    Kinabalu Travel Expedition Team 2007 (29 Apr 07 – 1 May 07)

    Kinabalu Travel Expedition Team 2008 (29 Apr 08 – 1 May 08)

    Erk….both team went up on a different year but with the same date ya :p (both enjoying the same pain & gain during the climbing journey).

    Wait…looks like I celebrate 2007 & 2008 Labour Day on top of Borneo? Cool

    The so called expedition last for 3 days 2 night and you might be curious which route that we used to climb Mt. Kinabalu.

    It was Mesilau trail, why? Because you can have a better scenery view if you climbing using Mesilau trail rather than Timpohon trail. Although Mesilau trail was 2km longer compares to Timpohon trail…trust me…the scenery view really worth for your eyes.

    Let me share with you guys on how the itinerary sounds
