Don't know since when Mount Kinabalu was inside my list.
not because to conquer the higher Mount in South East Asia.
but just to experience the trial, the view and the sweat.
welcome buy the rain
the trial is neither complicated or hard it just because of the high altitude and the requirement of mental strength.
depart around 8.30 am from Mesilau gate. all the way smooth and fun, the view was normal for rain forest, beside you may see stream and water fall. For me all the way on the trial rain was the big concern lucky it was just drizzle.
After you exhausted with your physical energy you really need to use your mental energy to keep you on going while your muscle still working.
take a few rest while have some energy bar and sandwich and of cause few picture.
because of the cold weather the camera lenses tent to be fog so the photo look a bit over expose even thought was using ISO 100.wonder why?
the screen change from time to time. from rain forest to small leave plant to algae then you may see more and more rock.and some of the trail is really killing
the weather become even more cold, because of the raining season.
and finally after 5 hour we can see the Laban Rata rest house.
is quite comprehensive and i think the facility and food is quite nice for a place at 3000 meter above sea level.
to be continue...... on the summit.
