    hello! hindi ako magpapakage tour, DIY ako everytime me travel. but climbing mt. K kailangan ng guide, think from rm70 to rm150 ang bayad per guide max of 8 climbers na. so mas cheaper kung madami tayo:) wala pa akong ticket, naghihintay nalang ng promo. no exact dates yet pero sana end of april or 1st week of may:) let me know if ur going para mas madami mas masaya:)

    same here, mas prefer ko rin DIY.. kaya ko natanong yung package kasi sa Laban Rata Lodge, mahirap daw magpa-book.. at mahal daw ang bookings pag sa net..
    yun ang sabi samin dun sa hostel namin sa KK, recommend nya, dun nalang daw magpa-book sa kanila.. mas mura daw.. ewan ko lang kung sales pitch nya yun.. haha
    depende pa sa dates.. may naka-sked din ako na trip ng last week of april so baka mag-conflict.. pero interested ako sumama..
    wala pa rin akong ticket.. antay nlng muna seat sale.. antabay nalang ako sa thread. thanks :)

    di ko natanong kung magkano.. ang sabi lang niya kung aakyat ako ng kinabalu, sa kanya nlng ako magpa-book.. mas mura at sigurado daw.. mahal daw kasi pag mag-book sa net.. at may mga scammer pa..
    plan ko kung aakyat is i-email ko siya to inquire and book.. para lang sure at sa malamang dun din ako titira sa kanila sa KK.. Akinabalu Youth Hostel pala ito..
    yun 100-150 MYR sa Laban Rata? nung tiningnan ko kasi sa net, 1k++ MYR 3d2n.. mapapa-mura ka sa presyo.. haha

  • Mahal nga talaga sa Laban Rata, halos kalahati ng expedition expense including airfares, sa lodging lang mapupunta. :(

    Mukhang mas mura pang mag-climb sa Snow Mountains ng Taiwan. Also planning to climb a few volcanic mountains of Indonesia kung may makakasama. :)

    When my friends and I did a D-I-Y 2D/1N Mt. Kinabalu climb two years ago, we spent around RM 645.30 per person, inclusive of meals, climbing permit, insurance, guide and porter fees, certificate, plus transportation to and from Kota Kinabalu city proper. We booked directly with Sutera Sanctuary Lodges one month before our trip. We chose the dormitory-type accommodations at Laban Rata. Pricey talaga pero we had no choice. Pero mas mura pa rin compared to joining packaged tours. Click here for the trip expense report.

    I think the current rate for a 2D/1N climb with Laban Rata accommodation is around RM 500-550 per person. Sutera will insist that you get the 3D/2N package, pero just tell the customer rep that your time is limited and that you have only two days to spare. Just email them and ask for the current rates. :)
  • Has anyone tried white water rafting in Padas? How was it?

    I wanna climb Taiwan's Snow Mountain! Kailan ang plano mo?

    I enjoin you to climb Mt. Penanjakan and Mt Bromo in Java. The view is spectacular! Too bad my camera died when I went there so I had to use my crappy phone camera.

    Haha, no concrete plans yet for Snow Mountain climb. Puno na travel and climb sched ko for next year. Either 2014 or 2015 siguro ang Taiwan and Indonesia climbs.

    Hi! You could google the companies offering tour packages in KK. When I browsed the net, they cost more than double per person, than DIY tour which my wife and I did. We just contracted a taxi driver for the city tour.

    For the island tour, your hotel can help you get the lowest deal. You could read my blog account below for some info:

    try OIB (only in borneo), pretty much their cost is the same sa net. wala naman gaano difference pero mas okay sa net kasi may mga package deals na makaka tipid ka. try getting the wild river and river cruise package (one day activity) mukang sulit at mura. for city tour mag hire ka na lang ng taxi. you can get as low as 90 RMD (or pag swertehen ka mas mura pa), entrance fees not included, para iikot ka sa city.
  • hi guys, me and my 6 collegues will be in KK this sunday dec 9 til dec 12. can you help us build our itinerary? and where to stay? we're on a tight budget and no plans of climbing Mt. Kinabalu either :)

    dec 9 4:00pm clark to KKIA
    dec 12 1:40pm KKIA to Clark

    Thanks in advance!

    Monday pm - klias wetland river cruise for the proboscis monkeys and fireflies

    Tuesday - visit the kinabalu national park - wholeday or
    whitewater at padas river - wholeday

    Bought a ticket as well pero its going to be from Manila to Brunei and KK back to Manila.( its just going to be a week travel. Any suggested itinerary?
  • private_erickprivate_erick PEx Rookie ⭐
    sunday market at gaya st. is held sunday am till afternoon. so skip that. TARP na agad kayo. and yes, for the river cruise at fireflies sundo nito between 1pm-2pm. check the sked of the tour operator.

    kung adrenalin junkie kayo - padas whitewater would be nice. and enjoy the train ride.

    for the city tour kaya yan basta maaga kayo magstart. you can check out 12nn given na naka webcheck in na kayo at hand carry lang.

    Oops oo nga pala, its a sunday only market.

    Di ba bitin sa halfday ang TARP? if 1pm dapat enroute na sa Klias river?

    Ano highlights sa kinabalu natl park? Not sure kung kaya namen mag whitewater rafting hehehe

    Thanks!
