Conquering Mt Kinabalu for the 4th time - Day 1

All 6 of us went to Kota Kinabalu a day earlier so that the next day we will arrive early at Kinabalu Park and also give us plenty of time to do any last minute shopping.

After resting, continue with more uphill walking

Some of the climbers also took their lunch break at the same checkpoint





Summit Trail - just go up hill



That small white house on the top right hand corner is where we are heading.

My brother are already too tired to walk that he needed to rest every few hundred meters

After 5km, we have walked 3 hours 25 mins and its another 1 km before we reached Laban Rata
