We subscribe to the basic philosophy that no one should have a bad time in the outdoors. Since most of our adventure programmes require a basic level of physical fitness, we have brought it upon ourselves to encourage our trip participants to tune up their fitness levels with us in our GCS before their trip departure. GCS is a complimentary programme that is unique to Adventure Quests.

Our heartfelt condolences to the families of the 18 climbers who unfortunately died in the 5.9-magnitude earthquake which struck Mount Kinabalu at 7.15am on June 5. As parents of primary-school going kids ourselves, we especially feel the pain of the loss of these kids who have so much going for them. We salute their 2 teachers and their mountain guides for the ultimate sacrifice of protecting their wards in their line of duty. Thanks and appreciation for the local mountain guides who are the unsung heroes in braving the teacherous terrains to bring all affected climbers safely down the mountain.
Mount Kinabalu hikes will resume from 1st Sep onwards but the summit path from Laban Rata and Pendant Hut onwards will still be closed until further notice from Sabah Parks. The Kinabalu hike will terminate at these 2 huts.
