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

  • It is worth it, I was fortunate enough to go when the weather was clear. Preparation is key! and get whatever competitive advantage you can get. Wear your knee braces, get a pair of good hiking shoes and get some hiking poles. You will definitely survive without the above tools but your knees and legs won't thank you for them. I have bad knees and by taking it slow with the poles, I was pain free and was running about the next day. As many have said before, the descent is hard part. Take your time on the ascent so not to strain you knees.

  • Mount Kinabalu is a trek that all people should have on their bucket list. I will not lie to you. If you are not fit, you will struggle but no matter what you will still make it. It’s a worth while challenge with amazing views and once you make it to the top, I promise that you will feel proud of your self and your accomplishment.

  • This mountain has given me the best two days in my life. I am 53 years old. I could see such a landscape! I climbed on December 29, 2017. Rain often occurs every day, good performance rain gear is a necessity item.I enjoyed interacting with other climbers very much.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful place for travellers who love nature and its so much history on this place..I enjoyed so much when I was here last year.
