TRAILS TO THE TOP

Climbing Mount Kinabalu can be done in 2 days but a more comfortable climb in 3-days is recommended to acclimatise to the altitude and fully enjoy the rich biological diversity - the exotic rare plants, orchids, birds and many more. While it does not require special skills to do the climb, you must at least have the basic fitness level. Park regulations require climbers have to engage the services of a registered mountain guide. The numbers of guides depend on the number of climbers. Porter services are available and recommended. Book and pay for your mountain guide and porter at the Kinabalu Park.

 
 
 

DO'S & DON'TS

 

In keeping with local customs (adapt) and Sabah Parks rules, climbers are advised not to take anything from and on the mountain, be it flora, fauna or piece of stones etc. Climbers? are to behave respectfully and be on good behavior: shouting, name callings, anger and teasing-fooling-around are not advisable.
