Amazing experience. Best moment: reaching the summit.

Vincent was really helpful and thanks for his responsiveness. 

It is not about safety, rather when exhausted , the mussels becomes weak and hence it is necessary to have a walking stick. When the body becomes weak, safety becomes a concerns.

Best Moments: Reaching the peak.. as it requires a lot of mental perseverance and endurance

Exhilarating Experience

Everything went smoothly. Great job!  A couple of our team members could not make it to the summit. On the whole, the experience was memorable.

Excellent service! Needs reasonable fitness to summit. As the path are man-made it is generally safe. However can be slippery if raining.

I was pleasantly surprise by the food arrangement at Mt Kinabalu compared to my previous trip. I underestimated the importance of being fit and strong. The whole trip was enjoyable. But I was most impressed by the improvement at Laban Rata.
