Climbing the Via Ferrata on Mount Kinabalu

No reviews, be the first!

The summit of Mount Kinabalu is one of the highest points in the Malay Archipelago, and it is famously easy to ascend. The typical route takes just a few days, and there are clearly marked paths, fixed ropes and stairs that make the journey feasible for anyone other than the very young, aged or infirm. There is also perfectly adequate, dormitory-style lodging roughly two-thirds of the way up the mountain. If you’re really looking for a challenge, however, and you’re not a seasoned climber, try tackling the summit “via ferrata” (Italian for “iron road”), a mountain route equipped with fixed cables, stemples, ladders and bridges that would otherwise only be accessible to experienced climbers.
