The Low's Peak

FuFu Travel - Kota Kinabalu, Sabah -
18 - 24 April 2009 + Episode Four + The Low's Peak +


Still sleepy but ready for the challenging and exciting climb.

After a night's rest, we woke up at 2am and had breakfast at 2.30am. We left at 3am for the three-hour trek to the summit and to catch the magnificent sunrise, weather permitting as what the guide told us.


"We're the AU20 Climbers. Ready to conquer the Low's Peak, over."


The trail winds up from a steep walkway.

In the dark, what we could see were the beams of torch lights as the procession of climbers trudge higher and higher. There are ladders, hand railings and ropes to help us over the steeper slopes. The most thrilling part was the few hundreds metres before the peak where you need to grasp the rope all the way up.


All the climbers had their own headlights on but not FuFu.


But do remember to grasp the rope or you would fall.


It real helped us over the steeper slope.


Watch out! It's real damn narrow here.


See the contrast between guide and the climbers.


The four of us continued climbing first with a guide.

An hour from Panar Laban, we arrived the check point of Sayat-Sayat Hut (3668m), the highest shelters on the mountain. We registered our name there to make sure the number of climbers in and out would be the same for the checking later. From there, we walked across the bare granodiorite slabs that stretch endlessly ahead, in an eerie moonscape of stone.


They quickly laid on the rock once we reached the check point.

By about 6am, we reached the final destination - the Low's Peak (4095.2m). However the weather was not permitting and it's foggy. Unfortunately, we couldn't see the rumour magnificent sunrise. Anyway, i will definitely be back for it next time.


Yeah, FuFu was on top of the Low's Peak at 4095.2m.


We're on the highest point of Low's Peak on Mount Kinabalu.

As the highest mountain in Malaysia and the prominent mountain in Southeast Asia, this gorgeous granodiorite massif stands at 4095.2m tall. The views of the surrounding peaks are magnificent.


FuFu was extremely disappointed to see the fog on the peak.


Yes, only four of us got up to the Low's Peak.


Anyway, the foggy view on the peak was not that bad at all.


The fog gave different effect so i turned the mode to black & white.


The spiritual wish must have transmitted to the God of Kinabalu.


The sky suddenly had become clear in just a second.


We all crazily shouted which we shouldn't do. Gotta respect the God.

Low's Peak is the majestic summit of Borneo, the focal point of the Park and the whole of Sabah. Such is the importance of this mountain that the state capital Jesselton was renamed to Kota Kinabalu (City of Kinabalu) in 1964.


Front the vantage point, we saw a dramatic drop more than 1000m.


That's the mysterious Low's Gully.


An expedition successfully descended into the Gully in 1998.


It's a Malaysian-British expedition if you want to know.


Those have height phobia are not advisable to get closer there.


We're going down from Low's Peak.


We had spent too much time on Low's Peak snapping pictures.


It's time to leave although FuFu wished to stay longer.


It's advisable to descend slowly and carefully.


And we came near to the South Peak.


The distinctive South Peak to the south make up incredible scenery.


It's a satisfying climbing trip to Mount Kinabalu.


Anyway we couldn't wait any longer to get closer to the peak.


Hey yo, South Peak is the most beautiful peak of Mount Kinabalu.


Teach us not to yell as we're seeing this stunning view.


See this girl - she stood steadily enjoying the spectacular view.


Thanks God for the clear weather.


Sorry guys, FuFu just couldn't stop snapping South Peak.


FuFu was deeply impressed by the beautiful scenery.


And we're advised to descent as soon as possible.


But with such good mountain condition, we chose to stay longer.


"Attention : 002, 004, 006 and 007 are on South Peak."


It was freaking cold there. *chilling*


If there's love at first sight, South Peak is FuFu second first love.




The Hut tells us that we had walked 8km far at 3929m.


We camwhored here despite of the chilly wind. lol


Not willing to leave and the guide was waiting for us.


Freaking cold but still wanna take pictures.


Two of the girls were half frozen already.


The four of us on South Peak.


We demonstrated the scene of how we climbed up in the morning.


It's a challenging and exciting part nonetheless.


