban Rata Huts (3272m). On the way, we’ll be able to take in the stunning plant life and biodiversity of the mountain. Then the next day we’ll get up super early (2 am!) so we can make it to the summit and down again in one day. It’ll take us around 3 hours from camp to summit.

The views from the top are amazing and depending on how fast you are you may see the sunrise from the top. We’ll take some time to get photos and admire the view before we head home.

This is an awesome opportunity to climb Borneo’s highest mountain, secure your place today, get in touch!

And, if you’d like to take a little longer to do this hike, take a look at our three-day option. 

Itinerary

Day 1: Hike to Laban Rata (3272m)

We’ll pick you up at 6.30 am from your hotel and drive for two hours to the Kinabalu Park entrance where you’ll pick up your packed lunch. After a little bit of paperwork, you’ll start your climb! You’ll pass beautiful Oak and Chestnut trees then mossy forests and finally alpine vegetation. When you arrive at the Laban Rata (3272m) you’ll have a buffet style dinner before going to sleep.

Day 2: Hike to summit and descent

We’ll leave early, at around 2am, to start our hike to the summit at 4,095m. This is a hard section of the hike and your fitness will be tested. It’s worth it though for the views!

At 7 am we’ll begin our descent and reach Laban Rata for a late breakfast and check out.

We’ll then continue on to Timpohon Gate for a transfer back to the Kinabalu Park HQ where you’ll pick up your certificate and have lunch!

At around 2 pm we will leave you back at your hotel.
