Borneo, Mount Kinabalu & Jungle Trek

This stunning challenge starts with one days exhilarating white-water rafting down the Padas River. You will then trek for 3-days in the Crocker Range, which forms the backbone to Sabah. It is the largest totally protected area in Sabah, with some of the last remaining areas of West Coast hill dipterocarp forest.

This breathtaking adventure culminates in the highlight of ascending Mount Kinabalu at 4101m, the highest mountain in South-East Asia. Kinabalu has been described as “the most wonderful mountain in the world”. No mountain exceeds Kinabalu in its sheer strength and stark simplicity. Lacking foothills it appears to shoot straight up into the sky. It’s jagged granite peaks floating above the clouds. A tough and exhilarating challenge from start to finish!

Best time of year: May to July

Grade: Tough

Number of days: 9
