Via Ferrata Routes


Even if you have climbed Mt Kinabalu before, you really need to climb it again just so that you can attempt the Low’s Peak Circuit! Traversing the mountain in this manner means that you get to see an entirely different and immensely beautiful side of the plateau that the current summit trail will never reveal to you.


At 3,521m asl, this initiation route is designed with the beginner in mind. It is a leisurely 2–3 hour route, and a shorter commitment than that of the Low’s Peak Circuit. If you feel that you want a little taste of the Via Ferrata experience but do not wish to expend too much energy on it (you still have to climb back down the mountain, after all!), the Walk the Torq route would be best for you


Mountain Torq provides simply furnished sleeping quarters at its two huts on Mt Kinabalu, which have been specially reserved for our guests. Pendant Hut is also the location of our Mountain Top Sales Office and where our MANDATORY pre-activity briefings are held BETWEEN 3PM and 4PM DAILY Check in time : 2pm to 4pm Check out time : before 12:00pm

What our customers say

The best part about the whole adventure is when you’re back home showing off your eye-popping photos to friends: ‘yeah, look at that shot of me dangling off the edge…I’m so hardcore…’

Lonely Planet

I was very apprehensive about this climb as I have a fear of heights- acctually only booked it because no regular peak permits were available… but after enjoying the peak ascent/descent so much I decided to go for it! I haven’t done anything like this before & enjoyed most of it apart from the last (after the ladder) that was very challenging. However, all in all a good experience & I’m glad I did it!

Ceri Linton United Kingdom

Via Ferrata was a wonderful experience to enjoy the scenery from the cliff face and the guides were very patient and profesional.
