Mount Kinabalu

Kinabalu Day 1 : Timpohon Gate to Laban Rata
Kinabalu Day 2 : Laban Rata to Low's Peak

Mount Kinabalu


UNESCO Mount Kinabalu (elevation : 4095m) is the highest mountain in Malaysia (both by prominence as well as sheer elevation), and is also the highest mountain between the Himalayas and New Guinea. Based on topographic prominence, Mount Kinabalu also happens to be the 20th highest mountain in the world, but only the third highest mountain in Southeast Asia behind Hkakabo Razi (elevation : 5881m) in Myanmar, and Puncak Jaya (elevation : 4884m), also known as Carstensz Pyramid, in Indonesia. Mount Kinabalu is basically a massive granite intrusion (or a pluton to be precise) that was formed when magma solidified underground before being thrust upwards through the Earth's crust by tectonic movements millions of years ago.

Mount Tok Nenek (Single)


The TNBYY Loop


Mount Tok Nenek (elevation: 1904m) is well-known for the spectacular 360-degree views that its jagged summit has to offer. The hike to the summit follows a fairly well-established route that heads north-westwards towards the peak. Once you reach the peak, you either turn around to follow the same route back down (called 'Tok Nenek Single'), or continue northwards on to the peaks of Bubu (elevation: 1974m) and Yong Yap (elevation: 2168m), before arcing back around towards the start (called the TNBYY loop or YYBTN if hiked counter-clockwise). The long, Titwangsa v2 hike also shares the western sections of the TNBYY Loop. Read more

The Cape to Cape Track


Cape to Cape Track The Cape to Cape Track is a 135 km long trail that runs North-South along the West coast of the peninsula between Cape Naturaliste in the North, and Cape Leeuwin in the South. The trail itself mostly follows sweeping, windswept limestone ridges and long stretches of seemingly untouched, pristine beaches. It does however occasionally mix it up by looping inland through woodland and gorgeous karri forests.

Even carrying all the food for the entire hike (without food drop-offs), I personally would categorise the end-to-end hike of the Cape to Cape as fairly straightforward. This is mainly because the terrain Read more

EBC Day 14 – Gokyo & Gokyo Ri

EBC Index

The Ngozumpa Glacier


I slept for ages that night, going to sleep around 18:00 just after dinner and waking up around 06:00 the next morning. I am accustomed to getting about six hours of sleep every night, so such a long duration is very unusual and was an indication that the Cho La pass must have taken a toll on me. The 'Khumbu cough' had also finally caught up to me, leaving my throat not just dry but also a little phlegmy. Read more
