Viv's Mount Kinabalu Guide - Part 2

I did mentioned that the next post would be on what to expect during the climb, but I think you should know how much is required for the climb prior to the climb, and thus part 2 is....

Part 2 - Plan Your Budget

1. You are climbing the Summit Trail (Timpohon - Peak - Timpohon)
2. You are climbing with 3 other friends
3. Accommodations are budget hostels
4. Food are excluded
5. Calculations is based on Malaysia Ringgit (MYR)
6. Foreigner did not take the porter service & rental of walking stick

I did the calculations for both Malaysians & foreigner.

* for non-heated rooms, their rates are RM30 for M'sian, and RM46 for foreigner

The above climbing fees are provided by Sabah Park, go here for more info. As for the accommodation rates, please refer to Sutera Sanctuary Lodges.

For those who did not bring food, you can order the packed lunch from the Park HQ for the day climb (which i forgot how much it cost, sorry..). At Laban Rata, a plate of fried rice will cost about RM15, but the portion is big, so you can share between 2 person =)
