A good start and good activity for my birthday. I get the chance to go up Mt Perahu with a classmate of mine during high school, and a bunch of friendly strangers. Thanks to her, I get to go for this trip.
Have thought of it but never really think of the how. I guess the Magic is working. I mean waking up at 4am just for this seems crazy at first, and I couldn’t even sleep properly the night before, anxious. Wondering if my alarm will work, or even if I could wake up in time, or if my classmate can find her way to my house. Above all these, we made it to Tamparuli around 5 plus. Waited a bit for the rest to show up and get our gear ready, our gear here are all actually belongs to my friend, got a torchlight and climbing sick (not sure if this is the proper name), and get ourselves ready to climb.
It does really feel like climbing ‘cos the hill is pretty steep. The stick really came in handy. It really help’pulling’ me up and got balancing. It also helps when getting down, considering that it is steep and I could easily trip.
It took me roughly about 45 minutes to get to the top. Phew, hard job for me and I knew I look so pale halfway, haha..
So here, a birthday gift for myself..
A peace sign is a must for this!
Mt Kinabalu is at the right. Magnificent view huh… We were fortunate that it wasn’t so sunny and there were even cool breeze up there.
So proud that I did managed to get on top.. Yippee…
Oh and one last photo of the hanging bridge
Well, if you are interested to go there, I’m sure you’ll be able to find out with your GPS.
