A percentage of the incomes generated by this Tour will be used to aid selected conservation projects in Borneo, including protection of Borneo's endangered wildlife and its environment.
For the more adventurous, there is another way of climbing to the summit - via Ferrata. Mountain Torq Via Ferrata, a mountain path (via ferrata is Italian for iron road) which was opened only recently, has been certified by the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR) as the world's highest and Asia's first.
It is at an altitude of 3,800 metres on the 4,095-metre Mount Kinabalu, Southeast Asia's highest summit.
A via ferrata is basically a long climbing route with permanently fixed cables for protection. Steel rungs are used on steeper sections to keep the difficulty of the climbing moderate.
The Mountain Torq, with various alternative routes, enables people of all ages to enjoy climbing Mount Kinabalu's rock faces, giving them a chance to view the mountain from different angles.
The Mountain Torq Via Ferrata, comprising rungs and cables embracing the mountain's rock face, allows access to scenic sections of the summit normally accessible only to rock climbers and mountaineers.
