Hi all,

I am exploring a group photo shooting at Kota Kinabalu during end May time frame. Particularly, we should go up to Mt. Kinabalu, the highest mountain in South East Asia.

Venue: Kota Kinabalu (Sabah, East Malaysia)
Date: between 28th May 2005 to 31st May 2005
Budget: {Need to check with tour agency}
Minimum to go: 6 to 8 pax

Itinerary (day 2 and 3 extract from a web site, to be confirmed with the tour agent, but should not be too much of a difference):

Day 01 (27th May 2005)
=================
Depart Singapore to Johor Bahru, take Air Asia to Kota Kinabalu, check in hotel. R&R for the rest of the day(Maybe city photo shooting?)

Day 02 (28th May 2005)
=================
Early morning depart for Mount Kinabalu. Start trekking up the mountain trail with a mountain guide. Pass through different vegetation zones and look out for flora and fauna. Overnight at Laban Rata Resthouse (3,353 meters)

Day 03 (29th May 2005)
=================
Early morning, start the climb for the summit. If weather permits, enjoy the breathtaking view of Sabah at the top with the dawn breaking over the horizon. Descend to the Park headquarters and transfer back to Kota Kinabalu

Day 04 (30th May 2005)
=================
Join the harvest festival (city name, time of departure to be confirmed by the tour agency), if times permit, will fly off from Kota Kinabalu back to JB, and transfer back to Singapore, else, R&R for the rest of the day, and depart from K.K. back to Singapore via JB.

Not sionz la. The Singapore Handicap Group has done it already! So can you. It's just trekking up to the top. Only got to stay overnight at base camp; wake up very early in the morning to trek.

Do you know Mt. Kinabalu is higher than Mt. Fuji?

Actually the trip can cater to those not climbing too. The Park HQ is at the Mt K National Park. Register at the HQ and proceed to Laban Rata Resthouse for the night. Those not climbing may stay for the night at the Park's chalet. A night at the Park, wow! 15~18 degree C. Sunrise Sunset very beautiful...

There are activities at the Park like trekking/mountain trails and lots of landscape, flowers and lots of insects for shoot. The beetles are very very huge hor! Can be found every where on the ground.

Travel agency got to book the chalet/Resthouse(climb) early, though. Coz it's school holidays in end May. Usually pack!

Update:

Just called up the travel agency in Sabah, and they told me the accommodation in Mt. Kinabalu is fully booked till end May.

They are now trying to see if we can go up the mountain on 1st and 2nd June.

I will let all of you know the outcome as soon as I get a reply from them.
