A Mount Kinabalu climb is a tremendous opportunity to stay in the best physical shape, no matter what your age is, as long as you are young at heart. Moreover, the splendid view deserves all the effort, because once you reach the top you will feel like “the King of the World”, as they say in a famous movie.
Located in the county of Sabah, on the Malaysian island of Borneo, it is the highest mountain in the whole South-Eastern Asia, also being considered the region’s crown jewel. Its reputation is based on the ten thousands tourists who come here every year, attracted by the beauty of the natural landscape and the climb itself.
When it comes to the climb, you should know that it has a long tradition. The first European that climbed up the mountain was Sir Hugh Law, in 1851, although he did not reach the peak. This was achieved by the naturalist John Whitehead, many years later, when the amazing unique species of animals and plants existing in this area were discovered.
If you want to be in the best of shapes and you are interested in a Mount Kinabalu climb, it is better to do this in the spring, ideally in April. Although the official spoken languages in this area are Malaysian and Chinese, you will have no problems with finding qualified guides, who know every route and speak English almost fluently.
As for the equipment, you have to find the most appropriate one for this kind of activity, but light enough for it not to be an obstacle in your climb. However, if you are not sure what to choose, there are many places in this area from where you can rent absolutely everything you need for this expedition, at decent prices.
A Mount Kinabalu climb is a unique experience that you definitely must try if you are planning a holiday on the beautiful island of Borneo.
