People who are bored with regular hiking and want to experience an alternative that will provide them with a true climbing challenge are able to choose the 2D1N Walk the Torq Via Ferrata climb as an alternative to the well-known path to the tallest heights of Mount Kinabalu.
Those who have gone on a Via Ferrata climb on Mt. Kinabalu before know that it is a complete climbing experience. Unlike regular hikes, however, your schedule will be far more densely packed.
First you need to climb the roughly 3300 meters to the Laban Reta huts for your Via Ferrata familiarization, then the tour will continue to the peak of the mountain.
When you see your itinerary for your 2D1N Walk the Torq Via Ferrata, you will likely notice that there won’t be much time for rest between climbs. The hike up to Mount Kinabalu’s summit will start during the night so you can reach your MT trainer to begin the Walk the Torq Via Ferrata climb as early as possible (usually around dawn).
The actual Via Ferrata starts at an altitude of around 3600 meters, just a few hours after you reach Low’s Peak – the highest point of Mount Kinabalu, located at around 4095 meters above sea level.
Like any other Via Ferrata, the Walk the Torq route is basically a steep climb with permanently routed cables for protection. The journey itself is extremely exciting, with steel rungs used on the steepest sections of the climb to make sure that even moderately skilled climbers can enjoy the experience of climbing Mt. Kinabalu’s remarkable rock faces.
The 2D1N Walk the Torq Via Ferrata will offer you one of the few opportunities to observe and delight in some of the rarest and most scenic views of Mount Kinabalu’s less accessible sides that are usually only seen by professional climbers.
