Taman Negara Kinabalu

Kinabalu Park or Mesilau Nature Resort?

Hi. I am wondering which one is nearest to the mountain trail? Kinabalu Park or Mesilau Nature Resort? We are booking for resorts there and would like to stay nearest so we can start climbing early. Or both place is the same?

Hi there,

The nearest probably the Kinabalu Park (Timpohon) trail. But i recommend you to climb via Mesilau Trail and go down via Timpohon so that you can enjoy both trail and view. Eventhough the Mesilau trail is 2km longer than the Timpohon trail but its worth it you know because the view is magnificent. I climbed last May 2007 via Mesilau Trail and go down using Timpohon and what i can say is, if i'm going back to climb Mount Kinabalu, I probably be using the Mesilau Trail again to climb up. Trust me.
