Mount Kinabalu - Borneo

The climb of Mount Kinabalu is a straightforward trekking experience which can be accomplished in a one or two night trip, an easy add on from a stay in one of the beach resorts in Sabah.

The trek involves a 6 hour walk from the Kinabalu park entrance and an overnight stay at Laban Rata hut, at 3,000 metres. From Laban Rata it is an early start (2 am) for the final trek to the summit in time for a spectacular sunrise.

Mount Rinjani - Lombok

Mount Rinjani looks deceptively easy but is still not a trek to be taken too lightly. Two nights are required on the mountain which is over 3,700 m high, so not too far short of the height of Borneo's Mount Kinabalu.

The views from the summit over Lombok and the volcanoes of Bali can be absolutely stunning. The crater lake on the way up is a great spot for a nights' camp.

As there are no huts on the mountain, camping is the only option on Mt Rinjani.