Well, FuFu could be the ambassador of Mount Kinabalu.


Sure can promote Mt. Kinabalu better than any advertisements.


"Hey guys, try to conquer the mountain."


"Just do it with NIKE."


We're standing higher than clouds.


We could somehow imagine how the surface of moon looks like.


"Shall not we turn left?"


Seriously, FuFu couldn't find any more word to describe.


But deeply, slowly and truly appreciating the greatness of nature.


And also, snapping here and there.


From every different angle.


Aiming any object as well.


We're standing at the summit plateau.


Enjoying the view with Kundasang small town.


Sometime the swirling clouds could obstruct visibility.


Oh my gosh, this is so picturesque.


Everyone needs companions to live together. Have you find yours?


"Glad i have you guys walking side by side with me."


Wow, in front of us was a great mountain formation.


Love her pose and it makes the picture so awesome!


Hohoho, FuFu is the Ultraman.


The joint shooting of Nautica and NIKE on the peak of the mountain.


Lovely shot. As if the hurdle race on the peak.


The few pebbles piled up thingy can be spotted everywhere.


Amazingly, the pebbles won't fall despite the strong wind.


Donkey Ears Peak looks like a couple facing to Low'sPeak.


Nice shot of Bill snapping pictures.


Well captured! Awesome.


This trip enlightened FuFu, human beings are actually very tiny.


The goat shaped clouds.


Wonder how we managed to climb up all the way from Timpohon.


While waiting Bill, we enjoyed the view over the Kundasang village.


Simply love the picturesque scenery.


"Errr... call us a helicopter and send me back to KK downtown."


NIKE's advertisement again. LOL


"HELP. Call 911 immediately please."


FuFu's expression was not very good!!!


The guide taught us the technique how to get down faster.


It's easier to get down if you move backwards.


Wow, it's so romantic.


FuFu, Pui and the toys.


Phew, the guide too was amazed by the gorgeous view.


The swirling clouds started to obstruct the visibility.


It's time to get down for breakfast before 10am.


We're the last few climbers to reach the check point.


The check point officer was waiting us to close the gate.


The four of us at the check point of Sayat-Sayat.


The guide, Benjamin with Yan and her toys.


We're leaving the checkpoint.


Roof of the resthouse gradually could be seen as we descending.


It took us more than three hours getting down from the Low's peak.


The place we had spent a night at - Gunting Lagadan Hut.


After a quick breakfast, we went out to the balcony for pictures.


FuFu & Honey (from Hongkong).


FuFu and Yan (from Hongkong).


FuFu and Pui (from Hongkong).


FuFu and Parry (from Hongkong).


FuFu, Pui and Peggy (Klang, Malaysia).


Miss Hongkong - the winner, first and second runner up.


It's time to get ready descending the mountain.


Last but not least, took the pictures of FuFu's permit card.


FuFu will probably challenge the Via Ferrata next time.


We started climbing down from Laban Rata at 1030am.


Sayonara Laban Rata and Low's Peak.


FuFu couldn't stop taking pictures again, again and all over again.


It's the mossy paradise of drifting clouds, phew.


The view of sea of clouds are perfectly great.


A friend snapped me from the resthouse.


It's my turn to snap them climbing down.


Our target was to climb down as fast as we could.


The awesome scenery along the way climbing down.


We're descending to the altitude of stunted trees.


The lovely cotton tree FuFu met again.


Realised that we hadn't taken any pictures with the guides.


Here our guides Felix and Benjamin, thanks for everything!


Yeah sayonara to the peaks of Mount Kinabalu.

How much we have climbed up equals to how much we need to descend. You may say climbing down is always faster or easier, but it was same at least for us. We took both six hour climbing up and down (pending on fitness level individually). Though the average climbing time from Timpohon Gate to Laban Rata takes about four to five hours.


Issac and Honey reached the goal as 3rd and 4th climbers.


FuFu was not bad at all, the fifth to finish the Timpohon trail.


Yeah, the 6th, 7th and 8th.


Thanks God, we all still in one-piece, although looked exhausted.

LZ said...

OMG that's so so fun!!
Aiks I saw your frens all wrapped up like dumplings, but you were just with your thin jacket? Isit really not so cold up there?

