OMG OMG OMG! Today has to be the longest day ever.
Woke up at half past two to get ready, and afterwards we gathered outside the cabin together with the other climbers (at least fifty in all) for a briefing from the guides. It's under 10 degree celsius and close to 3 a.m. when we began the push to the summit. The night …
... the last 4k we were delighted with our day and proud of the achievement. In all 14km in hot temperatures and relentless steep climbs leaving us exhausted and ready for bed by 6pm. An amazing day all round finished with a quick circuit of the botanical gardens on the way back Tip for the day: obviously, check the bus option out ...
... the ordeal we had gone though on the way up. Being able to see the sheer drops and steep inclines you really got a great sense of achievement. We wound our way down the rope, across the slippery rock faces, Kats grip on the rope was not the best, but again the guides were there to help us out in the difficult patches. We got back to the rest house at 8:45. Absolutely knackard, we were meant to have breakfast, but were not really hungry. We ...
... in 45 mins and arrived at the cafe, where we were all meeting, just before the rain became torrential again! Thank goodness!! It was over! We cannot thank Suppingu, in particular, enough for helping and leading us, but also for sharing his life story with us and telling us about his children. It was a special part of our climbing experience, and one we won't forget. Now we only have a 3 hour ride to Kota Kinabalu to our last ...
... water and catch and cook food. I think everyone's highlight was the star appearance from teddy as he got caught in a trap by his nose and thrown through the air. My jungle coffee wasn't exactly Starbucks but it was pretty good. After our course had finished a few people headed to the river for a swim while the rest of us had a couple if beers and chilled out. It had been a hectic few days with very little down time. It was then that I had my leech experience! As I took my sandal off ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
- Free parking
It's tucked in a quiet corner of Ranau town, located about 15 minutes' drive from the Kinabalu Park. The rooms are quite spacious with attached bathroom and plenty of hot water. The furnishings are a bit old, but what matters to me is that it is clean and comfortable. There is a well-kempt garden, and a spa within the hotel compound. Food is nothing special, just okay. I wouldnt mind staying here again.
