Come June 27 - July 1, I am leading a group of 24 climbers to Immerse ourselves in Mulu. its my first trip here and really excited about it as i wanted to go for the last few years as my focus was on Mt Kinabalu..

With the dense vegetation and to live an isolated rainforest without all the bustling sound of cars, breathing carbon monoxide...and this is what Chey favorite line ' Life is Beautiful'
This trip will include visiting 4 Caves ie. Deer, Lang, Clearwater and Wind... after visiting these caves it will the climbing to the Pinnacles..tho' its only 2.4km from Camp 5 but most of the time its vertical climb.

Will do a details studies and organise another trip there to those who are unable to join me..
Iternary :
June 27 - Leaving KL to Miri - Mulu.
At Mulu Park , will visit 2 caves ie Deer and Lang .
Will also relax at the Bat Observatory and wait for the Bat Exodus

June 28 - Take a boat ride to Camp 5, where during the journey ,
will past the everday life of the Mulu Community and visit the biggest caves in the world.
The boat ride will stop at Kuala Litut, from here will start the 3 hours easy walk to Camp 5

June 29 - 7am will start the journey of 2.4km long to the Pinnacles as its rises up to 1,200meters.

June 30 - Will retrace back our steps to Mulu Park

July 1 - Home Sweet Home

Those who not be climbing the Pinnacles but can do optional activities at Camp 5 like a walk to the Kerangas Forest, or the Melinau Gorge but more challenging is the Head Hunters Trail.

Penang Bridge, a 13.5 kilometre architectural wonder is the site of the Penang Bridge International Marathon 2006. It connects mainland Peninsula Malaysia to Penang island, well known to visitors from all over the world as the 'Pearl of the Orient.' This spectacular bridge, the longest in Asia and reputedly the third longest in the world begins at the mainland Seberang Jaya Toll centre, then spans over to a small island midway and reaches the island near University Sains Malaysia (USM) at Minden. - Source from LLM

After a week hiking Gng Irau

Last sat. 10 of my regular 'kaki's trek gunung nuang.. but its up to the water fall, 'cos the next day we are running for 20km/30km in view of the Penang Bridge Marathon.
Eric, Wei Kong, SIok Bee and Julie decided to cycle 80km from the park office to Kuala Klawang (Jelebu District)..
Its a leisure climb took us abt 1hr 30mins to reach the waterfall and Angie Yip.. been the youngest lady in our group she was the chef ,... we manage to locate the camp site where i usually camp overnite.
Since its school holidays, the Park was crowded .. come in August, will climb Gng Nuang again this time to the peak... Why August, 'cos its the fruits seasons and plenty of durians, rambutans and mangosteens.....
