Mount Kinabalu climb
The Mount Kinabalu climb is enlightening adventure from base to summit, one worthy of the greatest nineteenth century naturalists and explorers. From the lush jungle habitat of the orang-utan and the enormous Rafflesia ‘corpse flower’, through the mist-shrouded home of rare orchids, carnivorous plants and exotic birds, and onto the panoramic splendour of the naked granite peak, climbing South East Asia’s tallest mountain not only takes in some of the world’s most biologically diverse zones but a sunrise fit for the gods. After an overnight stay at Laban Rata resthouse, the final scrabble to the 4095 metre summit has you welcome the rising sun atop the peak. Sit elated above pillowy clouds in crisp mountain air and breathe in the coastal curves and folds of a beautiful Borneo below. The best climb and view in South East Asia.
