As all climbing permits are issued by Mount Kinabalu park, we will need to check the availability with Mount Kinabalu park before confirming your requested date.We will do our best to obtain your requested date. But if you have any flexibility in your dates, do let us know in the booking form and we can check those as well with the park.Only 160 permits are issued by the park each day, so we would recommend booking at least 3-4 months in advance for peak season (May to Aug), and 2-4 weeks in advance during off-season.As permits are issued by Mount Kinabalu park (and not us), any permits that have been issued are strictly non-refundable.OtherHealth: It is recommended that all climbers should have themselves medically checked before attempting any mountain climb.

Hi Sussane, Yes, it is possible. You can send your query to chat@seeksophie.com
Hi there if I'm looking to book the 2D1N mount Kinabalu climb with Torque walk viaferrata for 2 people, do i select the date that we are planning to do the actual climb or the pickup from Kota Kinabalu? Also, it says the head torch is a must- is this provided or should we buy it in KK? And wanted to double check that accomodation the day before the climb is provided as well as the accomodation on the mountain? Thanks so much!
