The mountains of Malaysia offer climbing challenges to suit all levels of ability, ranging from the strenuous exertion of a 9-day traverse of Gunung Tahan to a relatively gentle trek along the Klang Gates Quartz Ridge.
The country's highest mountain and most popular is Mt. Kinabalu at 4095 meters above sea level and is the tallest mountain in Borneo and one of the highest in South East Asia. Low’s Peak is the highest point and can be climbed without any special gear or training. It is a steep hike that involves the use of some guide ropes scrambling up and down the steepest parts. The hike is tough when done in one day but is richly rewarded by spectacular views.
