The highest mountain in Southeast Asia, Mount Kinabalu, is a rewarding and manageable climb for anyone who’s reasonably fit. A limited number of permits are issued each day so the well-maintained trail is never over-crowded. Watching the sunrise at 4,095 meters with clouds below you is a spectacular sight and the sense of accomplishment as you sit atop the mountain will stay with you long after your holiday ends.
We’ve combined the trek with a chance to see some of Borneo’s other highlights including orangutans, proboscis monkeys, a turtle hatchery, and the clear blue waters of the South China Sea. For even the fittest hikers, a few days of rest following the climb are a welcome reward so we’ve selected a glorious boutique resort on Gaya Island but can offer a number of other options. One reason we like this choice is that if your knees are too wobbly to descend the hill from your villa to the beach, the staff will happily send the buggy for you!
Please remember this itinerary is here to inspire you as all of our holidays are tailor-made to suit you. We’re happy to add or subtract days or destinations and adjust as you see fit.
