I walked up on 18th & 19th August 2018 with my husband and two teenage boys aged 14 and 16. Because one son was under 15 we needed two guides which did make it a bit more expensive. My husband is super fit and does...More

Low cloud cover kept messing with our admittedly poor photographic skills, by the time you get ready, the clouds move to wreck your view. There is no doubt that this is an awesome view, but be patient.

Have always like the drive up to the foot hills of Mount Kinabalu. The scenery is awesome and the air is so very clean and fresh. The view of Mt Kinabalu from the Desa Cattle farm is truly spectacular. Not to be missed

I climbed Mt Kinabalu during my trip to Kota Kinabalu. My fitness level is relatively good for my age (late 40's) though I am not an experienced trekker. The conclusion first, it is true that anybody can climb this mountain as a mountain guide leads...More

Hi Dan No, they don’t recommend to take a flight on the same day you complete the climb. At least a day’s rest. The hike is so beautiful. Enjoy your climb👍😎🇩🇰
