More info about Via Ferrata in Malaysia:

Composed of West Malaysia, a peninsula on the Asian mainland, and East Malaysia, on the northern portion of the island of Borneo, Malaysia is home to plenty of great via ferrata opportunities. Away from the aforementioned Mount Kinabalu, which sits in East Malaysia, there are plenty of other great via ferrata spots as well. Nearby Mount Trusmadi (2,642 meters/8,668 feet) and Taman Negara Gunung Kinabalu are three other great spots for single-day via ferrata expeditions. On the far less mountainous western peninsula, Paya Gunung is home to some rocky terrain that is great for practicing the sport and getting some time to climb in the highland jungle terrain
