If you can make it to the peak, you can see the beautiful sunrise.
But no suitable place or rather flat area for you to place your tripod.
You need 2 days 1 night to reach the peak. Good enough you still
have energy to take photos. Hands are very shaky at that time due
to tiredness and cold. Don't forget to get a waterproof gloves.
You can actually pay the guide/porter to carry it up for you. However, if this is your first time up, and you've never experienced thinner than sea-level air, i suggest you leave the pod at home. You may not be able to think too clearly with the thin air.
BUT if you're the hardcore-tripod, large format camera, big-big enlargements type ... then i suggest you use the porter to carry everything up for you. (i think he'll even carry you up if you're willing to pay.)
Don't know if you are already in Mt KK...anyway, as mentioned by others, there would be no space for you to mount your tripod at the summit becos it's gonna be over-crowded with ppl. Finding a place to stand also got problem.
Unless, you have booked 2 nights at the Laban Rata guesthouse, which means you will not be in a hurry to get down after reaching the summit. Most groups only book 1 night, so immediately after sunrise and all the photo-taking, they will rush down.
After everybody is gone, normally at abt 8+......you will have the entire summit to yourself and your group. Then, it makes more sense to bring along a tripod becos now you could utilise it if you want.
