A few points to note:
1. The min duration of a trip, including the climb, should be 4 days. 2 days to fly in and out and 2 days to scale the mountain.
2. A 3 day trip is risky as the descent climb may not be as quick as one may assume. Weather or injuries can contribute to possible delays. Traffic conditions also are a factor to consider. Therefore, we do not recommend that you descend the mountain the same day as your flight out to the next destination.
3. We do not encourage customers to buy their air tickets until accommodation on the mountain has been confirmed.
4. Do consider flying into Kota Kinabalu on a morning or day flight as you would need time to be transferred to the National Park the night before your climb for registration matters.
5. Most meals are not included as it leaves climbers free & easy to plan and choose what they would like to consume on this trip.
6. Travel insurance is also excluded from the land package cost although the compulsory climber's insurance by the National Park has already been included in the cost.
7. Additional costs outside the basic 3 day package, would be drinks, meals, tips to guides/drivers, airfare and personal travel insurance.
