Mount Kinabalu climb reopened to public since Sept 16

KOTA KINABALU (Sept 20): All Sabah Parks stations and offices (TTS), including climbing activities to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, have been reopened to the public since Sept 16, says Sabah Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Jafry Ariffin.

He said the areas around the Turtle Island Park in Sandakan and Bohey Dulang Island in Semporna, as well as the Ulu Kimanis sub-station, will commence operations Monday (Sept 20).

“However, the reopening of the park is subject to the stipulated rules, as only visitors who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed in.

“Domestic tourists from the same district, as well as civil servants aged above 12 and under 70 are also allowed,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He added that the number of visitors is limited to only 100 people a day for each destination.

“All activities allowed at the park are subject to the standard operating procedures (SOP) of the TTS, in line with Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan, which was updated on Sept 11,” he said.
