What we're about

This group is for anyone who finds themselves with these little inner cravings for travel and the mountains. We welcome anyone, especially beginners or recreational hikers, of all ages and fitness levels.

Our aim is to encourage more outdoor travel and experiential learning; to inspire and encourage each other to step out of their comfort zone and enjoy the mountains along with new learning experiences. We wish to encourage a healthy living and fitness, along with appreciating nature as a lifestyle.

Also, we do not wish to be little monsters as travellers. We strive to promote sustainable travel, along with understanding and appreciating local culture. We hope that the experience more than just enjoying yourself and "YOLO".

Therefore, we try to make our trips as affordable and accessible for people.

For this meetup group, feel free to have discussions on trips or any questions on travelling or hiking.

Our trips primarily revolve around having mountains in the region. We do less of Malaysia and more of the other parts of the world to enjoy the different mountain ranges and areas in the world.

Do not worry if you are totally new! We wish to encourage newbies or first-time travellers/hikers/trekkers.

We will try to cater for different trips of varying difficulties. On top of that, each trip will come with advised training and detailed info-kits and briefing, explaining the difficulty and preparation for it!

{Hiking Series}M'sia- Mt. Kinabalu (4,095m): World's Highest Via Ferrata!

Little Monsters Travel

Mount Kinabalu is Malaysia's highest mountain and is an extremely popular climb, especially amongst beginners even though it is above 4,000m. It is one of the more accessible 4,000m mountains. However, this trip is focusing not just on summiting Mount Kinabalu, but also "via Ferrata"! Via Ferrata is an amazing add-on experience to the Kinabalu hike where it will be an amazing and thrilling experience to walk along the rock faces along cables and ropes, while safely harnessed in! The Mount Kinabalu hike is quite regulated and expensive. There are limited permits per day and the permits need to be booked in advance while the 2D1N climb can only be booked 1 month in advance. Most of the people book the "via Ferrata" option in order to guarantee the slots. There are 2 "Via Ferrata" options, WTT (Walk the Torque) and Low's Peak Circuit (LPC). WTT is the shorter one while LPC is the higher and longer one. Ideally, we'll all aim to do LPC! Since we're already paying so much for the hike might as well do all the way! Do note that there is a cut-off point for the briefing for Ferrata (so it means we have to be fit/faster) of 4pm. Also, in the case of bad weather and the Ferrata option is called off, we won't get a refund. The minimum age for WTT is 10 years old and for LPC is 16 years old. Who is this for? ==> Adventurous and thrill-seeking people ==> Reasonably fit / fast hikers / some basic experience in hiking ==> Wish to do a nice mountain with an amazing view in Malaysia ==> First time experiencing 4,000m+ **Technically, Kinabalu is doable for most beginners, or even those new to hiking although it will definitely be tiring/painful. ***If you're not fast enough, you can still do the summit just not the via ferrata. Don't worry if you are worried whether you can make it, I can consult and advise you accordingly, so do whatsapp ([masked]) if interested!
