“Climbing Mount Kinabalu 2005”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2005

Mount Kinabalu is the third highest mountain in Southeast Asia, with the highest peak at 4095.2m. The trek is divided into day one and day two starting from the Parks HQ. The climb is relatively ok without the need for climbing mountain gears. We have to embark on the summit climb on day 2 at 0245hrs in order to catch the sunrise. I can assure you - you will never regret it when you see the sunrise and the beautiful clouds below you. You can read more at worldisround.com/articles/165303/index

The mountain road up to Mount Kinabalu, is in places under repair due to land slides, understandable as they get 5 metres, yes 20' of rain per year, avoid the wet season. But the closer you get the draw becomes stronger.
The first full sighting makes everybody go silent. It has a certian something that just demands respect and indeed keeps you wanting to look and stare all day.
Hey, dont take my word for it, go see yourself. Wake up in the morning whilst staying at one of the mountain lodges, pull back the blind and wallop, Mount Kinabalu, bathed in the sunrise, towering some 2500meters above you.
