Trip back to KK via Ranau in the mountains to see Mount Kinabalu the 3rd largest mountain in the world that you can walk up. It takes 2 days and 1 night to climb with the last ascent starting at 2am to arrive at the summit at dawn. It takes 9 hours to get back down the 8.5 km trail.

Rarely if ever stopping, they slalomed up the steep paths taking ...

I won't make it!
YES, I WILL!!!!!!
No, I won't,
Just keep on moving,
Just move your legs, that's the only way.
This mountain was described as ''climb friendly'' and for some stupid reason I understood it by ''easy''. Sometimes, I ...