I just hiked up a mountain here about 420m high, it was cold at the peak not because of the temperature but the strong wind!

fufu said...

Nick尼克仔 : 以後如果你去的話
要記得告訴我哦
我也想要回去爬多一次
因爲日出還沒有看到哦
讓我帶你上去看日出...
因爲老天爺就是我的乾爹 XD
大自然真的很神奇...
力量無敵...我喜歡 =)
老天爺對我真的很好噢...
那個天真的很美麗
還有小羊的雲朵
風景簡直絕景令人震撼咯
在山頂看到的都很清楚很清晰
看到都很感動....差一點流淚...
大佬富出來行走江湖那麽多年了
一定有很多武林高手的朋友

沒有時間立刻把他們一一寫上來
慢慢來吧...如果一下子看完了
以後就沒有話題了 =)


LZ : good question you have asked here =) well it will be answered in the next episode... okok...erm...i like cold weather actually...probably i have been used to the weather after living in japan for 5yrs... i also cant explain why... i even wore very less in the winter while all my japanese friends on thick jacket

yeah it was damn so great standing on the peak... but while taking pictures... we were all shaking...too chilly because of the wind @.@ btw 420m is not high but in europe it could be very cold ya if there's strong wind =)

幼幼 said...

我想我这一世人都不可能爬上去的了。
看看你的照片过过干瘾好了。

tamiya said...

我朋友爬了五六次都没有看过日出,很难的,因为雾太多了。。。
我之前去也没有看到日出。我五点多一点就抵达了,是当天最早抵达的亚洲旅客。。。

Wois said...

"By about 6am, i reached the final destination.?"

what time u guys started? i reached the peak about 4.55.

"the highest point of Mount Kinabalu, the summit of Borneo at 4095.2m is Low's Peak."

神山高4101米。Low Peak不是最高点。最高点很危险,不让游客爬。

你爬错季节啦!4月开始进入季候风和雨季。该次来的时候,记得在年头一月还是二月,要不然就是7八月,九月开始进入雨季。。。但你算幸运了,听顽童说,他的朋友上个月因为下雨不能上顶峰呢!

神山上有一口小积水的凹洞,不深,没看到吗?人家说那是许愿池呢!我曾踩下去。哈哈

好像很多风景你都无法拍到。。又很可惜呢!

[SK] said...

wow, so proud and happy for you!! one day i will be conquering Mt KK.. have been talking about this for years, and yet no action yet, hahahaha :p

Wois said...

tamiya:
其实不难看到,是你朋友来错季节吧!
该次叫他旱季来。。。一月最正。

fufu said...

幼幼 : 你一定可以的哦
因爲有很多auntie uncle 都成功上到去
你多運動鍛煉身體
一定可以上到去的哦


tamiya : 哈哈哈哈 可能你朋友跟太陽沒有緣分咯... 希望我下一次去可以看到日出 =p anyway...你有沒有看到日出呢?


Wois : we started at 3am i guess... =) a bit late...but lucky we went up late if not we will be climbing down already before the sky clear up for us... =p anyway a great climb though we couldnt see the sunrise

low's peak... yeah ok i know it's not the highest point!! the highest point of low's peak =)

我有看到那個小积水的凹洞....因爲當時還是很大務...所以我們沒有去...好怕會有危險咯...下一次一定會去那邊許願了 =p

哈哈哈哈 以後悔1-2月去神山了...
well 我們已經看到很多美景了
老天爺好對我不錯呢...
真的很高興 =)

fufu said...

SK : hehehe...we had a fun time up there on the summit *o* yeah you should take action now...start planning the trip!! but if you have been working out... guess it should be not a problem for you to go up the summit =p


Wois : okok 知道了
以後一定會計劃1月去 =)

haanism said...

great conquer and nice pics at mount KK. i used to put this as one of my to-do tasks, but i think i can't make it. even small hill almost kills me. don't say mount kk :P

fufu said...

haanism : it's not that hard to climb the mountain... bet you could do so as i saw many uncles and aunts climbing too... just read the next episode and consider again the trip to mt. kinabalu ok?

