International guests Alex and Brioni climb up to Low’s Peak on Mount Kinabalu and descended part of the way via Ferrata on the Walk the Torq circuit!

Our standard climbing Mount Kinabalu packages can be integrated with via Ferrata activities, one of which is the highest via Ferrata in the world, at 3, 776m above sea level.

Alex and Brioni reached the summit with the guidance of their private Kinabalu National Park mountain guide. After admiring the sunrise, they followed their guide to the starting point of the Walk the Torq circuit to meet their experienced via Ferrata trainer.

From 3, 520m, the three followed along crossing methods, such as balancing beams, the Tyrolean Traverse and a few monkey bridges too!

Walk the Torq is a basic 2-3 hour journey aimed toward beginner climbers who are ages 10 and above with average fitness levels. It’s very popular, because climbers don’t need to reach the summit to participate, unlike the advanced Low’s Peak via Ferrata circuit!

Contact our Sabah travel experts for more information on climbing to Low’s Peak and we can individually cater one of our convenient packages to suit your Borneo adventure!
