Mt Kinabalu itself is rather risky to climb, especially in the dark. The Via Ferrata is a nice idea, but in practice is contrived and tedious nonsense. It is also unsafe, in a boring rather than thrilling way - I got several gashes on my torso after falling over in the jungle section of the long walk. A huge waste... More

They take their training and saftey seriously! If you miss out on the training brief the day before... you can't do it. If you miss the start time... you can't do it. If the guides think you don't have the energy to complete it (and then the decent down the mountain)... you can't do it. If its raining... you can't... More

The accommodation is great and water heater is available for shower which is great! The dorm room is comfy with sleeping bag. The staff is very professional and the american breakfast is good. The safety brefing is clear. Reach the summit before 6am but unfortunately the weather is not good so there is no sunrise.The highlight is the via ferrata... More

Offered as part of the mountain climbing experience--climb up and the take the via ferrata down--we thoroughly enjoyed the views and excitement of descending down huge open rock faces. The long route is several hours of moving along the steel cables on the way back to the mid-mountain hut

Great position on the peak - providing a top notch via ferrata experience in a fabulous high altitude experience! MT provides qualified via ferrata guides, traversing a solidly placed via ferrate route ( 2 options); and a great private mountain refuge modelled after alpine huts in the Alps

Arrived here in freezing rain soaked to the skin to find no heater not even any dry floor area. There was no hot water in the showers with water from the mountain running across the floor. Managed to dry of still freezing to be told we had to walk down to the other hut for food! They gave us some... More

Our climb was on 21May2015. In conclusion we couldn't make it for the ferrata mandatory briefing session and the money we paid was absorbed with no services rendered. 3 factors dealt us down on our way up. Firstly, there was rain most of our way up, sometimes quite heavy. Secondly, one out of three of us was slower and we... More

My 3rd time climbing the mountain and this time decided to taste the thrill of the Low's Peak Circuit and it was the most thrill and adventure activity that I have ever done in my life. The instructor was waiting with all the equipment as soon as we descend from the summit to the starting point at 3776m. We quickly... More
