Mount Singai Night Hike and Hammock Camping

The Singai Mount is about 518m Above Sea Level. Singai Mountain is the holy sacred mountain for the Bidayuh people (one of the local ethnic group in Sarawak). They build a church on this mountain, devotes will come here and do their regular praying.

It was a raining night that day, it was the first time my team and I did the night climb, my GPS record is we start climb at 09.26pm and reach the summit at 11.15pm (Total distance of 2.01km, 1.35hours to reach summit)
We setup our hammock, and rest at about 2am after our late meal. The next day we woke up at 6.30am, and we are very fortunate that we can witness the sea clouds on the base of the mountain.

Climbed Mount Singai for so many time, but this is the first time we witness this wonder of nature.
