RM7 (~USD2.16) Insurance coverage for climbing Kinabalu

If you have been following me for the past few weeks, there was an issue about climbing insurance for climbers of Kinabalu. BS Tan sent me an email in regards to the issue, which I could not find the solution myself.

Anyway, she received a reply from Sabah Park, explaining about the insurance coverage, after she sent them an official complaint letter. She is kind enough to share with us the reply:

Dear Madam,

  2. Dear Drizad,

    Thanks for the useful post.

    We shall know how and where we can make the claims if anything incident happened to us during the climb.

    Does the insurance cover the porter or bearer charges for carry the patients down from the mount ?

    Thanks.

    Not sure how much “budget” that you want to save, but so far, no more budget package are provided by SSL. You have to take the package, as far as I know…
