This 3-day adventure will give climbers a chance at an adventure of a lifetime - scaling the heights and the face of the mighty Mt Kinabalu on the world's highest Via Ferrata (Italian for 'Iron Way / Road) 3,776 metres above sea-level.
It will also give climbers ample time to not only enjoy the surrounding area of Kinabalu National Park but to also acclimatize to the altitude and get some much needed rest before ascending the mountain
The majestic peaks of Mt. Kinabalu rising 4,095 metres above sea-level are a marvel to behold from the valley floor and the feeling is absolutely euphoric upon reaching it's summit. The hike starts from Timpohon Gate (1,866 metres above sea-level) and takes approximately 4-6 hours to Laban Rata Basecamp with the final hike to the summit starting at 2:00 am the next day (and if you're on time you'll be there just before sunrise).
The adventure continues after sunrise; climbers don their specialized Mountain Torq gear to traverse the face of the mountain armed only with ropes and their wits. Suitable for both first-timers and professionals alike, climbers have the option of choosing the 'Walk the Torq' route or the much longer, much higher 'Low's Peak Circuit' route.
Climbers are assigned to a group of up to 3, each group with it's very own friendly, very highly trained Mountain Torq Trainer. Depending on the route and the composition of the group, climbers will take anywhere between 2-5 hours to make it back to Laban Rata Basecamp using the Via Ferrata. Make sure your GoPros and cameras are charged and ready - this is one view you're NOT going to want to miss!
