Mt Kinabalu, Tallest Peak in Southeast Asia

Mount Kinabalu, also known as 'Aki Nabalu' or 'the revered place of the dead' by the Kadazan-Dusun (a local tribe), is the highest peak in Southeast Asia soaring 4,095 metres above sea level at it's highest point. 

It is also a UNESCO World Heritage site; the mountain and its surrounding regions are home to more than 5,000 species of plants, 326 species of birds and more than 100 identified mammalian species. Particularly famous is the gigantic Rafflesia plant and Orangutans.

Climbers do not require specialized equipment to scale the mountain along its main route - a good pair of hiking shoes and appropriate warm, wet-weather gear is all you need to make it to the summit. Accommodations at Laban Rata basecamp (3,270 metres above sea level) are basic but clean and comfortable (dormitory-style) and hot-buffet awaits climbers upon checking in at basecamp.

For thrill-seekers, there's the world's highest Via Feratta ('Iron Way / Road' in Italian), a protected mountain path comprising a series of rungs, rails and cables secured to the rock face that allows access to some of the most scenic sections of the mountain. Climbers can now experience the excitement of mountaineering in a safe and controlled environment; a proper system of routes, devices coupled with patient, friendly and highly trained guides allows anyone to undertake this exciting challenge in the safest of conditions. This is one story you don't want to miss out on!

One can fly in from any part of Malaysia via the many local airlines or directly into Kota Kinabalu on China Southern, Singapore Airlines, SilkAir or Royal Brunei Airlines. After that it's but a quick 2-hour journey by road to Kinabalu Park Headquarters and the start of your exciting journey.
