Itinerary

Day 1Kota Kinabalu
Arrive at any time.
Day 2Kota Kinabalu/Mount Kinabalu
Travel to Mt Kinabalu. Opt to hike the nature trails, or enjoy an excursion to Poring hot springs and a canopy walk with some free time. Travel to the base of Mt Kinabalu, the highest mountain between the Himalayas and Papua New Guinea. In the afternoon, stretch your legs by exploring the trails around the park or check out the visitor centre.
Day 3Mount Kinabalu
Head off to conquer Mt Kinabalu. During the first day's climb to Laban Rata, enjoy a packed lunch on the way. The hike can take from 5-7 hrs. Indulge in a buffet-style dinner then rest up for an early start to summit the mountain in the morning. Set off early to begin the ascent up Mt Kinabalu. It is not an easy walk, but it is incredibly rewarding. Willpower is the main requirement as it's uphill all the way! Spend the night at Laban Rata in basic mountain huts 3,272m (10,735 ft) above sea level. Turn in early to prepare for the final climb very early in the morning.
