Take a detour from your climb up to the summit and challenge yourself by undertaking the Via Ferrata, officially the highest iron road in the world. This Guinness World Record activity is divided into categories of differing difficulties, with Walk the Torq being suitable for beginners and the harder Low's Peak Circuit fitting those with more experience. This 3D2N package will also allow you to stay an extra night at Kinabalu Pine Resort or similar to help you acclimatise before the climb and minimise altitude sickness.
For amateur climbers, you might want to opt for the non-via Ferrata 3D2N Mount Kinabalu package and you will descend back using the normal route.
