Tour Description:

Day 1 – Kota Kinabalu / Kinabalu Park / Timpohon Gate / Pendant Hut / Laban Rata Rest House

Meet your guide bright and early in the morning to depart to Kinabalu Park and arrive there by 8:30 am. The park holds the title of being Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site, and also the Centre of Plant Diversity for South East Asia. They boast a collection of more than 5000 vascular plant species and around 90 lowland mammal species. However, Mount Kinabalu’s summit view is the main gem of the park. At the park, you’ll do all the necessary registration with the help of your guide and you shall also be assigned to a mountain guide.

Get transported to Timpohon Gate, the primary entry point to climbing Mount Kinabalu from the Park headquarters. The gate is located in a large house that includes a small convenience store and an observatory platform on the top. It is here where you can stock up on high-energy snacks at the store and get a quick glimpse of the valley from the platform. After you’ve stocked up on all the necessities then you’re off to your next destination which might be a 4 to 6-hour hike.

Once you’ve arrived at your accommodation for the night you’ll be attending a mandatory briefing on Via Ferrata safety. This briefing is beneficial and crucial for all to attend so first-timers and experienced mountaineers alike are highly encouraged to attend. During the briefing, you will be informed about your hike up to the summit, tutorials on how to wear the harness as well as how to work the carabiners. You will also be introduced to your Mountain Torq trainer here that’s going to ensure your safety. After taking a short rest in your room, make your way down to the Laban Rata Rest House where you’ll have your dinner before retiring for the night.

Day 2 – Pendant Hut / Mount Kinabalu Summit / Low’s Peak / Sayat Sayat Hut / Pendant Hut / Timpohon Gate / Kinabalu Park / Kota Kinabalu

Wake up at 1:30 am for an early supper to gain energy before starting your climb. Get ready to climb up to Mount Kinabalu’s summit which sits at 4095.02 metres above sea level which should take about 3 hours to complete. You should reach the summit just in time for the sunrise where you can be awed by the rainbow of colours slowly fill the sky as the sun emerges from behind the thick clouds. Take in the beauty of the sunrise before descending Low’s Peak to meet your Mountain Torq trainer. Your trainer will lead you to the 7.5 kilometre mark to meet your Via Ferrata trainer to guide you through your Low’s Peak Circuit activity.

Mount Kinabalu’s Via Ferrata is Asia’s first and also the world’s second highest at 3200 to 3800 metres above sea level. The Via Ferrata is a great option for beginners to witness picturesque areas of the mountains that usually only experienced climbers get the pleasure of seeing. The Low’s Peak circuit is a totally different route to the regular route in Mount Kinabalu and is definitely not one to miss! Around 11 am you’ll make your way back down for a well-deserved breakfast before checking out of your accommodation. You’ll then trek back down to Timpohon Gate where you will be transferred back to Kinabalu Park. Once at the park you’ll receive your certificate of achievement to mark your completion of the climb. To mark the end of the trip you’ll get a hearty buffet lunch before you depart to Kota Kinabalu.
