Customer Travel Tip: If you are planning to climb the mountain, KK's main attraction, then now is not the time to visit. Since the earthquake it is not possible to climb it. They say it may reopen in December 2015.

Liked: It's a good place for onward travel around Sabah, Sarawak or to neighbouring countries.

Disliked: Apart from the mountain, there is not a a great deal to do in terms of sightseeing.
