Our Borneo Three Peaks Expedition includes the wild and rarely climbed peaks of Mount Api (1750m) and Mount Trusmadi (2642m).
Our first ascent is of Mount Api that we combine with a longboat journey and jungle trek to the Deer Cave, the home to over two million bats which leave the caves almost every afternoon as featured in the BBC series Planet Earth. It is just one of many natural wonders to find in this off-the-beaten trail and tropical paradise!
Moving northwards we continue our programme of acclimatisation on Mount Trusmadi, the second highest mountain in Sabah, a peak extremely rich in flora and fauna. Unlike Mount Kinabalu few tourists venture here and very often you have the mountain to yourself! The sunrise view out towards our main objective Mount Kinabalu is out of this world.
Acclimatised, we can now enjoy the ascent of Mount Kinabalu the highest point between the Himalaya and Iran Jara on the island of Borneo, which was first climbed in 1851 by Sir Hugh Low .
Those with more time available can extend their journey through Borneo with a visit to the Orang Utan sanctuaries at Sepilok, sit in hot springs or head off to a neighboring tropical island.
