All I knew was Low’s Peak as the final destiny of Kinabalu climb. How wrong I was. Low’s Peak is situated in the Western Plateau of Kinabalu’s summit. There is also Eastern Plateau.
But what I like to do, if God permits, is to stay at Gurkha’s Hut further west to Low’s Peak. I know that this is possible but is considered as ‘expedition’ rather than usual trekking, thus require special permit. Further googling brought me to Mersilau Homestay’s blog which offer more than RM2K for 4D/3N Western Plateau-Gurkha’s Hut package. So it is possible but pricey!
Few Gunung Online members already successfully went up & stayed at Gurkha’s Hut. How I wish I could do…and able to do the same.
This has become my dream for now….. Eastern plateau seems like too challenging for me.
