Mt Kinabalu Tour – Mount Kinabalu Climb

DAY 1 - KOTA KINABALU TO MOUNT KINABALU
Rise early for a scenic morning drive north from Kota Kinabalu along the Crocker Range, an undulating series of green ridges that dominate Sabah’s rugged landscape. Enjoy a brief stop at a local market before arriving at the park, Malaysia’s first World Heritage Site. Explore the many winding forest trails, learn about the park’s flora at the Mountain Garden, or visit the Exhibition Centre. Overnight in a park cabin.
DAY 2 - MOUNT KINABALU
Morning register for your climb before beginning a day-long trek through the ever-changing forest (approx. 5-6 hours, no special mountaineering skills are required but a certain level of fitness is essential). Overnight stay in a simple mountain hut with dormitory-style rooms. Upgrade to private room on request.
DAY 3 - MOUNT KINABALU TO KOTA KINABALU
Set off for the challenging summit trek in the dark hours of the morning in time to catch a mesmerising sunrise (approx. 2.5-3.5 hours). Begin your descent before the morning mist rolls in and enjoy breakfast at the mountain hut. Continue to the park to receive a certificate to prove your successful conquest. Relax after lunch before returning to Kota Kinabalu.
