Catch the sunrise at Low’s Peak and experience the Walk The Torq route on Mount Kinabalu’s Via Ferrata, the second highest Via Ferrata in the world!
Day 1 – Kota Kinabalu / Kinabalu Park / Timpohon Gate / Pendant Hut / Laban Rata Rest House
Leave Kota Kinabalu for Kinabalu Park which holds the titles of being Malaysia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site and Southeast Asia’s Centre of Plant Diversity. With over 5,000 vascular plant species that can be found at the Park, there is no question why it holds those two proud names. You will find not just plants here; you may also spot any of the 90 lowland mammal species that reside within this natural habitat of Kinabalu Park.
At the Park, you will have all your necessary registration arranged for you and meet your assigned mountain guide tasked with the important responsibility of ensuring that you ascend and descend the mountain with the utmost safety. Once all important procedures have been taken, you will be transferred from the Park to Timpohon Gate to begin your climb. For about 4 to 5 hours, you will trek all the way up to the Laban Rata huts that sit at over 3,000 metres above sea level.
Settle in upon arrival at your accommodation and make some friends with your fellow climbers. There will be a mandatory Via Ferrata safety briefing that should be paid attention to by all, first-timer climbers and experienced mountaineers alike. The briefing will relay to you important information that should be observed and practised on the climb. Get to know your Mountain Torq trainer then walk to Laban Rata restaurant for your dinner.
Day 2 – Pendant Hut / Mount Kinabalu Summit / Low’s Peak / Sayat Sayat Hut / Pendant Hut / Timpohon Gate / Kinabalu Park / Kota Kinabalu
Wake up early while it’s still dark out to have an early supper in preparation for your climb up to Low’s Peak. Commence your journey to the summit that stands at 4,095 metres above sea level. Climb up to the very top just in time to see the sun break through the sky to bathe it in a flurry of colours and light. The view is phenomenal and absolutely worth the tiring climb. Once the sun has stabilized in the sky and the day is bright, descend from Low’s Peak.
Take the Walk the Torq route along Mount Kinabalu’s Via Ferrata, the second highest in the world at 3,200 to 3,800 metres above sea level. This route was designed with beginner climbers in mind so it shouldn’t tire you out too much. It allows for a more leisurely climb that gives climbers the opportunity to access sections of the mountain that are usually only available to experienced mountaineers. After you finish the route, head back down to Laban Rata for breakfast and return to Kinabalu Park after for a buffet lunch at Balsam Restaurant.
