GAS D3. Climbing to Laban Rata from Mersilau Gate

hmmm another delay.. just for the sake of updating.
& staggering because malasing & saje nak bagi suspend.. syok sendiri hehehe

The map
The link to everytrail

Nice breakfast at MErsilau Cafe. Actually we were too early to the place.heheh saja bikin panaih.
 After sessi bergambo & stuff... maka sessi taklimat & stretchin & byk lagi

 Hmm the climb was fun. the pace was totally off. about 3 group. front ,middle & damn slow siput.
The front part also disintegrated at the last part. i bet the last kilometer was a killer.. Bila nak habih ni.??
The view was nice, A lot better than Timpohon.. believe me.. We had waterfall, titi gantung... top of the hill view & almost like on Mars ( with orange background)

 I was tryin my limit by carrying my own stuff... it was ok & but off balance a bit when going down. ( Mersilau has up & down texture. not like Timpohon. Total ascend....

 Finally we all ( the front runners ) reached the junction.hmmm that was it..the real torture began.
Those porter are not human. i saw female bertudung porter also.. carrying items which weighted >30kg. Running porter going down....
Met & chatted with locals ( Porters & visitors)
Some slow porters admitted that they use to climb 8 times in a month. (utk part time) Gallen. hmmm but locals were friendly.
The front runners:
Jett Linn ,Dong,Haji Adi,Wan,Dayani,Fendi

Middle earth:
Sumi,Rapper ( Aida),Tengkurak,Abe Din Merton & bla bla.

Slow siput:
Hai NIk... & Jo. Thanks to BroZAm & BroMan for supporting.
The earlierst was around 1430 & the last reached by 1800. Alhamdullilah. Pucat muko si Nik masa sampei...

It was fun. Very cold. & many people mengeluarkan kata kata lucah when were forced to climb to Gunting Lagadan  Dormitory after reaching Laban rata. Only extra 150m. but damn.. it took us almost 20 min.

1. Shorter route, choose Timpohon .
2. Great view & really great view choose Mersilau
3.Mersilau Nature resort offers nice food & cozy dormitory
4.Use porters if you can.It is really punishing to carry your own item. but up to you..
5.Packed lunch provided by the resort is the best lunch you can ever had up there ( during climbing). Bring some your own . Actually it is not enough for some people.
6.Camera is a must. very nice view
7.Train for the climbing.Not just stamina, Mental plays the major & vital role.
