Mount Kinabalu Climbing Notes
Helmi Hanif from MALAYSIA writes:
<br/>1. Walking stick (never to underestimate its usefulness, regardless of your fitness level)
<br/>2. Long johns. Very helpful to have them around when the wind started to howl at 30-40km/hr up there followed by gushing rains.
<br/>3. If possible, avoid other accommodations than Laban Rata. We bunked at Waras Hut, but the bad weather made us to be not-so-waras when it got extremely cold (waras = sane).
<br/>4. Consume lots of honey prior to your climb to warmth your body.
<br/>5. If u use a porter's service, be close to them. Waited almost 3 hours in wet clothing for my porter to arrive, since he was also our sweeper.
<br/>6. Get the patch body warmer sold in stores. It helps. buy lots of it. Your friends will thank you for this.
<br/>7. Waterproof pants, jackets, gloves. Important!
