View of Mt Kinabalu

Kinabalu Park is located in central Sabah on the Corker Range. The main attraction of the park is, of course, Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South-East Asia at 4100 metres. The granite massif dominates the surrounding landscape. The park is a paradise for naturalists, botanists bird watchers and those who admire nature. There are 11 km of marked and graded trails at the Park Headquarters, many of which cut across the mountain forest vegetation. The higher you climb, the less dense the forest becomes. The Silau Silau trail is the easiest and perhaps the most beautiful.

Dawn on Mt. Kinabalu

Guided tours to the summit of Mt Kinabalu take two days for the average tourist to the area. On a clear morning it is possible to see to the Philippines from the summit. Be warned – the second day begins at 03.00 hrs.

A certain degree of fitness is, of necessity, a pre-requisite for the summit trek!!
