Situated close to the peak of Mount Kinabalu, the Laban Rata Lodge is the final rest stop before the summit. Located at more than 3,000 metres it offers the choice of shared and dormitory style rooms with basic facilities, a heated shower and a restaurant. All accommodation packages are full board, with the dormitory accommodation sharing a common bathroom, whilst the twin cabins have bathrooms attached. The lodge can also rent out additional items such as blankets, torches and sleeping bags.
The Kota Kinabalu fish market is a real eye opener and you can buy some serious tuna steaks.
