      Hi Tony,

      I assume you mean climbing Mount Kinabalu, which is a great climb. Although the tallest mountain in Southeast Asia, if's fairly non-technical. You should prepare for rain, but otherwise there's not a lot of safety concerns. Like many places in the world, the big cost of Borneo is getting there. Once there, it's pretty inexpensive.

    Help Tony Teo create a great list.
