Courageously hanging off the worlds’ highest via Ferrata, are our West Malaysian guests Ken Sun Ng and Yee Min Ng!

In their 2 day 1 night climb Mount Kinabalu itinerary, which our Sabah Travel Centre arranged for them, they also participated in the thrilling mountain climbing activity: Lows Peak circuit via Ferrata!

This via Ferrata is very special because it’s the highest in the world, so owns the Guinness World Record title for its astounding height at 3,776m.

Yee Min and Ken needed to reach the Laban Rata plateau between 2-4pm for the health and safety briefing conducted by via Ferrata trainers, who will also demonstrate and provide practise time on the system of cable ropes and carabiner clips. They made it in time for the briefing, and were fortunate to not only descend the worlds’ highest via Ferrata, but also walk one of the worlds’ highest suspension bridges, located at 3,600 metres above sea level!

After their exceptional bravery on the advanced Lows Peak via Ferrata circuit, the couple are really looking forward to continue their diver education at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre in Kota Kinabalu’s TAR marine park. They’ll take a days’ rest in between the activities though; but if they’d like, they could go diving because it’s safe after climbing to altitude!
