$210.00 – $2,700.00
Mount Kinabalu is a prominent mountain on the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia. It is located in the East Malaysian state of Sabah and is protected as Kinabalu Park, a World Heritage Site. Kinabalu is the highest peak in Borneo’s Crocker Range and is the highest mountain in the Malay Archipelago as well as the highest mountain in Malaysia. Mount Kinabalu is also the 20th most prominent mountain in the world by topographic prominence. In 1997, a re-survey using satellite technology established its summit (known as Low’s Peak) height at 4,096 meters (13,438 ft) above sea level according to the Malaysians you only need to be a moderate fitness level to do climb the summit, not true at all. This was a gruelling climb, we arrived at a point to acclimatise then at 3 in the morning woke up to climb to the summit. We were given some nutritious food in the form of Beef Rendang for energy. Once at the top this view was amazing, anchoring my tripod was a task as there wasn’t much room, once I did though I went for it. I was quite inexperienced with this kind of photography and I learned a lot from it.
