Bkt Lembing Hike: Part 1

Too many images to fit into 1 article, so I'll put it in parts

We hiked up Bkt Lembing yesterday (1st Nov) to relieve pre-exam tension & to spend time with buddies!

The gang: Rowie, Kai, Kelvin, Too, Ash, Al, Firdaus, David, Chi Hui (basically OG members)

Departing from UMP
We left at 5am; the guards had placed barriers at the exit & were plummoxed as to why the 9 of us wanted to hike up Bkt Lembing at such an hour hehe...The drive there took nearly 40 min instead of the predicted 15 min hehe...The route was pretty easy but one has to be careful not to drive too quickly as there are some fairly tricky curves. We arrived at a sleepy village, & parked our vehicles at the bottom of the hill. 

On the way up
We reached the bottom of the hill at approx. 5.45am & began the hike up. It was pitch dark & no one thought to bring a torchlight, so we made do with lights from our handphones haha :p Then the sun came up so our plans to watch the sunrise at the top were dashed. Rushing up wasn't an option; it was pretty steep & I clearly have no stamina


Beautiful scenery

2 things about Lembing...

2) Nice to see nature's call once in awhile '(^^,)"
