Day 1 Kota Kinabalu
Arrive in Borneo and make your own way to your accommodation, where you'll meet your tour leader and fellow travellers.
Day 2 Kota Kinabalu to Kiulu Homestay
Enjoy a full day of cycling, using backroads through plantations and along jungle tracks. There are some challenging hills to get the blood pumping and a support vehicle in reserve, just in case! Tonight you'll stay with a local family at homestay accommodation.
Day 3 Kiulu Homestay to Tanak Nabalu Homestay
Travel by road to the traditional Tanak Nabalu homestay, in an area which is home to the Dasun people. The afternoon will be free to hike some short trails in the surrounding forest.
Day 4 Mount Kinabalu
Drive to the base of this mighty mountain and trek from Timpohon Gate to Laban Rata. The trek passes through different vegetation zones, eventually changing to alpine only vegetation. Enjoy a buffet dinner tonight and settle in for the evening before tomorrow's summit attempt.
Day 5 Mount Kinabalu
Rise early - very early - and start your attempt on the summit. The climb is around 4 hours and if the weather is clear, the views are sensational. Descend part way down the mountain and begin your exciting Via Ferrata course before continuing to Poring Hot Springs for an overnight stay.
Day 6 Poring Hot Springs
The perfect place to relax after Mount Kinabalu. Enjoy a lie in before a leisurely walk to Laganan waterfall, looking out for butterflies en route. In the afternoon, there's free time to soak in the hot springs.
Day 7 Poring Hot Springs to Kota Kinabalu
Transfer back to Kota Kinabalu and enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.
Day 8 Tunku Abdul Marine Park
Jump on board a boat and head out to Manukan Island for a kayaking adventure. The crystal clear waters are beautiful and there's plenty of opportunities to stop for snorkelling in this rich environment. Head back to Kota Kinabalu for the evening.
