Book your Kinabalu climbing package from Kumuka.com

I started to accept quotation requests for Mount Kinabalu climbing since February 2007. Statistically, I have received more than 500 request, but from that number, Aiden and me could only process and handle less than 5% of it.

The major reason why we could not deal with the other request for the climb is that most of the request is made to close to the climbing dates. As I have mentioned before, climbing Kinabalu is selling like hot fried-bananas this year 2007, as it happens to be the Visit Malaysia Year. Most of the climbers who sent us the request, plan to go within 3 months from their request date. It is almost impossible to get a place for climbers to climb within that period of time as it is always full when we contacted Sutera Sanctuary Lodges. Sadly, we have to turn the request down because of this.

Sutera Sanctuary LodgesSecondly, Sutera Sanctuary Lodges has not given us a good cooperation on dealing with the bookings. It was really difficult to get through them – especially by telephone – and Aiden have to go to their office almost every other day to get the latest feedback on our bookings. It wears us down.

Lately, I heard that Sutera Sanctuary Lodges is going to increase the accommodation rate in Laban Rata starting from 2008. They are also going to have new rules and regulations on climbers of Mount Kinabalu pertaining the lodges in Laba Rata and the climbing packages. This is the highlight of our challenges.

So, at the moment, I am going to put down the reservation form for climbers, temporarily. As an alternative, climbers can check out our new affiliate partner, Kumuka.com which will be handling all the climbing packages, until our problems is solved.

Kumuka.com have 2 packages specifically for Mount Kinabalu climbers – 2D1N package and 3D2N package – which will cost US$315 and US$370 respectively. The packages are meant for international climbers. I would suggest that Malaysian climbers to contact Sutera Sanctuary Lodges directly for Malaysian rate.

  1. Hello Kay, it seems to be something similar (like what you’ve mentioned). They have just opened up the advance booking facilities, but I have not yet decided to book with them, due to the BLURRY clarification given by them.

    They are now ruling the whole thing. Price were to be fixed by them, and you have to follow what they’ve offered, to get the best deal (yet, still very expensive, because of the packaging price).

    We will be updating all of our online visitors if there’s any news. Glad that you have put up an alternative option for our online visitors, Drizad.

    I am still waiting for confirmation from our trusted agent, for the price and all the clarification needed. I bet all of you will be shocked when you see the new packaging’s price + style.

    Well, the Big G has a “G slap” last year on those Adwords users. Now we have a “SSL Slap” this year, for those hikers. I feel sorry for them… Keep an eye on Drizad’s blog, we will be the latest news, if we have been told about in the coming weeks (or perhaps months, again).
