I guess, the hike itself was so overwhelming that the rooms, the foods and the transportation being mediocre was totally overlooked.

Sometimes we underestimate the climb up Mount Kinabalu. Even though the hike was tiring but at least it rewarded us with good memories and an extraordinary view.:) We do hope you made some unforgettable memories while overcoming the mountain.

A whole new mountaineering/trekking experience with Mount Kinabalu, accompanied with superb mountain guide from Borneo Calling. Experienced great water activities as well with Borneo Calling. The guide that followed us throughout was very friendly and hospitable.

The trip for 2days and 1 night was absolutely impeccable from Borneo calling.. The best part is being a solo traveller I had a personal mountain guide. For an amazing and safe travel experience I recommend Borneo calling services to my fellow travellers.👍👍
