    Poring Hot Springs is near the base of Mt Kinabalu. Known for its healing hot springs, Poring is a perfect spot to relax. Try the canopy walk, trek to some waterfalls, visit a butterfly farm or soak in the hot springs.
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!

Included Activity
  • Mount Kinabalu Hike- Day 1
    Duration : 5.0 hr - 7.0 hr
    Distance : 8 km
    Altitude can affect anyone, no matter how fit. The key to success with altitude is to drink plenty of water, take your time and enjoy the pristine environment. There's no rush on this hike.

    Main bags will stay in storage and you'll only need to carry a small overnight bag with items you require on the hike. For an additional charge, you can hire a porter to carry your bag. The porters charge per weight.

    If for any reason, you are separated from the group higher on the mountain, there is a thick white rope all the way to the summit. If visibility is very low, it may be necessary to hold onto the rope and follow it. The rope leads all the way from the vegetation belt above Panar Laban to the summit. The weather on the summit can deteriorate very quickly, with thick mist reducing visibility to 3m, rain storms and strong winds can also occur at times. When climbing on the summit and the higher part of the mountain, it's important to have sufficient warm clothes, a head lamp/torch, spare batteries, waterproof rain coat, food and water.
Summit Mt Kinabalu (3-5hrs) and arrive in time for sunrise. Return to Laban Rata for a rest and to the park headquarters for lunch. Transfer back to Kota Kinabalu.
