About Via Ferrata

Via Ferrata (Italian for “road of iron”) or klettersteig (German for “climbing path”) is a protected climbing route consisting of a series of rungs, rails and cables to aid climbers moving safely through the mountain.

There are more than 300 via ferrata routes around the world. The first via ferrata were built in the Dolomite mountain region of Italy during the World War I, to aid the movement of the Italian alphine military unit. Majority of these via ferrata can be found in the Dolomites in Italy and different countries including Germany, France, Austria, Slovenia, Romania, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Poland, United Kingdom, Via Ferrata can also be found in a few places in United States, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Singapore, Japan and Malaysia

The world’s highest Via Ferrata, at 3,800M, is located on Mount Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia, on the island of Borneo.

Mountain Torq Testimony 1 Climbing Mt Kinabalu was no mean feat but definitely something that can be accomplished by most. Before departure, friends who have climbed all told me “its sooooo tough!” or “you better train!!” or “its SUPER cold”. [More]
Mountain Torq Testimony 2 Upon the drive up winding roads amidst the mountain mist we could see Mount Kinabalu peeping through the clouds.. I had no experience in mountain hiking, all I knew was that the excitement and positivity to reach that 4072mark was on full throttle. [. . .]
Mountain Torq Testimony 3 We came, we saw, we conquered. I made it to the summit of Mount Kinabalu, and not only that, I got another chance to put my stomach into knots during the Walk the Torq Via Ferrata. A total experience of its own at Mount Kinabalu.[. . .]
