My friend and I climbed Mt Kinabalu in Aug 2017 and loved it! But be warned, lots of people don't love it, so you need to be prepared. That means, get all the right kit and gear ready for the hike, including boots, rain jacket,...More

The hike to the summit was amazing and breathtaking. The park control of the number of hikers makes it even more delightful. A must do, but be prepared for sore legs.

Fantastic trip and definitely worth the effort. Amazing Borneo Tours were excellent and can't speak highly enough of our guide Joseph Kolis. He was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, compassionate and a great companion during our 2 days on the mountain. The climb was definitely tougher than...More

This is a reasonably tough bit of mountain hiking. The ascent profile isn’t friendly, on the first day you go from ~1800m to just over 3000m, well into the range where you will experience the altitude. The next day is a 2am start to summit...More
