The Via Ferrata is a mountain pathway comprised of rails, cables, and bridges that take you from point A to point B while walking alongside the rock face.

The Via Ferrata Mount Kinabalu Kinabalu is divided into two sections: the Torq Circuit and the Low’s Peak Circuit, the latter of which is more physically challenging.

Client's Feedback What They Say?

Glenn Michael Tourist Form Britain

The private guides were fascinating and well-informed. We had the impression that they were more than guides.

Hannah Lee Tourist From Singapore

I had an incredible holiday in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, thanks to Remarkable Borneo Tours, who took care of all the details. The hotels you recommended were all excellent, and we encountered no problems. The driver that accompanied us was excellent; he took care of the most of the sightseeing, and we were really happy. I'm looking forward to my future vacation with Remarkable Borneo Tours.

We had a fantastic time in Sabah, and Remarkable Borneo Tours provided outstanding service. All of the hotels were excellent. Without your assistance, we would not have been able to reach Sabah. We appreciate everything and look forward to our future vacation.
