Reach the Laban Rata at 12.30am with another two members from my team. I am surprise that I can reach here in a little over 3 1/2 hours. After reached here, I'm hungry, regret that I did not carry the lunch pack which prepare by the park.

My friends and I and sit in something like a ski lodge for another 4 hours, stretching our legs, drinking tea, and taking pictures, watching clouds move through the lodge was amazing, especially during sunset

十二点半,与两位同伴同时抵达 “拉班拉达” 。我很满意对于自己用三小时半的时间抵达这里。现在这我,有高兴,又饿,又累。后悔没有把准备的食物带来这里。

我喝朋友们在这里休息,拍照,喝茶,欣赏云海,吹冷风。这里的风景很漂亮,尤其是黄昏时的云海。

I'm so happy that my brother Jason and his wife are joining me on this exploration to Mount Kinabalu. This is the first time they go for hike, so I promise them that I will bring them to the summit!!

Recommendation:
  1. For the packed lunch, please bring it together with you regardless how full you are after the buffet breakfast, cause when you reach Laban Rata, you will definitely feel hungry. (One bowl of instant noodles cost RM12, soft drink cost RM7 at Laban Rata restaurant)
  2. For beginner hikers, I strongly recommend you rent a walking stick at the Timpohon starting point for RM10, cause it will come in handy, trust me ;)
  3. It will be hot when you ascent, try not to wear thick clothes and pants at this stage, you will sweat a lot.
  4. Get some sweets, and eat em when you feel tired


我很开心我的弟弟和他的太太也参与我这次的冒险,这是他们第一次登山。我答应他们一定会带他们到山顶!!!

建议

  1. 在未登记处,将会分派食物。记得一定要带,你到了“拉班拉达”后会很饿。拉班拉达是大本营,这里的快熟面十二块钱,汽水七块钱。
  2. 我也建议在起点租一枝登山拐杖(马币十块钱)对你一定有用,相信我 😉。
  3. 从起点开始登山,你会流汗,感觉热。记得不必穿太厚的衣服。
  4. 带一点糖果在身,登山时可以含在嘴里,糖分可以给你能量。

The hike starts at 2am, after I went back to room to rest at 9.00pm, but I didn't fall asleep at all. Staying awake the whole night. 

Headache from altitude sickness are scary, it will stop you from ascent to the Kinabalu Summit, you need to stop it before it gets worse. 

For me, I had mild headache, I don’t enjoy taking medication, but before things turns bad,  I pop 2 panadols plus 1 clarinase (for flu), and fortunately it subsided.

  4. Undergarment
  5. Heattech warm pants
  6. Polyester long pants
  7. Waterproof, windproof gloves.
  8. Cap, with polyester towel warping my ears (recommend use a fleece hat)
  9. Toe socks, and a pars of good grip hiking shoes (I use Jeep hiking shoes)

隔天凌晨两点必需起身准备登山,我大约九点就回房休息,但是我就是睡不着。
高山症你会头疼,这会影响你的体能。如果你感到开始头疼,必需赶快吃药。
而我当天就是有感到些不舒服,我赶快吃两颗头疼药,然后才慢慢的回复正常。

我攻顶穿的衣服
  1. 保暖长袖衣(第一层)
  2. 聚酯纤维长袖衣(第二层)

  4. 内衣裤
  5. 保暖裤子
  6. 涤纶长裤
  7. 防水,防风手套。
  8. 鸭嘴帽,聚酯纤维的毛巾来让耳朵保暖(建议使用羊毛帽)

All the hikers are dressed like to go skiing. After five minutes of climbing, flashlights in hand, most of us strip down to a more reasonable early spring day. After ten minutes of climbing, My brother is covered in a layer of sweat.

所有的登山客都武装到像要去滑雪似的。出发之后的五分钟,我们都开始把外套脱掉,不透气,太热了。我的弟弟也是流了满身大汗。
DSC_0109wtmk
It gets warm when we start hike, so I recommend you keep your warm clothes in your backpack at first. Only wear it when you feel that the wind are strong.

刚开始登山时,我建议你先把外套放进你的背包。当你感觉冷时才拿出来穿。
DSC_0113wtmk
As I gain more altitude, I look down and see a trail of white dots moving slowly up the mountain, and looking up I see a similar trail snaking back and forth up the rock face, a parade of flashlights leading up to the star line on the peak, absolute amazing!!!

当我们迈向更高时,我往下看。由多个头灯组成一条灯的线路,望上看也是一样。一阵闪闪的光茫一座连接到高峰,好特别。
DSC_0116wtmk
Sayat-Sayat check point, please remember to reach here not later than 4am. If not the park ranger might stop you from ascent up the summit.

最后一个检查点,“萨亚特” 检查点。你必需在凌晨四点前到此签到,不然就不够时间继续登到神山顶峰了。
DSC_0119wtmk
KM8.0 and last 0.5KM to go, the biting wind are strong up there, my lip gets dry easily. Almost sunrise, I look at the sky and glad that the weather is good.

我赶了八公里的路,还有半公里就到山峰了。这里寒风刺骨。我的嘴唇一下子就干燥,风很大。就快天亮了,我抬头望,天气很好。
DSC_0123wtmk
At 5.50am first signs of light appear from the clouds on the horizon, I called my brother to look at the horizon, he asked me to proceed to ascent to summit with out him, but I said we go, we go as a Team! of we proceed our

早上五点五十分,黎明破晓后的第一道光在远处的地平线慢慢的升起。我呼叫跟在我后面的弟弟看那个地平线。他叫我不要理他,要我自己继续前进到最高处看日出。我告诉他我们一起来,就要一起到顶峰。我们是一个团队!
DSC_0124wtmk
We are above the clouds now, sunrise happens at 6.10am today, and to be able to witness sunrise on a high altitude, this is my best sunrise experience ever...

云朵都在我们的脚下,早上六点十分。太阳公公出来了。这是我有生以来看到最漂亮的日出。
DSC_0138wtmk
Low's peak its just a few steps away, I keep on encouraging my brother to go forward, because we are almost there.

建议

  1. 最后一天攻顶时,带一小瓶水就够了。越轻越好。
  2. 记得带润唇膏,山顶的风很干燥。
  3. 保护你的脸部免受风吹,可以使用羊毛帽。
  4. 如果感觉头疼,赶快服药。
  5. 带一点糖果在身,登山时可以含在嘴里,糖分可以给你能量。

这是就会考研你的能耐了,因为必需从最高点,下到山脚下。你在下午四点后还没抵达,就会被罚款。

DSC_0141wtmk
As the sun rise higher over the clouds, we get a sight that we usually witness when we go for airplane rides. It looks as though we’re sitting on the peak of a rock island in a sea of clouds. The mountain has a concave slope that drops right off the edge into the clouds.

当太阳高挂在天空后,这里会有一道景观。我们就像坐在一座石山上,被云层包围这下方。山有一个凹坡,从边缘落入云层。这个景色会永远逗留在我的脑海里。
