Begin your journey to Mount Kinabalu

Embark on a thrilling 2-day, 1-night journey to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Borneo. The first leg of your climb starts at the Timpohon Gate and takes about 4-5 hours.

Enjoy the sunrise from the summit

Have dinner and stay overnight at the Laban Rata Rest House at 3,272 m, offering stunning mountain views. The next day, embark on a challenging hike to the summit, where you may witness the glorious sunrise if the weather permits. You will rejoice in your accomplishment upon reaching the peak and take advantage of the pre-dawn chill to capture stunning reflection photos in a nearby water pond. Make sure to keep yourself warm in the cold mountain air.
