Preparing for this trip is a bit confusing, as it seems that anyone can do it, and not much gear is needed. Also arriving at the main gate, the park seems something of a Disneyland, with big roads and all you can eat restaurants. The hike is hard, and you should not be disarmed by all this. Train a bit...

A long overdue post. But the arduous-ness of the climb and tough weather (gail wind and torrential rain) is what makes this trek memorable. Do not, i repeat, do not underestimate this mountain. You need to train before coming here. Do stairs climbing (best to carry weights) and running reguarly before you attempt this mountain. Hire a porter (your guide... More

Unfortunately i wasn't able to climb due to the recent earthquake, but still manage to enjoy the scenery and surrounding area around Kinabalu Park and Kundasang. Overnight at one of the resort in Kundasang, and i truly enjoyed the nice cooling weather and quiet peacefulness.

It has always been a dream to attempt to scale Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in South East Asia and I am so honoured to have gotten the chance to. The ascent was not an easy one, and required a lot of training, stamina and mental strength. But the scenic view along every step of the way up to the... More

We came to Borneo during our family holiday to South East Asia. We stayed in Kota Kinabalu for a night and then went on the bus to the beautiful rainforest with the wonderful mountain. We stayed overnight in a small lodge before waking up in the morning to climb the mountain. We had a short bus journey to the bottom... More

At first, I looked at the peak and shouted many impossible words. But in 2008, I managed to set afoot on this mountain. It was rocky and full of trails. But with many guides helping tourist to reach the top, it became an easy task for tourist to choose this destination as their top choice. At the last base camp,... More

The mention of Mount Kinabalu conjures up different images for different people. The highest peak in South East Asia, she stands tall and majestic like a proud Governess overlooking the inhabitants and visitors in the 'land below the winds', Sabah. Due to her history and magnanimity, Kinabalu Park is protected as a World Heritage Site. My trek up this mountain... More

Rest in peace for those who perished. Mount Kinabalu is definitely a magical place. You'd go from tropical rain forest below, to barren landscape near the summit. On the first day, try conserve your energy as much as possible. No rushing. Because the next day is when the real challenge begins. When you wake up at 2am in the morning... More
