Tour Details

Turn your vacation in Borneo into a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
With the Mount Kinabalu Climb Package 3D2N you will reach the top of Southeast Asia’s tallest peak standing at 4,095 metres, hiking through the different vegetation zones from lowland tropical rainforest, to cloud forest until alpine meadows.

Mount Kinabalu Climb is one of Borneo’s most memorable experiences. The early morning hike up to the top of the mountain is certainly not the easiest way to start the day, but the stunning sight of the sunrise over the rainforest is a reward for all that hard work.

Although it’s possible to climb Mount Kinabalu all year round, the best time is during Sabah’s driest season, from March until August.
In this period you will have more chances to watch a beautiful sunrise from the top of the mountain.


  • Climb the majestic Mount Kinabalu, the highest peak in Borneo which boasts the richest and most diverse assemblages of plants in the world.
  • Witness an epic sunrise from the summit of Mount Kinabalu that makes the entire trek worth the while.
  • See the endemic Nepenthes Rajah, a carnivorous pitcher plant that grows only in Kinabalu Park and it’s capable to eats insects and small mammals.
