As of the moment, I am still worn-out and exhausted, but I am back from my Mount Kinabalu adventure. And I’ve reached the summit. Yehey! And even though I was hammered and beaten to death because of the exhaustion from those endless stair trails, it was all worth it. As they say, no guts no glory!
Climbing Mount Kinabalu, one of the highest mountains in SE Asia (4,095 meters or 13, 495 feet) and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a feat in itself. This trip is extra special for me as I celebrated my birthday there.
I’ll be writing a series of entries on this little adventure to Mount Kinabalu including the 3-day tour around Kota Kinabalu (formerly known as Jesselton), the capital city of Sabah, a state in Malaysia.
Personally, I would like to thank Ferdz for all the tips and for lending to me their itineraries during their trip to KK. It helped us plan our trips. Also for those out-of-the-blue inquiries which he never failed to correspond conscientiously. Salamat Ferdz!
I was faced with at least a hundred reasons not to go on with this trip (i.e., flight cancellation, Laban Rata bookings, people backing-out, money transfer problems, etc.) and had only one reason to go (which I will not say anymore, hehe) but I am just glad I went through all the troubles.
