“Hardest thing I've ever done”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

The climb was very difficult. I also suffered from side effects from Malarone (anti-malaria pills), which made things worse. I don't recommend you take the pills...the risk of getting malaria here isn't high enough to warrant taking the pills. Also, pack layers of clothes, rent a walking stick (it will be the best 10 RM you ever spend), and invest in well-fitting hiking boots. Oh, and you can check your luggage that you don't want to bring up for 10 RM at the base. Well worth it.

“Wonderful Trip To KK”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

It is a good to relax at KK but they need to put up more sign board for the tourist attraction places so that it is easier for traveller to find the place around. The place that you must mot miss is the KK park. But need to go earlier the journey is quite far. After the KK Park must head to Pori Pori Hot Spring. Well this is a interesting place that you must not miss since the hot spring there are a bit diffrent since the small pool for each family or individual. Another place of interest is the Mori Mori Culture Village. This is a must since the dancer there are great. Lastly do not miss the seafood there it is marvelous.

Mount K, Manager at Mount Kinabalu, responded to this review, October 24, 2011
It is wonderful to know that you had a wonderful Amazing Borneo trip! Your naming to these attractions are very interesting. For the benefit of the other readers, we should call Mount Kinabalu instead of Mount Kota Kinabalu. Poring Hotspring instead of Pori Pori Hotspring. Mari Mari Cultural Village instead of Mori Mori Cultural Village. We hope to see you back again!
