Precious Moment In The Mountain (Post#20): Mount Kinabalu
My first formal climb happened in Mount Kinabalu which became my way to be a member of mountaineering group in my country through my colleague at work. This mountain is the highest mountain that I ever climbed even though I haven’t reach the summit and only reached the hotel (Laban Rata – 3200+masl). Cannot forget my first climb experience and had been an eye opener that even I had difficulty on this climb I really love mountains. Photo captured last September 2008.
My mountaineering group sometime planned for backpacking trip in three southeast asian countries. So aside from mountaineering this group of mine looking for another adventure, and this time it’s not mountain climbing.After I got the news that backpacking activity will be pushed through, I made myself available for this activity because I knew for myself, this kind of opportunity will not be happened again or will happen again after so many years.I knew for myself that this adventure will cost me some money because the plan is to travel in three different countries: Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.Below are the major cities that we had visited during this backpacking adventures.
1. Ho Chi Minh – Vietnam 2. Phnom Pehn – Cambodia 3. Siem Reap – Cambodia 4. Bangkok – Thailand
Total days we spent for this adventure were almost 9 days (from March 19 to 27) and for me, it’s not enough, there are lots to see in these countries but I also believe, that you can’t see everything in one day.In my next blogs, I will feature in details all the stuff that my group and I did for this backpacking adventure and all the places that we visited.Until then.
