Mt Kinabalu Itinerary
Four familiar faces decided to embark on a journey that they will never forget...EVER !!
As said by a beloved young man from the trip " It brings the best and worst out of you"
The guide that was with us was the best that we could ever asked for. He was very supportive and NEVER EVER ONCE given up on us. He made sure that all of us made it up to the peak. I wouldn't mind going back just to say "Hi" to this one tough cookie here.
If you would like to get hold of this amazing guy, trust me - this guy will make sure you reach the peak. You may contact him ; Azmie : +6012 8420 668 / Tuji : +6013 8966 701.
