Via Ferrata climbing is one of the safest mountaineering sport with a 150 year history.
 
The name Via Ferrata or Via Ferrate (plural) originates from Italian word "Via Attrezzeata" (fully equipped road), which means routes that are secure b handrails, ladders, cabels or lifelines.
 
Launch in mid-December 2007, The Mountain Torq's Via Ferrata is a mountain trail made up of iron rungs, palettes (footholds), cables and rails that are wrapped around the North face of Mount Kinabalu. It has sealed its place in record and history books as the highest via ferrata in the world and the first real via ferrata in Malaysia possibly the whole of South East Asia.
 

Starting originally with 3 routes; Walk The Torq, The Low's Peak Circuit and The Preamble, Mountain Torq now have now discontinued The Preamble route which is in essence an ascent of Low's Peak Circuit route. Therefore, there are now only 2 routes available with variations in length of stay.

 

Pendant Hut at 3,270m a.s.l is Mountain Torq's exclusive accommodation with a capacity of 40 people at one time. Dormitory bunk beds in non-heated rooms. Common bathroom with heaters which can produce at best lukewarm water due to the cold water.
