    English speaking guide Sai shares stories about his village and life as a mountain guide The track is steep rough and uneven so we have one eye on our feet and one on the landscape Although the mountain air is cooler than in Kota Kinabalu it s still hot work Regular shelters along the track are rest stops for a well earned drink and a chance to watch tiny mountain squirrels scavenge for crumbs The pace is slow but altitude sickness starts to kick in about 200m below Laban Rata our stop for the night I ve been at altitude before but starting from sea level has increased the risk of getting ill many people spend a night in the National Park acclimatising We arrive at our hut and find our cosy dorm without heating or hot water but aspirin water warmer clothes and a nap are all I need The buffet and local food is a feast after a big day and tastes better than expected given everything is walked in by porters After a spectacular sunset it s bed and lights out by 7pm Most Read 1 All Aboard the Sea Cabin fever is a term you definitely won t hear aboard the Allure 2 Listopedia Serious Are you serious about where you soak Hotel bath tubs are big 3 Listopedia Bucket Lists Want to suggest a Listopedia Bucket List topic Just let us know on Trending Topics Borneo Day Two The alarm goes off at 2am and I m relieved to have no signs of altitude sickness Breakfast is jam on bread and a cup of tea before we re on the path at 2 45am I can feel the nervous energy rising as climbers wait to begin the day Single file we start to climb step by step through the last of the vegetation our head torches forming an iridescent snake up the mountain I walk slowly keeping my heart rate low to avoid altitude sickness Just after the final checkpoint we reach bare granite It s still pitch black and as I edge myself along a granite rock face holding a thick white rope for stability I can t tell how steep the drop is The rope marks the summit track and is a handy way to haul yourself up when the incline is too steep A soft light begins to fill the sky I don t look at the time it doesn t help to know how long until sunrise Just before 6am we arrive at the top of the world it s a huge thrill to have made it Below the huge sweeping granite mountain now has a trail of people climbing The sun peeks between the clouds to light up their path and the view is breathtaking We look out at the world below in wonder This high up we re shivering in the thin air and after 20 minutes it s time to descend Going down is much faster with daylight
