If the idea of conquering a mountain while travelling excites you, then this five-day round trip journey from Kota Kinabalu is for you. At 4,096m (13,438 ft), Mt Kinabalu is the highest mountain in Malaysia and has been given UNESCO World Heritage status. With up to 6,000 species of plants, 326 species of birds, and more than 100 mammalian species identified, it’s easy to understand why. This tour includes some beautiful treks, and the sunrise from Mt Kinabalu’s summit might make you question every other sunrise you’ve witnessed before it. But don’t take our word for it; make sure you see it for yourself.
