Yes, I went for my second climb to Aki Nabalu. This time, with my loved ones plus two newly-become friends.
Comparing the latest climb to my first, I enjoyed the latter one. Why is that? First and foremost, the group that I'm with - my dad, brother, cousin and of course I had my so called personal guide Incik Tunang.
Secondly, the weather. Thank you Lord! The weather was fine. I thought that it was going to rain but it's not.
Thirdly, in terms of fitness. I trained regularly compared to the first climb and yup, it helps. I'm quite proud of myself that I was able to ascend and descend within the expected time. As in, I managed to reach on time for the buffet dinner (my motivation. Haha!) and descend before 4pm the next day.
|Did I reach the summit this time? Haha|
Another adventure list checked for this year. For now, I've achieved my goal - to experience the summit trail of pre and post earthquake. I felt like, twice is enough but who knows in the near future, aite?