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E said...

fufu said...

K|E|E|N|Y|E|E : yeah i had a superb great trip with my friends.... *v* thanks god the weather was great so i could take such nice pictures... *though couldnt see the sunrise* >.<

tamiya said...

我去那时候去沙巴玩十一天,十天下雨,包括上下神山的时候。我们去到哪里,那里就一定下雨,离谱。

所以我也没有看到日出,但日出过后,雾突然散去,也看到和你一样的景色。。。

Serina said...

WoW~哇~wow~ 简直是仙境嘛!
我现在要好好地锻炼身体了,要不然无法到达最高峰! 哈

fufu said...

tamiya : hahhahaha
4月的沙巴很悶熱
沒有下雨... =)
但是你可以看到雾突然散去的風景也不錯嗎
日出以後再去看咯... *d*


Serina : hahahahaa
你一定要好好鍛煉哦
希望你可以到達神山尖峰 *w*

(=.= 被逼的~ 因为有一次偶不小心浮出了水面,被逮到。)

FuFu,你好幸福哦~ ^^
站在神山山顶,肯定很感动吧?
偶就无法拥有这份感动了~
爬山,偶真的不行啦~~
=.=|||

不过,神山,偶爱你~

=.= 晕掉~~~~~~

seow said...

FUFU的装束很潮哦,你的伙伴们都穿得厚厚的。赞!!我也要去爬神山~~

Wois said...

I found mistake.

"The highest mountain in Southeast Asia, this gorgeous granite massif stands at 4095.2m tall"

the highest moutain in Southeast asia is
1.Hkakabo Razi 5881m in Burma
2.Puncak Jaya 5030m, Indonesia
3. Trikora 4751m, Indonesia
4. Mandala 4701m, Indonesia
5. Mt. Kinabalu 4101m, Malaysia

Kinabalu Mountain is not formed by granite. It is granodiorite (intermediate-felsic rock), but granite is acidic rock (whiten than granodiorite), different leh

:P
some tour information tak boleh harap. i think u get those information from tour.... :P

fufu said...

佐瑟琳 : hahhahahaha
很高興你戒了潛水哦
guess what?? 我也要去爬升旗山 =)
如果你可以爬多一點升旗山...
一定會可以上到神山的哦


seow : 很潮? 那當然咯
畢竟也在日本住了5年 =P
因爲我不怕冷 =)
所以穿的很薄咯
神山你要很早就plan的哦


Wois : wow...hey...the highest mountain in southeast asia is not mt kinabalu??? walao...i learned thi at school one la... did i make the mistake of the highest mountain on borneo?? must be borneo!! i always telling my friends our tmt. kinabalu is the highest in southeast asia though =.="

ahhaha i double checked already.... mt. Kinabalu is formed by granite la...as what wikipedia says =p

Wois said...

the highest peak in southeast asia is in burma lah. the school book is wrong one lah. maybe the author geography is very bad...

u believe wikipedia more than this geologist... wakaka!!! u can ask wikipedia to change their wrong information loh.

granodiorite is similar to granite, but they are different rocks. if u want detain rock name, i can give u now. the rock of kinabalu mountain is hornblende granodiorite, hornblende adamellite and biotite granodiorite, crisscrossed by very cool dikes of a plagioclase tonalite porphyry.

see this http://www.jstor.org/pss/75413 for basic knowledge about Kinabalu rock type lah....

佐瑟琳 said...

我爬山?难啦~
我的体力超差的~~~~
你爬升旗山应该很轻松吧?
Easy Job~~~~

fufu said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
fufu said...

Wois : wahahahha.... okokok...now i know that our mt. kinabalu is not the highest in SE asia la...but a prominent one ok??

of course i believe you la, mr. great geologist!!! but just it information i got from mt. kk and the wiki also say it is granite... but maybe it's just a very simple way to explain to normal people...

how many of us know hornblende granodiorite, hornblende adamellite or biotite granodiorite?? but if you say granite...then we roughly know what is that... just like the scientific name for the floras and faunas also... kk has many species of orchids... how many of us know Lobelia Boneensis(type of orchids)??? but if you say kind of orchids then everyone knows about it

sorry...i should do more homework on it... anyway but quite happy also because at least i have reader who really thoroughly read my blog...thanks =p



佐瑟琳 : 那你應該多做運動咯
運動對身體好 =)
我一定會挑戰升旗山的
等我!!!希望可以拍很多美麗照片咯

Wois said...

