Group travel is fast becoming a popular form of adventure travel; so is the question: How many Mount Kinabalu guides does it take to guide groups? The answer depends on the number of group participants.

Once again, one of our Expedition Borneo groups are about to begin their climb to Lows’ Peak at 4,095 metres, but not without the care and supervision of licensed and experienced Kinabalu National Park guides.

For the 20-strong Expedition Borneo group currently climbing the summit trail, they have 4 guides escorting them to ensure their health and safety from Timpohon Gate to the Laban Rata Plateau. They also have an exciting Walk The Torq via Ferrata circuit climbing activity when they descend from the summit after sunrise the following day. During the activity, via Ferrata trainers will take over their health and safety, as their experience is specific to that.

All adventure activities in Expedition Borneo include pre-trip orientations and safety briefings, which addresses any possible risks involved though are very unlikely to occur. Risk assessment and planning play very important roles in adventure activities such as mountain climbing, white water rafting at Padas River, or learning scuba on the PADI Open Water Diver course!
