The name via ferrata, or via ferrate (plural) originates from an Italian word ‘Via Attrezzata’ (fully equipped road), which means routes that are secured by handrails, ladders, cables or lifelines.
Launched in mid-December 2007, the Mountain Torq 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.
The Via Ferrata trail starts at Mount Kinabalu Panar Laban Rock Face (approximately 3,300 meters) and reaches its highest point at 3,800 meters.
Accommodations are available at the Pendant Hut—3,270 meters above sea level, which can accommodate at least 30 people at one time, with a dormitory-bunk bed type; and the Sayat-Sayat—3,668 meters above sea level, which accommodates 10 people at a time, with a dormitory-bunk bed type.
