3 Days

All year




  • Enjoy a 3-day adventure that will take you to the summit of Mount Kinabalu.
  • Spend your nights in a comfortable guesthouse and hostel.
  • Enjoy the hot springs and other highlights of Poring in Sabah.


The highest mountain in the Crocker range in Borneo, Mount Kinabalu (4,095m) is an amazing peak. And, on this 3-day, 2-night expedition, we would like to guide you to the summit of this great peak. We would also like to take you to the lovely, soothing Poring Hot Spring on the final day of the trip as well.

Our adventure will begin at 7:30 am, when we pick you up from your hotel and take you to Kinabalu Park. After registering, we will go to the Power Station and then climb for approximately 4 hours to Laban Rata. Once there, you will settle into the guesthouse for the night.

On the following day, we will wake up at 2:00 am and begin climbing to the summit of Kinabalu by torchlight. Once we reach the summit, you will get to enjoy a spectacular sunrise. After you’ve enjoyed the views, we will return to the guesthouse for breakfast. Afterwards, we will go to Poring, where you will check into a hostel and enjoy a delicious dinner and some leisure time.

On the final day of the trip, after breakfast, you will get to enjoy the lovely Poring Hot Spring. You can also visit spots like the Canopy Walkway, several waterfalls and a nearby butterfly farm. After that, we will depart Poring, thus concluding the trip.

We have no doubt that over the course of this trip’s 3 days, you will have a great time. To join us on this journey to the top of Kinabalu and to Poring, please send a request.

We also offer a shorter, 2-day version of this trip, which you can enjoy here.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
