Travel photo of the day
Low´s Peak (4095.2 m), Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia
- taliaday, CNN iReport producer
February 2011 I did the 3 day trek to the summit Low´s Peak (4095.2 m) of Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia. We started at 7 am and when we arrived at the guest house which was located at ca. 3000 m, it was dark. We had been trekking 10 hours. After midnight, at 2 am we made our way to the summit. We had to start that early in order to be in time for the sunrise which was the main reason for the whole effort. It was cold, tricky and dark. But we made it and yes, watching the sun rise from the peak - it was one of the best moments of my life.