KK Mt is prominent, this is right. it is the highest peak in Borneo, and malaysia, also right.

but granite and granodiorite are different mah. how come their are same leh, not even same family? they r not same type leh. some ppl says it is a volcanic rock, worse.

if u give wrong information to your reader, next time maybe ur reader will repeat the same mistake again, in future, no body know the real type of rock of kk mt. u r so lucky to meet me here, at least u can get the right information from me... wakakaka

remember, granite and granodiorite is different. not even same family.

穷光蛋市长 said...

哇~好羡慕哦!虽然我不会看英文,但我能感受到那你们的喜悦啦!哈哈……^^

可是爬到那么高不会很辛苦吗?

回复你:对啊!真的不要劝人离婚!很不好!

♥ DolphinE ♥ said...

跳跃那张很好看哦~
有一张云的照片好像牛~哈哈

fufu said...

Wois : yeah... still the highest in Malaysia ya =) i am so proud of mt. kinabalu...

okok already corrected the granodiorite part, afterall, i doubt the readers will real care the granite or granodiorite thingy...

anyhow thanks for the info!! real useful =) i had given all the knowledge about 地質學 to my professor already..... i check the jpnese-english dictionary... granite is 花崗石 in jpnese... =) yeah kinda looks like 花崗石 lol



穷光蛋市长 : 你不會英文???
學校沒有教你?? oh my god!!
我的英文不會很深吧....
anyway...yeah 真的很開心可以爬到上去神山哦... 一點都不辛苦 =) 你也可以上到頂峰的哦 =p 教人打大孩子可以但是不要叫人離婚....


DolphinE : yeah 想不到我們竟然會在頂峰上跳哦... 那個雲...我們看到像羊/三豬/牛 =) 大自然真的很神奇哦

Vin vin said...

初次到访!
恭喜你爬到顶了哦!
我也爬过了3次~
不过有一次没有到顶因为身体有点不适。
哈哈!
不过因为听说上山的路有3个。
我上过你上的,也上过另外一条路。
另一条路比你上的多2km不过路比较好走,风景也比较美!至于第3条路我就不清楚,因为没上过,只是听人家说过。
不过我从第2条路也是用了6个钟到Laban Rata哦!
你有喝到那边的山水吗?
在tangki里面的。不错喝~
期待你的下个帖!
我是sabahan~ 不过在KL读书~ 嘻嘻!

fufu said...

Vin vin : 歡迎光臨
第三條應該是用網絲爬上去的吧
我下一次一定會從mesilau上山的咯
因爲那邊的風景比較美麗 =)
山水沒有喝到咯
anyway相信laban rata的水都是山水吧 =p
hahahaha 喜歡我的部落就要多來看看
然後留言哦 *d*
sabah人.... okok

Vin vin said...

对对对!
所谓的第2条路就是mesilau!
一时忘了~
第3条路好像是在national park附近的。
okok~
laban rata的已经烧过了~
没有烧过的会有点甜甜的味道~
还有你也回复得太快了吧。。。
我才留言不到2分钟。。。
link你了~

fufu said...

Vin vin : laban rata 的已經燒過了??
有那麽多煤氣給他他們燒嗎??
我看他們沒有燒...除非是溫水
因爲要錢給porter帶東西上去的哦
yeah thanks for the link ya!

Vin vin said...

用kettle的~哈哈!
因为不烧得话,有些人会喝到不适。
其实山水没那么干净。
所以在上山的那些tangki都写"drink at ur own risk"
不过他们的porter cost是under sutera集团的,所以不用担心。。。
sutera太有钱了~

fufu said...

Vin vin : oic... sutera集團很有錢?
難怪我們的住宿那麽的貴啦
原來他賺我們的錢那麽多... >.<
anyway 我只有喝到瀑布的水罷了
都還好...很清涼的 =p

Vin vin said...

