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.
