Climbing Mount Kinabalu is re-opened to visitors!

Booming popularity in the Crocker Range World Heritage Site of Kinabalu National Park, as climbing Mount Kinabalu is re-opened to visitors!

Any mountain climbing along the Timpohon trail is deemed safe as far as the Laban Rata plateau only – so there’s no program to reach the Lows Peak summit, until specialized inspections are conducted by experts.

Acclimatize to the cooler climate at Kinabalu National Park and visit the nearby attractions – Poring Hot Springs, Botanical Garden and the Canopy Walkway, and with a private nature guide too!

On our 2D1N climb to Laban Rata’s altitude is still the highest accessible point in all of Sabah, at 3,272.7 metres above sea level, and offer picturesque views of the Crocker Range valleys!

Sabah Travel Centre guests Eric and Meghan combined the 3D2N climb to Laban Rata with our 1-Day Kinabalu Park day trip. On the first day of their program, they acclimatize to the cooler climate at Kinabalu National Park and visit the nearby attractions – Poring Hot Springs, Botanical Garden and the Canopy Walkway, and with a private nature guide too!
