What is there to do in Borneo? We would choose hangin’ from worlds’ highest via Ferrata as one of the ‘Top 5’ on your holiday itinerary!

Travelling Kota Kinabalu and the surrounding areas of Sabah, our Canadian client Peter Martinello just completed one of the toughest and personally rewarding challenges anyone could experience in Sabah!

The UNESCO designated World Heritage Site, Kinabalu National Park, is home to the mighty Mount Kinabalu, where visitors can participate in via Ferrata mountain climbing activities!

Peter opted to climb the summit trail in our 3D2N itinerary, and both nights he chose to stay at Pendant Hut on the Laban Rata Plateau; with that extra night to acclimatise to that altitude.

Our Sabah Travel Centre experts in Kota Kinabalu checked in with Peter to offer encouragement and any general updates. Peter didn’t feel any altitude sickness whatsoever because after diving at our premier PADI 5 Star Dive Centre, he rested with ample time before starting his climb! Climbing a mountain and scuba diving are ‘two strings from the same thread’, as the effects of these activities push our limits. Although, after studying the required dive theory to qualify as a PADI Enriched Air Diver, under the experienced guidance of one of our dedicated PADI Instructors, Peter was more than prepared on what effects he may experience when climbing Mount Kinabalu!

Contact one of the friendly travel experts at our Kota Kinabalu Head Office and discuss a suitable itinerary to include a few activities in your Sabah adventure…or we can create your entire travels in Borneo!
