Our base camp, stayed here for 2 night. Heavy downpour cause the water to flow forwards my tent, and wet. Can't really sleep at night, one my tent is wet, second very cold. The temp is around 20 degree, and we can see vapor sometime when we talk.

The whole journey took us 3 days.
Day 1, hike from village to basecamp, 4 hour. We build camp there, and start to cook for dinner.
Day 2, hike from base camp to Kanyi summit, 2 3/4 hour to reach the summit, temp around 19 degree.1574 m above sea level. Stayed there for 1/2 hour and decent again.
Day 3, Pack our stuff, and hike about 3 1/2 hours to reach the village, and go back Kuching.

After the hike
==================
Mount Kanyi is the tallest mount in western Sarawak, above 1500m elevation. And the 2nd highest will be the Berumput Mount (which we plant to go on our next trip).
During my decent, I'm carrying the same amount of stuff, my clothes, and tent. But it add in more weight because all the stuff are wet. So due to the heavy backpack, my left knee are extremely painful, and I hope its not a permanent injury, cause still a lot of mount waiting for me to concur. 
Over I had fun in this trip, a lot of leach bites, nearly bitten by poison snake, wet and chilling weather, vapor from pee and breath, what a jorney. My dear reader, please stay tune for my next adventure, until then see you in my next post. 

Cheers :)

This is the starting point to climb/walk up the mount. This is the only place in town where people can enjoy nature and work out in the same time.

And just 15 mins later, I've reached the summit =.= and I was expecting that it will last me an hour or so, but 15 mins is just too short.

When decent, i'm using another side of the mount. It was nicely tared, easy for the towel maintenance people to drive up.

141106 Sabah Fish Market with Wilson Chin

20141106_080104
I visited the same place back in year 2011, you can read the post by click here. I don't like seafood, hence i seldom go to the fish market. Cause its connected to the sea, so the view are beautiful

I am very worry when I saw some kids on the fishing boat with no adult with them, but for them the sea is like their play ground. They grew up there, and its a normal thing for them.
