Mount Kinabalu Climbing Fees

Everyday some 150 persons will take up the challenge to conquer the summit of Kinabalu, the highest Mountain in South East Asia. Even at a height of 4,095 metres, no special climbing skill is needed to complete the task, just an eager heart and a healthy body will do. On average climbers will take two days to complete the journey, and those who make it to the top at Low's Peak will be rewarded with a breath-taking sunrise view. Mount Kinabalu is also a World Heritage Site.

Diving Quota at Sipadan

Resorts and Lodges that have allocation of permits by Sabah Park to dive at Sipadan Island.A long time ago go diving at Sipadan Island is a straight forward thing. You can dive at the island as long as you feel happy. And as long as you can afford the fee. Today this is not the case any more. Since 2005 when the conservation of the island started, Sabah Park only allows 120 persons, including divers and snorkellers, to visit Sipadan Island on a single day. Permit costs RM 40 per day.
