Photos Gallery of Mt Kinabalu Trip 2011

On: Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Here are the photos from our recent Mt Kinabalu trip. Thank god, we were blessed with perfect clear blue skies although it was raining heavily the previous afternoon. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and looking forward to Mt Rinjani, Lombok next. 

Lunch at Round Inn, nearby Poring Hot Spring. Very touristy, place was fully booked and we had to settle for a table outside.
Meow! Poor cat begging for food
Rock Pool. The only cold bath at Poring hot spring
Hot baths. Each can have their own private bath.
Group photo at the spacious living room of our Nepenthes hut at Kinabalu Park. Too bad  we only had a short stay and don't get to fully enjoy the amenities.
Hall where we had our pre-climb briefing
Balsam cafe @Kinabalu Park where we had our dinner, breakfast & pre-packed lunch prior to the climb. The dinner buffet was awesome!
