We woke up about 5.45am. Preparing ourselves for bfast and a loooong journey. We were having buffet bfast (In package).
Ready for a long journey.. ;-p (Jangan lawan kasut 'guide'.. Adidas Kampung tau!!!)
The lady in purple pants is our guide.. Small size lady.. Named Lina.. ^_^
Everyone will have their name tag. Must wear this all the time. Need to show this in certain stop.
(Jeez.. I need manicure T_T)
We request for porter to carry our bag. Price will be RM8 per kg.
She is our porter.. Ow! She is Wendi and Mas porter. My porter will be Lina, our guide ^_^.
Lunch provided (In package). But they will packed it in a plastic bag T_T.. I did not bring any big bag, so we have to carry it just like that.. T_T
The starting point.. 'Timpohon'..
This is where our journey starts.. Enjoy some photo taken by me all along the journey..
The small waterfall.. You will be pleased when you reach here during 'home' time.. ;-p
'Untreated water' provided on every stop (Every 1.5km).. There will be toilet too.
Saw few strong human passing by us, carrying some stuff up and down..
I love the rain forest here.. It was cold and hot at the same times.. and sometimes it rain. So don't forget to put all your stuff inside a rubbish plastic bag before putting it in your bag.
'Periuk Kera'.. and it's BIG!!!
Sometimes will meet people struggling to come down.. (Looking at them, thinking.. that's what will happen to me tomorrow.. T_T)
Some porter carrying food stock for restaurant on top..
I just climb from here.. very stiff!!!!
Some beautiful flowers.. ^_^
Finally.. I reach the point where we will be staying few hours before heading to the mountain peak.
I LOVE the scenery!!! On my 1st climbing few years back, I swear will never ever wanted to climb this mount again. But after my 2nd trip this time.. Looking at the scenery on my photos.. I miss the place soo much and weird I have a feelings like wanted to climb again (But oh.. pleaseee.... may be NOT ;-p)
