Gunung Kinabalu Hike 2017

August 8, 2016 - Air Asia Promotion.


Penang to Kota Kinabalu return fare only RM298 per person.


Luggage price :


Gunung Kinabalu 2Day 1 Night Package :


Bookings for hike only opens in Mid-October 2016. I was over excited to book the flight ticket first prior checking on the hike date availability.

The guide request me to pay him deposit RM250 (adult) & RM150 (child) first for him to arrange for bookings when it opens and photocopy IC too. I will strike off the IC for security reasons.

If I cannot secure the date I want on March 17 & 18, 2017. I will just go for a tour Kota Kinabalu. Ha! Ha!
