Sipitang: Mount Lumaku.

as i mentioned in my previous post, about my trip to Sipitang wild. so these are pictures taken during my unsuccessful Mount Lumaku hiking. Mount Lumaku stands proudly 1900 meters a.s.l. but i only managed to reach 1700 meters a.s.l altitude. this was my first time hiking.. so not bad for first timer like me, i guess. Mount of Lumaku is not very popular among adventure seeker. thanks to my supervisor, Dr. Monica, members of trip (Pak Zainal, Dunstan, Melda, Liew) and our guide, Salapan for taking care of me on that trip.

on the way up to Mount Lumaku. this is old logging road at Mendulong. sadly the area apparently disturbed by massive logging activity. ironically without this road, Mount Lumaku is hard to be accessed.
