Although the summit was closed we decided to go to Kinabalu Park. It was a great day and we did about 15km of forest hikes, one leading right to the entrance of where you start the summit climb. Forest is very clean, trails well kept and easy to hike. The forest offers some spectacular views and great ancient trees humble... More

Nothing to see. Wasted our time for the journey from kk city. The road directory is not clear. No view on "mountain view".

It's s beautiful national park but the facilities are pretty basic. Nevertheless, it is still breathtakingly beautiful! A vacation to Sabah is incomplete until you have climbed up the most famous mountain in South-East Asia. Highly recommended!

The selling point is the view of Mount Kinabalu, if the cloud does not get in the away. Partially our group's fault for not being there earlier. We arrived around 7pm and was only able to settle for buffet dinner at Balsam. After that, it was time for rest before the hike up to Mount Kinabalu the next morning. The... More

Being one of the top 20 mountains to climb, what more do I need to say? Other than being well equipped and well trained, you will be greeted with smiles over at the Park Office and patient help from the staff for registration. There are several packages to choose from based on your physical capability. Be very sure and careful... More

Been to Kinabalu National Park a few times and always find it awe inspiring to hiking along the mountain trails here. Lots of birds but the best chance of seeing them is along the roadways around the park headquarters. Get there early, wear comfortable shoes and have raingear handy.

This mountain is a challenge for the average hill walker especially if you have a problem with altitude sickness as the ascent is rapid (an average of about 1in 3 up to Laban Ratan at 3300m altitude). The peak is some 13,500ft (4,095m) and is accessed by either of two steep rocky paths with occasional timber steps, culminating in bare... More

Before coming here, understand first that this is a natural park. It is nature in its pure state. No distortion whatsoever except for the trail. You cannot expect famous monkeys in Borneo. You cannot expect flowers around you unless it's the season for the orchids to bear flowers. You can only hear the chirping of the birds and cries of... More

Frankly i had expected i could dive into flora and fauna of wonderful Borneo. However i could see there only wild nature and hear the sounds. The groups with 10+ people didn't allow to enjoy that sounds in full however. Overall: wonderful views of Kinabalu mountain, quite cool weather so take warm clothes with you, could be raining, always kind... More
