Tour Description:

Day 1 – Park HQ / Timp. Gate / Ascend Mount Kinabalu / Laban Rata

Make a 2-hour journey to your nature getaway at Kinabalu Park, leaving your hotel at approximately 6.30 am. Head towards the Park’s HQ to collect your packed lunch before proceeding to register for an attempt at Mount Kinabalu. Exchange greetings with your assigned guide and make sure to apply for an ID tag to be worn at all times. After that, you will be transferred to Timpohon Gate, the start of your journey begins. Taking approximately 4 to 5 hours, you will pass by varying vegetation zones with numerous distinct plants such as the Oak and Chestnut trees to mossy and alpine vegetation, depending on altitude.

The sight of Laban Rata huts will flood you with relief, marking your ascent to 3,272 metres altitude. Do note that the dormitories are non-heated and without a water heater. It is important to stay dry as the climate is naturally damp and cold; dropping to 8°C in the evenings. Explore your surroundings, rest and rejuvenate for the ascent the following day. Enjoy a hearty buffet dinner at Laban Rata restaurant before hitting the hay to keep spirits up and replenish your energy reserves.

Day 2 – Low's Peak / Descend Mount Kinabalu / Kota Kinabalu

You will have to wake up at an ungodly hour (2 am) for an early supper before pressing on to Low’s Peak (4095m) via the Summit Trail—a true test of endurance and your determination. Depending on how fast you go, you might even get to witness the breathtaking sight of the sun rising over Mount Kinabalu—if the weather permits. Take a moment to admire the sights and revel in the sense of accomplishment before descending back to Laban Rata at 7 am to check out. Then, continue on to Timpohon Gate for the transfer back to Kinabalu Park Headquarters.

Collect your Certification of Achievement before enjoying a scrumptious buffet lunch at Balsam Restaurant in Kinabalu Park. Lay back and rest as you embark on your 2-hour journey home, leaving behind footprints and bringing with you fond memories and an unforgettable experience.
