“A journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu.
On the 14th of June, my cousins and I set off to climb Mount Kinabalu. We took the 9km Mesilau route to Laban Rata. It felt like a miracle when we finally saw our resthouse! From here, it’s approximately 2.5km up to the top of the mountain, which, ironically, is called “Low’s Peak.” We’ll begin our final ascend at 2am. So after dinner, we tried our best to catch some sleep.
Our journey up Mount Kinabalu had begun long before we even set foot at the base of the mountain. We’ve been training hard for this. Some, for months! So I liked how my friend put it, “You’re already halfway there!”
However, it’s a different story once you’re on location, looking up at one of the tallest mountains in South East Asia. Us first timers were freaking out.
