Such an amazing accomplishment! Everyone is exhausted when they reach camp near the summit. But the sunrise hike the next morning makes it all worth it! My asthma kicked in with the altitude so it was very difficult for me but I found that the climbers helped others, especially close to the summit! My favorite hike to date!

it was by far the hardest hike I've done. but the reason is that I wasn't in shape when I did this hike. it was quite steep for me and long. but unfortunately when I submitted the mountain, it was cloudy. but it's definitely one of my biggest achievements especially that I wasn't in shape during that time. also did the via ferrata before descending

Did this for my 40th birthday as it had always been on the list. A really wonderful yet challenging hike. It is pretty relentless both up and back, and with the high humidity level was very sweaty. Sadly we missed the via Ferrata and peak at sunrise as it started raining at 1am so they shut the gate. Still the view from the camp above the clouds was spectacular and I’m glad I did it.

A 2 day hike with a stay over in Laban Rata camp before heading off early in the morning to catch the sunrise at Low’s Peak. Beautiful journey thru rainforest with a constantly changing environment, in which plant and animal life varies with changes in elevation. Climbing up Mount Kinabalu and you may notice that the temperatures get colder, tree species change or disappear altogether, and the plants and animal species are different than those found on lower ground. It’s difficult and requires a seasoned hiker or someone whose has been training for the hike.

If you opt the loop trial on the return trip it is recommended to put on glove as protection handling the rope down to the sloppy and slippery terrain.

It was my first hiking trip and it was very memorable. Great experience, rewarded with a superb view at the summit overlooking sunrise.

Have done this twice. Best to hike to lodge, have a meal and sleep, then hike the last part in the dark so you can see the sunrise from the top. Unforgettable experience.

Epic hike up the mountain with gorgeous plant life along the way and incredible views at the summit. There's a lodge near the top where you can grab food and snacks and even spend thr night if you are unable to summit the peak in one day.

Stunning scenery with fairly easy ascend until the resthouse with thousands of stairs and the climb turns tougher towards the peak. Super fun climb def will come again!

Hiking

By far the most rewarding and difficult hike I've ever done. This climb is intense. The main path from Timpohon Gate is only 8.8 km (5.4 miles) one-way, but it goes straight up. There are a number of small stations that provide a spot to rest, eat, and use the bathroom. Almost every tour will have a stop at the Laban Rata guesthouse, which is a surprisingly great guesthouse with good food (which has to be carried up the mountain by porters). The last km of the hike to get to Laban Rata is definitely the hardest for the first day, as it becomes very steep and altitude begins to take its toll. The final stage of the climb is the harshest, as altitude sickness often sets in. You have to fight the wind and cold, and often fog and rain if you're especially unlucky. The path alternates between wooden staircases and bare granite with guiding ropes. The entire summit area has zero cover or protection, so you are at the mercy of the elements. The summit itself is at the top of a tough rocky scramble, and is marked by a fence and a large sign. The view at the top, particularly the sunrise, is amazing. Just make sure you bring lots of warm clothes (gloves and a hat are mandatory).

One of the best experiences of my life. Better bring a warm jacket and gloves because it's really cold at the top (2°C in August)
