Via ferrata in the Mount Kinabalu

What is a via ferrata?

A via ferrata (Italian for “iron road” ) is a mountain path consisting of a series of rungs and cables embracing the rock face, creating a protected pathway that everyone can walk on. It allows access to scenic sections of the mountain normally accessible only to rock climbers and mountaineers.

The first via ferrata was used by military troops in World War I to move around in the Italian Alps.

The world’s highest via ferrata, at 3,800 metres, is located at Mount Kinabalu in the state of Sabah, Malaysia.

The sole operator for via ferrata in Mt Kinabalu is Mountain Torq Sdn Bhd.

Mountain Torq runs the world’s highest and Asia’s first Via Ferrata that starts at 3,200m and ends off at 3,776m above sea level on Mt Kinabalu in Sabah. Mountain Torq enables climbers and non-climbers to experience the thrill of mountain climbing while taking in the spectacular surroundings.

The Mountain Torq via ferrata offers all participants the excitement of coming up close with Mt Kinabalu ands experiencing stunning views of its peaks and valleys.  Anyone, aged 10 to 70, can climb the Mountain Tord via feratta.
