Thank you very much. It was an amazing trip and its really an amazing experience. The arrangement was really good and Edmund was a very good and helping guide. Yes body legs still aching, should be better soon.

Vincent was really helpful and thanks for his responsiveness.

It is not about safety, rather when exhausted , the mussels becomes weak and hence it is necessary to have a walking stick. When the body becomes weak, safety becomes a concerns.

Best Moments: Reaching the peak.. as it requires a lot of mental perseverance and endurance

Exhilarating Experience

No comments on the climb since the time we were about to climb Mt Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia was hit by earthquake and no one is allowed to climb until further notice.
Best moment of the trip: Padas White Water Rafting – We experience on this activity our firsts. First time to ride an old diesel train and First time to do rafting.
Moment least enjoyed: Island Hoping – Although the island is good, it was a bit crowded and need a long que to do some water sport. Also, the weather changes in an instant which stops all the activity.

Amazing experience. Best moment: reaching the summit.


11-14 Jun 2014

Everything went smoothly. Great job!  A couple of our team members could not make it to the summit. On the whole, the experience was memorable.

Excellent service! Needs reasonable fitness to summit. As the path are man-made it is generally safe. However can be slippery if raining.

I was pleasantly surprise by the food arrangement at Mt Kinabalu compared to my previous trip. I underestimated the importance of being fit and strong. The whole trip was enjoyable. But I was most impressed by the improvement at Laban Rata.
