Climbing Mt Kinabalu can be done in 2 days but a more comfortable climb in 3-days are recommended to acclimatise to the altitude and fully enjoy the rich biological diversity - the exotic rare plants, orchids, birds and many more.

While it does not require skills to do the climb, climbers must at least have a basic fitness level. Park regulations require climbers have to engage the services of a registered mountain guide.

The numbers of guides depend on the number of climbers. Porters services are available and recommended. Book and pay for your mountain guide and porter at the Kinabalu Park.

Two trails lead to the top, the Summit Trail and Mesilau Route. The trails meet at Layang-Layang at 2,740m (or Km 4 from Timpohon Gate).
