I just came back from a trip to east Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu. The main purpose of this trip is to hike the Mt. Kinabalu. At 4,095 meter above sea level, Mt. Kinabalu is the highest mountain in South East Asia.

I took a MetaGPS M2 and a Nikon D90 with me for the trip. I also took a Nokia E71 with a GPS logging software called: gpsed (www.gpsed.com).

The hike started at Timpohom gate at 1,860 meter above sea level. I spend 5 hours to reach Laban Rata Guest house at 3,400 meter above sea level. I spent the night there. I had three meals (a dinner, a super at 1:30am the second day and a breakfast, at 9:00am after summit). After a light rest, I started the summit push at 2:30am the second day and reached the summit Low’s Peak at 6:30am.

Here is the picture at the Low’s Peak of Mt. Kinabalu.