不然他们的钱哪里来?
不过你这次的fees是多少呢?
我第一次爬的时候是RM95包括吃,睡,爬~
然后最后一次是RM250。。。
才2年就起到那么够力!
不过现在应该没有RM500都不能上了吧?
在kk town area有个5星级的resort就是sutera的啦!

The World 记忆里的空间Of Memory said...

reply...to fufu said:对。。stpm真的很好。。

你也是喜欢爬山的吗?

fufu said...

Vin vin : 我的應該是rm288++
都不知道了 因爲是朋友請的
哈哈哈哈
他們有一位朋友不想去
又給了錢...我就不浪費去了
因爲我沒有預算去沙巴的
真的很高興我有機會去到
真的有了一個難忘的旅程
現在還很想念我的朋友們
不知道他們還記得這旅程嗎??
kk的消費很貴了...
因爲有很多遊客進來了...



记忆里的空间 : 我喜歡大自然
爬山可以跟大自然交流心靈的哦
所以我喜歡爬山 =)

寒雨 said...

山上的风景宛如仙境,让人如此着迷......
希望有一天也有机会站在那充满诗意的顶端......

fufu said...

寒雨 : 頂峰的風景真的很漂亮咯
看到我們都傻去了 =)
你真的要親身去神山看看這些美景哦
我還想再回去看看哦...因爲宜點都不難爬 *o*
值得爬的咯...保證你不會後悔 =p

tunadolphi said...

哇。。哇。。哇。。真是太美了!What a magnificent view! 我要去!!(不过不知道什么时候。。:P)

fufu said...

tunadolphi : 神山的風景真的很漂亮
真的很值得去看看哦
我朋友說最好1-2月去咯
因爲是旱季, 不會下雨, 可以看到日出哦
但是都是看運氣的咯
希望你可以去哦+看到日出


ws : hey =p you wrote to me before... erm well report my article?? why not you just copy and paste the link of my articles?? isnt that much better??

寒雨 said...

嗯,下次得找些志趣相投的朋友去!

fufu said...

寒雨 : 對呀 跟一班好朋友去真的感覺很好的哦... 希望你可以玩得開心咯 =)

JiaXin said...


这次我的留言也很后面耶
失落
haha
谢谢你的关心哦^^
可是我的病还没好耶
还是大感冒
害怕中A型流感
haha
应该没这么好彩吧?^^
你拍的照片
很美耶
看了简直有一种冲动想去征服它
但也得等我考完SPM先
haiz
听去过的朋友说
他们爬上去时都选择凌晨的哦
因为早上看到那个路会很害怕
是真的吗?
他们也说怕神山也只能爬一次
因为再也没那勇气去征服了
神山的路真的有将可怕哦?
要去槟城了哦你?
超羡慕的可以去将多地方^^

Carenlie said...

wait wait wait again~~~~
hope tat i can travel all the place fufu have traveled 1 day!!!!arh~~~~~

遥遥Chloe Chan said...

好美丽哦
但我不会爬上去,太累了,怕冷

Yih Yann said...

Wah...finally is at the peak...your photos all very nice...do your toe hurt? my fren hurt his toe when coming down

The World 记忆里的空间Of Memory said...

to fufu:你也是喜欢爬山的。。。阿哈。。

fufu said...

JiaXin : 哈哈哈哈 那還很小咯
現在應該讀好你的書
spm 後還有很多時間慢慢的玩
如果現在不努力讀書
以後一定沒有機會去玩的了
神山頂峰是要淩晨3點開始怕
然後6點左右就看日出*如果看到的話*
見仁見智咯...我喜歡大自然
我一定會再回去神山的...因爲害沒有看到日出
對呀...很快就會去檳城看看咯
希望可以拍好的照片給你們看咯 =)


Carenlie : hahahhaa yeah...sure you will have the chance to visit those places i have been ya =) all the best lol


遥遥Chloe Chan : erm... 穿多一點后的衣服就不會冷了 =) 如果你怕的話...可以先爬一些比較矮的山...幾次後你一定會習慣然後一定可以上到神山的哦

fufu said...

