Mt Kinabalu - Mountains, River & Beach Exped






Mar - Oct




Mt Kinabalu is one of the highest mountain in South East Asia. It’s a craggy, tectonic plateau, technically part of the Bornean Crocker Range, and looms over the surrounding Sabah jungle like something out of Lord Of The Rings. For a lot of Malaysia travellers, this is the whole reason they visit: to get up at 2am, drink several cups of strong coffee, and watch the sun rise over Low’s Peak.

But like most mountains over 13,000 feet, you’ll need more than a sturdy pair of hiking boots and a sunny attitude. It pays to do your research beforehand. What gear should you bring? What’s accommodation like on the mountain? If Kinabalu is on your itinerary, do you even have to climb? And what about altitude sickness? Consider this your Mt Kinabalu survival guide. Everything you need to know before tackling Gunung Kinabalu. Mt Kinabalu sits on Borneo, about 4,000 metres above sea level, which makes it the 20th most prominent mountain in the world. But it’s not the toughest trek going around. Most tour companies (including us) run two-day climbs, with one night spent in dorm accommodation on the mountain (we’ll get to that later). Kinabalu is a World Heritage Site, and you’ll pass through several habitats and ecosystems on the way up: steamy Sabah rainforest, Montane grasslands, desolate rock-scapes and the famous alpine meadows. Keep your eyes peeled too – there are 5,000 types of plants, 326 different birds and over 100 mammal species on the mountain. Only 135 climbers are allowed on the mountain each day, so it does tend to book up early. For peak season travel, we recommend locking in your spot at least six months in advance
