About Mount Kinabalu, Kota Kinabalu

Climb up to this highest mountain between the Himalayas and the island of New Guinea. In the Malaysian language, this mountain is called as Gunung Kinabalu and is quite unlike any other on earth as it rises almost twice as high of its Crocker Range neighbors. While hiking towards its peak you shall come across several fine walking trails in the rainforest at the base of the mountain where the climate is agreeably cool than the coastal base. Even though you might not wish to climb the mountain, you can admire its beauty from most of the parts of Sabah, Kota Kinabalu and the islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park.

Mount Kinabalu, Kota Kinabalu Reviews

  • One of the must do list. Beautiful breathtaking view ❤ do not underestimate. It's really hard to get good slots, book a year earlier for groups unless travel solo.

  • This mountain has given me the best two days in my life. I climbed on December 29, 2017. Rain often occurs every day, good performance rain gear is a necessity item.

  • A memorable and beautiful journey to be remembered. Satisfaction to the Max. Time spent with nature are never a waste! Fall in love with the view, completely breathtaking and sacred feelings on the top. It's one of Gods mercy for human being.

  • If you are anywhere in Malaysia/ Sabah, you gotta climb up Mount Kinabalu. It will be the best thing you ever did in your life for sure. But let me warn you - it is not a walk in the park!! There are 2 parts to the climb. The 1st part consist of 6.5 km of walk though terrains of endless steps and rocky roads. It is best if you have a good stamina and reasonably fit to avoid over exertion of yourself. There are many websites thats says you need energy bar and chocolates etc. But honeslty you do not need much of that. If you have eaten a reasonably good breakfast - egg, toast. You should be able to last through the 6.5 km as your package will also provide lunch. Only advice get lotsa liquid and energy drinks. If it rains it may slow down your 1st part of the climb but otherwise it should be bearable. The 2nd part of the climb is more challenging due to the weather condition. A thick jacket with a good hood and thick socks and gloves will be good enough to protect you from the cold. As long as you are moving, the temperature will be alright. If you plan to catch the sunrise you will be climbing at about 2am, thus, bring a trustworthy headlight (LED preferred as i brought a normal headlight which busted halfway through the climb and I had to rely on the source of light from other climbers). The worst part of the climb is coming down the mountain. Walk down sideways to avoid jamming your knees and toes too much. Overall, the hike to the peak is worth every endurance you have to face through the 8.5km climb. Take in the view.

  • Beautiful mountain. But do definitely work out before climbing the mountain to enjoy the spectacular views
