Cost to Climb Mount Kinabalu

Cost to climb Mount Kinabalu presented below would only cover cost at the Mountain not involve your flight ticket or transportation from Kota Kinabalu to Kinabalu Park. This is based on specific cost involved such as permit, insurance, guide etc.. this tabulate is available at Sabah Park Website and SSL (the private operator who manage accomodation at Laban Rata (since 2006 if not mistaken). As SSL control hut at Laban Rata area, by hook or by crook you all have to go through them if you want to stay at Laban Rata which is what the normal climb would be (first night sleep at Laban Rata and summit attempt at wee hour of the morning).. Otherwise just plan for a stay at various hut on the ganite plateau such as Gurkha Hut - for this you just have to go through Sabah Park but that means a longer journey overpass Laban Rata and you have to bring up your own cooking stove, ration, sleeping mat/bag - in other word; it means a lot more stuff and a lot more weight. If you opt for SSL package which is already cover all the cost tabulate below plus profit and plus whatever else.. that would come with amount such as RM486 for 3 day 2 night package [1 night at Rock Hostel and 1 night at Gunting Lagadan Hut (Laban Rata area)] . Different hut would have different charge - the most exclusive of all is Laban Rata Hut, if you stay here you would have the convenience of nice cafe in the same building.. Try to ask for one night package, that would be cheaper but you have to arrange for different accomodation at first night. there are some hostel available just outside Kinabalu Park.. SSL not published their rate at their website which is a kind of weird.. so you have no choice but to contact them directly by phone
