Have you heard of Mt. Kinabalu? Many travelers head to Sabah, Borneo to hike Southeast Asia’s second tallest mountain, Mt. Kinabalu. The journey begins at the national park headquarters, where hikers spend a night resting before beginning the summit. The hike to the summit spans two days. Day 1 is a 6-km trek uphill to basecamp, called Laban Rata. Once completed (usually about 4-5 hours), hikers rest before a 2 a.m. wakeup. Day 2 is a 3-km climb done in the dark to reach the summit for sunrise. Along the way, you’ll get to know your porters and mountain guides, many who compete in the annual competition to and from the summit. The current record at 2 hours 21 minutes … that’s how long it took my group to do just the first 3 km! Would you summit this mountain?
