High altitude climbing on outstanding granite.

Description

Mount Kinabalu is a mountain in Sabah, Malaysia. Kinabalu is the highest peak in Borneo's Crocker Range and is the highest mountain in the Malay Archipelago as well as the highest mountain in Malaysia.[1] Mount Kinabalu's summit (known as Low's Peak) is at 4,095 metres (13,435 ft) above sea level.

Access issues

All climbs are located on the exceptional granite within the Mount Kinabalu National Park (as well as UNESCO World Heritage Site) in the north of the island.

Approach

From Kota Kinabalu, the capital city of the Sabah region, your operator will drive you two hours to Kinabalu park HQ where you will register your presence on the mountain with the authorities. Once all the paperwork is finished you will be provided with a name tag and a mountain guide, and start your journey up to the huts where you will spend your first night.