Yih Yann : yeah finally the peak ya...and there's another part for mt. kinabalu...wish you would like it also... =) the trip in sabah is going to be finished though... anyway i didnt hurt my toes... but my friends did! need to be extra careful when you climb down


记忆里的空间 : 對呀 我喜歡爬山
因爲可以跟大自然的距離會接近的

SuwEi said...

Awesome man!我现在就想飞去神山!哈哈!应该还不可以吧,气都还没练好,呵呵!
凌晨两点钟就得起来爬山,太早了吧。。为什么照片显得山顶只有你们的人,没有其他游客爬吗?也想知道配套费用多少,多谢师父!哈哈!

fufu said...

SuwEi : 哈哈哈哈 如果你怕的話
應該鍛煉好身體才去神山哦
因爲可以看到的風景真的很漂亮
爬神山應該要rm350-400
住宿蠻貴的哦
我們是逗留很長時間的那幾個咯
其他人都已經走了
我們還在哪兒拍照 =) hihihi
那邊的風景實在太美麗了

SuwEi said...

没问题,本人平时上山成绩不错,应该不成问题,哈哈!
另外,导游是另聘请的吗?350包括住宿吗。。不好意思,问题问多了,要计划计划下而已。。呵呵!

fufu said...

SuwEi : rm 350-400是整個爬山的費用吧
因爲住宿+4餐一個人都要將近300(大概是...因爲是朋友送我的生日禮物)...然後爬山費+保險+導遊....我們8個人就要400多...然後如果你要挑夫幫你們拿東西上下山就要另外給錢....所以一個人要rm 350-400

ops...還有證書rm 10, 來回kk - mt.kinabalu 交通費是rm15去 + rm20回...爬山不是便宜的哦

小魚海洋 said...

just can said it's too cool~!
thanks so much for sharing....
I love the nature too
the pictures are too charming!!

fufu said...

小魚海洋 : hahaha...yeah i think it once reached below 0'C on the summit!! =) anyway since i love cold weather so it was alright for me, at least!! erm well... you should go to kinabalu park if you like nature ya... so many flora and fauna to see =p hihihi thanks for loving my pictures...some of them are taken by my friends

SuwEi said...

谢,现在完全有idea了,可以去咯!哈哈!

karenc 采茶女 said...

上面好像另一个世界酱。很美很美。

fufu said...

SuwEi : 不客氣... 希望你可以看到日出咯
還有有個愉快地旅程哦 =p


karenc 采茶女 : 對呀真的好像仙境般
真的不想回家... =) 太美麗了

JiaXin said...

是咯
我还有很多时间可以浪费啊
haha
等你看你去槟城的照片哦^^
拍多一点美的照片给我看哦^^
有日出看感觉应该不同吧
一定很美

~叶小~ said...

Succeeded!! Congratez.. Da 3am climb's weather was realy cold.. Til everyone was wearing tightly lik gonna freezing soon.. Haha.. N fogs did cover in between faces while capturing pics.. Mm.. Well.. Da peak wif blue clouds was pretty stunning.. Awesome!! Love it much..

凡人館長《志強 cHeeKeOng》 said...

真的很厲害
爬山就不是我想要的啦!

十六夜真人 said...

上面的風景真漂亮
尤其是那個云海


唉~
不知道我的神山行幾時才出發呢
哈哈

小东.6am said...

嗯...
以后我也要找个机会爬上去才行!
我喜欢冷冷的感觉...
爬上去有征服的感觉!

fufu said...

JiaXin : okok 一定會去檳城拍很多照片
然後回來跟你們分享的哦
好好的讀你的書啦...

叶小 : yeah i was on the summit =p ok, almost everyone left in between 2.30-3am just for the sunrise but unluckily we couldnt see it...well anyway we still lucky enough to see the spectacular view on the summit ya... had a great time there... =) it's cold but we still managed to come back XD


凡人館長 : 哈哈哈哈 爲什麽呢??
爬神山不是那麽難罷了哦....

fufu said...

