The wet’n’wild action for white water rafting on Padas River is one of the most thrilling day trips for Expedition Borneo in Sabah!

Sabah Travel Centre expert Lulu supervises our 20-strong adventure group to the swirling rapids of the mighty river nearby Beaufort town, which is a 2-hour drive and 30-minute train ride from Kota Kinabalu city centre.

All of our clients agree it’s a long way to go, as do they agree that they would repeat the adventure many times over because the experience of rafting the incredible rapids is truly amazing! On the International Scale of River Difficulty, Padas River is classed at Grade III & IV, which requires quick, fast and expert maneuveres – needless to say, it’s exhilarating!

It’s a breath of fresh air to experience a 1-day adventure, especially after their last activity: climbing Mount Kinabalu! In our 2D1N standard climbing Mount Kinabalu package, the thrill is different. Accomplishing the epic climb is one, as is the view of the Crocker Range being lit up by the sunrise from the Low’s Peak summit!

If someone wanted to learn more about themselves, they need to seek those experiences, such as climbing Mount Kinabalu that pushes personal limits!

For our most recent adventure group on our Expedition Borneo program, they have experienced so many activities that are totally far from their comfort zone, which broadens their minds to receive a unique education.

Seeing the real lifestyle of others from a completely different walk of life, such as the local villagers along the Salt Trails jungle trekking route through the Crocker Range is incredibly eye-opening for the young adventurers’.

Climbing Mount Kinabalu is a test of endurance for the participants to attempt, and know that by choosing an eco-tourism operator, such as Downbelow Marine and Wildlife Adventures, they contribute to a worthy cause of protecting and preserving the natural World Heritage Site – Kinabalu National Park!

In a 2D1N standard climbing Mount Kinabalu package created specially to suit our Expedition Borneo program, our Sabah Travel Centre prepares the group for all their adventure activities with plenty of information on pre-travel preparation.

Recent adventure group of 20+ participants on our 30-day Expedition Borneo program were more than ready to start their climb from Timpohon Gate to Lows Peak!

It’s a great deal easier to put into perspective of how challenging climbing Mount Kinabalu is, when climbers are informed on what to expect.

Our Sabah Travel Centre offer clients as much advice as possible, so they successfully reach the summit of Sabah’s iconic landmark at 4,095 metres.

Climbing guests appreciate very much a video of the arduous climb created by our Sabah Travel Centre and Kota Kinabalu Dive Shop using a GoPro Hero camera. It illustrates the differences of environment from kilometere to kilometre; some of the way the trail are man-made stairs accompanied by railings, or large rocks and boulders, which are sturdy, or steep inclines (the last kilometre of the mountain) where ropes are needed to assist climbing (and are provided!)

Expedition Borneo groups are always successful in reaching the summit and back in Kota Kinabalu the following day for another adventure activity, such as learning to dive on the PADI Open Water Diver course, because we give more than enough preparation!

As part of our Expedition Borneo program, our group went ziplining through the Borneo jungle canopy on a day trip just outside of Kota Kinabalu!

The group thoroughly enjoyed their day, which was not only fun, but increases their fitness. Sometimes, health and fitness may not be given enough attention when travelling, which is understandable, although travels are less likely to be disrupted by unforeseen illnesses. It can really dampen the mood of any frequent globe-trotter, even if struck with an inconvenient flu or cold, and distract you from enjoying your adventure!

To avoid the adventure turning into a nightmare, we prepare packing lists, general precautions and FAQs for all our groups to maximise their enjoyment!

Before climbing Mount Kinabalu, participants are surprised to see such a short list of items to pack for a 2 day 1 night program, but they’ll know why as soon as they’ve climbed about 1km! Lighter is better, as with the physiological effects of altitude causes 1kg to seem as if it weighs about 20kg!
