Mt.Kinabalu - Via Ferrata

Many of them asked me why I was doing the same mountain again. The reason was Via Ferrata. Via Ferrata is the toughest of the various routes on Mt.Kinabalu. It needs no fear of heights but guts and confidence. Of course, good physical fitness is mandatory.

Via Ferrata is derived from the Italian words Via Attrezzata which mean route supported by hand rails, ladders, cables and lifelines. Via Ferrata at Mt.Kinabalu is known as Mountain Torque and scales the height from 3200mts to 3800 mts ASL. This is the only one in Asia and incidentally happens to be the highest in the world.

Our eight members group had a fantastic time together with lots of fun & adventure. Yet another unforgettable trek in my life.

Back to mountain

Even though I've climbed Mt.Kinabalu already in last June, this time I'm trying out the Via Ferrata route (Iron Road). It seems Via Ferrata in Kinabalu is the first in Asia and the highest in the world. Wow!!

Will be back by Sunday with lots of adventurous experience and hopefully with nice pictures too :)