十六夜真人 : 頂峰看下來的風景真的很震撼 =p 雲海真的看到動人....沒想到自己會站高過雲的咯... 你應該要早一點計劃哦... 有時閒+趁年輕就要上去看看... 不然年起大了就會比較辛苦咯 =)


小东 : 如果你喜歡冷冷的感覺就穿少一點咯... 爬上去真的感覺特別好... 看到的風景非常漂亮咯... 有機會你一定要自己去看看哦 XD 希望你看到日出咯

小雪 said...

照片好美啊。。。
但是很高。。。我晕。。。

3ugene said...

那么早起来爬山?
如果我上到去一定吓晕了/
好高哦~

海市蜃樓 said...

得四個攻頂,其他隊員呢?去曬邊啊?睇唔到日出有d可惜,不過能夠攻到頂已經好o力啦,好嘢!

係呢,KK張證書要卑錢嗎?

晴天 said...

哇, 真的好羡慕你可以到那里去。。;p

Agnes Sim said...

wow...穿牛仔裤去怕哦!厉害。照片都拍得好美哦!;-)

Bengbeng said...

congrats u caught the attention of others thru the contents of yr blog so much so they want to repost some of yr articles. congrats!

Shelyn said...

fufu said...

小雪 : 如果你有喂高的話就不可以爬神山了... 唯有看看照片罷了... =)



3ugene : 哈哈哈 早上早起身就會暈??
早一點睡咯 =) anyway...神山一定要爬的哦
如果你有機會去的話...一定會喜歡 =p



海市蜃樓 : 只有我們四個成功上到頂峰罷了... 其他的四個到sayat sayat check point 罷了...還有一位到了KM8 咯 =p 看不到日出有點可惜但是還好有漂亮風景看...那個證書要RM10買咯... 有點貴!!!

fufu said...

晴天 : 你也可以去那邊的哦
除了爬山還有很多活動的咯 =)


Agnes Sim : 對呀... 牛仔褲也可以爬山 =) 頂峰的景色真的很美麗...天氣又好所以照片拍得很美咯...真的很幸福... =p


Bengbeng : but i would prefer them to post my link rather than repost my article... i doubt them will mention it was taken from my blog...as i dont see the source of the author end of the article >.< still wondering to agree or not...

fufu said...

Shelyn : yeah a comfortable one!! i wore jeans too when i climb mt. Fuji 6yrs ago =) i found no problem with jeans...or just only FuFu *o*

布莱恩 said...

漂亮。

toto said...

大自然真的是鬼斧神功,你们最后没得欣赏峰顶的日出,很可惜。
你拍照也很有自己的创意,只是有些部份的演技有待加强,加油了。
槟城,要玩得尽兴哦。

fufu said...

布莱恩 : 神山的頂峰鎮的很漂亮美麗動人 =)


toto : 大自然真的是鬼斧神功!
i love 神山 =p
我有不一樣的風格 XD
拍的照片也有我FuFu的風味
哈哈哈 有時候也要跟攝影師有默契
好的演員沒有好的導演是不可以的哦
我一定會好好的去檳城玩哦
一定會拍照片給你們看

lock said...

上次我去, 凌晨兩點出發那段路程我沒有拍到照片!

你那張cert, 我也有, 哈哈!

fufu said...

lock : 那你就要在我這裡看看照片回味回味一下咯... 有相機在手就一定要拍照咯... 不然就會錯過了一些精彩的鏡頭哦....

害羞男孩 said...

说来话长,之前觉得文章留言板很麻烦,以前的留言板不方便,只有Google member才可留言,现在可以了,可是我的Setting改不回来了。。。没办法,试过很多种方法了,所以只好放弃。。。
激流玩过了。。。下次也许只会潜吧。。。。毕竟沙巴的海实在美极了。。。尤其是Sipadan岛和Lankayan岛。。。

fufu said...

害羞男孩 : okok....我應該尊重你的咯
因爲那是你的部落...
但是也希望你可以方便朋友留言給你
chatbox可以放在第一面的咯
因爲不需要再進入你的聊天室
anyway...這是我的愚見罷了
希望你能夠換另一個template
方便我們給你的文章留言 =p
下次我也會去sipadan lanlayan 看看的
因爲我比較喜歡海+陽光+海底世界
我要做beach boy lol

Anonymous said...
