2D/1N Mount Kinabalu Package


Those who would consider choosing the 2D1N Mount Kinabalu package will find a truly challenging vacation waiting for them. As you will see, however, the effort of climbing up one of the two routes to the 4095m high peak will be well worth it when you see the majestic view from the top of the Mt. Kinabalu summit.

You will find the itinerary for the 2D1N Mount Kinabalu package to be quite straightforward: On the first day, you will be taken directly from your hotel room across the near 90 km distance to the Kinabalu HQ, where you will be required to register, check in your permit and make sure every detail is properly taken care of before engaging the climb.

You can choose between two main paths to one of the Laban Rata rest houses where you’ll be spending your night (at an altitude of about 1800m above sea level). Each of the climbs are quite difficult, although the Mesilau Gate path is slightly more challenging as it covers 8.5 km, compared to the 6.5 km of the Timpohon Gate path.

Also, you can expect your journey to last about 7-8 hours before you reach the rest houses where you can relax and enjoy an inclusive buffet dinner.

The following day, right after breakfast, you can expect to see the true beauty of Mt. Kinabalu as you begin your 2.5 km journey to the peak, located more than 4,000 km above sea level.

The majestic view of the Mount Kinabalu summit is only exceeded in beauty by the landscape and the fascinating, exotic wildlife that can be observed during the climb. The higher altitude will provide you with an even richer natural experience than what you will find by simply exploring the botanical garden and some of the regions of the Kinabalu National Park.

You will find the 2D1N Mount Kinabalu package to be one of the most complete climbing experiences you have ever engaged in, with each new step being one of the building blocks of a totally unique adventure.
