Mount Kinabalu
Conquer the highest mountain in Malaysia – the majestic Mount Kinabalu, a top tourist attraction in Sabah, North Borneo where every year, runners from different parts of the world come to challenge one another in an international marathon dubbed “The World’s Toughest Mountain Race” www.climbathon.my (height of the highest peak – Low’s Peak @ 4,095 m / 13,435 ft above sea level).
Kinabalu National Park is a UNESCO designated world heritage site covering a protected area of 754 sq km (75,370 hectares) surrounding Mount Kinabalu.  It is administered by the state government through Sabah Parks and one of their protocols requires that hikers must be accompanied by accredited mountain guides.
Any person even those with no mountaineering skills or experiencecan attempt this adventure to reach the summit.  However, it is vital that you are in a good state of health both mentally and physically particularly in terms of stamina and endurance.
There are two main starting points for the hike:
  1. Timpohon Trail – 6.5 km, more popular and common route
  2. Mesilau Trail – 8.5 km, more scenic and interesting
The hiking trails will pass through lowland dipterocarp forest, montane and sub-alpine meadow zones. For overnight packages, hikers will stay one night at Laban Rate (3,272 m / 11,000 ft above sea level) to rest and recharge before continuing the final ascent at 02:30 a.m. for the toughest partof the hike to reach the summit.
At Laban Rata there are several mountain lodges with bathroom facilities of which only Laban Rata Rest House has a restaurant, 3 units of private heated rooms and dormitories.  The other lodges are basic mountain huts: Gunting Lagadan Hut, Panar Laban Hut, and Waras Hut offers only dormitories with bunk beds, basic cooking facilities, and common bathrooms.  All accommodation types come with full board meals.
