If climbing up Southeast Asia’s highest mountain over the world’s highest Via Ferrata wasn’t quite enough for you then why not take a running jump off the top? (Attached to a paraglider of course!) What else could top the most incredible ascent in Southeast Asia than a paragliding descend high above the clouds.

There are also paragliding activities available around Ranau near Mount Kinabalu and Kokol Hill which is just 30 minutes from Kota Kinabalu city.
The ultimate white water adrenaline buzz only a few hours from Kota Kinabalu City. You better be ready to go fast and get wet as you battle together through intense rapids as the Padas River snakes through the jungle doing everything it can to fight you. A really intense and fun experience best enjoyed in groups, perfect for friends, families and corporate team building trips.

KK City Amazing Race
Similar to the bar pursuit but without the beers! Also having slightly more adventurous activities that wouldn’t be advisable if you were tipsy. Abseiling from bridges, racing across town to different locations and doing challenges. Will your team be the first across the finishing line? Does it really matter when you’re having such a great time getting to know KK and making new friends? Of course it does!
