Cosy and eco-friendly, this Alpine-inspired hut houses guests in a dormitory-style setting and includes a private room for 4 exclusive for our climbers. Located 3,289m above sea level (a.s.l.), there is easy access to Mountain Torq’s activities from Pendant Hut. From here you can try to spot your Via Ferrata pals on the Panar Laban rock face!

You can enjoy your post midnight supper and American breakfasts, relax at the comfortable lounge area, pick up a climbing book at our mini alpine library or have fun playing board games. For dinner and other meal options, the Laban Rata restaurant is but a short walk away. Please note that the beds at Pendant Hut will be prioritized for participants engaging in the via Ferrata activity.

“Pendant Hut is slightly more basic (no heat – although climbers sleep in uber-warm sleeping bags), however, there’s a bit of a summer camp vibe here” (Lonely Planet, 2010)

Important Information - Briefing Session

The mandatory pre-activity briefing sessions are conducted daily between 3pm and 4pm in Pendant Hut. A MUST NOT MISS appointment!

During this time, be it if you are a first time via ferrata climber or a veteran mountaineer, you’ll be taken through all the steps from your hike up to the summit, wearing the harness to working the carabiners. While all this is happening, you may make some new found friends who will be joining you in hanging off the side of the mountain the next day!

After the briefing session and filling up some paperwork, it will be time to head off for your buffet dinner and hit the sack! Cos the wake-up call for the summit hike is at 1:30am!
