Having made to the summit was always my ultimate aim. Gunung Kinabalu (Mount Kinabalu) summit was marked my success of conquered the highest mountain in Malaysia this time.
Gunung KINABALU (Mount KINABALU) via MESILAU
24 Jun 2012 | Mountain Kinabalu via Mesilau Trail
Back to the failed attempt to the summit in Sept 2009, triggered me to try again whenever there’s chance. Time has passed yearly until June 2012, I was able to grab a chance to attempt to the Gunung Kinabalu‘s summit via Mesilau Trail.
In fact, I jump into easy decision-making to climb this mountain again.
Of course, one month notice wasn’t good enough for us on physical preparation but I confident enough maybe because all these while, all my mountain climbing was involve much trodden, longer and tougher trek. Forget about the altitude and temperature preparation. Not much we can do for this. Swimming more frequent, perhaps may help for under pressure breathing?
Although this was a second time we attempted Mount Kinabalu, our challenge was compounded with the climb happened on 3rd & 4th day of our 4D3N itinerary. Means, we descended on the same day of our departure day to KL. Less advantage for us to take rest after the climb, straight to the airport. Suffer huh? However, we took advantage to visit interesting places before our hike. This was a reward we gained. Haha.
