Mt Kinabalu, Sabah, MALAYSIA – Mountain Torq, the world’s highest and Asia’s first via ferrata opened in
December 2007 offering a new, exhilarating, adrenalin-charged experience to climbers and hikers to world
heritage site, Mount Kinabalu. A via ferrata (or ‘iron road’ in Italian), is a continuous protected mountain path. It
consists of a series of steel rungs, rails and cables embedded into the rock face, opening up routes to the
average hiker that were previously only accessible to experienced rock climbers and mountaineers with
specialized equipment. Mountain Torq’s via ferrata enables climbers and non-climbers to experience the thrill of
mountain climbing in complete safety, while taking in the spectacular mountain surroundings and summit views.
