Henry is a Dusun from Kampung Kiau, a village right at the foot of Mt Kinabalu. This probably explains why he comes from a whole family of mountain guides, including his dad, who was among the first few local guides qualified to lead tourists climbing Mt Kinabalu back in the 50s. Henry started in the tourism industry in 2000 and is one of our most experienced tour leaders. A loveable character with a great rapport with groups and a massive knowledge on the mountain and in the forest.
