Climbing activities at Mount Kinabalu to resume on Dec 7

KOTA KINABALU: Climbing activities at Mount Kinabalu will resume on Dec 7, says state Covid-19 spokesman Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun.

He said the state government was working with Sabah parks in reopening various state parks in stages, including climbing activities at Mount Kinabalu.

He said among the conditions were that the number of climbers was slashed to half of the capacity previously permitted.

Sabah parks were also working out various SOPs to be followed when the park is reopened.

Prior to the closure of Mount Kinabalu to climbing activities after the conditional MCO was implemented Oct 3, Sabah Parks allowed 180 climbers a day, and now it is expected to only allow 90 climbers.

Masidi said that the details of the SOP and the number of climbers allowed daily would be announced by Sabah Parks soon.

Earlier this week, Sabah allowed for diving and hiking activities to restart.
