TravelPod Member ReviewsMount Kinabalu Heritage Resort & Spa Ranau
It's tucked in a quiet corner of Ranau town, located about 15 minutes' drive from the Kinabalu Park. The rooms are quite spacious with attached bathroom and plenty of hot water. The furnishings are a bit old, but what matters to me is that it is clean and comfortable. There is a well-kempt garden, and a spa within the hotel compound. Food is nothing special, just okay. I wouldnt mind staying here again.

... of pancakes and maple syrup. Then met by our guide and driver at 8am for trip up to the tea plantation. The scenery and vegetation is similar to Laos, sharp edged hills and rainforest.

... wet at 2am for our summit trail. The relief on teaching the hostel at the top was fantastic, although short lived when we discovered just how wet we were, and how cold it is here.

A great idea from another hiker has at least led to us filling our metal water bottles with boiling water, ...
... where one would suffice. Although this would seem to be horrendously slow, it was just as quick as the stop-start method we had previously been employing. Along the way we encountered various personalities. There was Sheila, a women whose poor partner was carrying her bag and dragging her up the mountain after a mere 500m. Then there was Bernie, an affable Canadian who forewarned us of the treacherous final 2k and also gave us some diving ...
... no power and the main area is a raised longhouse with a tarp roof and a table and a bench with a few chairs. Off to the left is a balcony overlooking a small drop off into a shallow valley and a kitchen near that. The rooms comprise of roughly the same thing, a raised platform with some small walls of thatched bamboo about a metre high, a tarp roof and a mosquito net covering a small traveling mat/gym mat. ...
... 2,700m. high I did my first longer, because all 5 min break for a Snickers snack. It was nothing but a bad decision. My muscles managed to cool off and I had cramps chasing my legs all around on the way up till the 3,309m. But that problem did not existed to me once I reached 3,100m.high, that turned out to be the biggest struggle of all. 3,309m was a lunch break and I knew it, and in between those height levels I was nothing but almost crying, wanting so much to stop and sit down. ...
