As I mentioned yesterday evening, today we are going to visit the “Seven Wells” (for seven natural pools) and something we did not plan: the “Seven Wells peak”. I must say, signs panel in this area are pretty bad. They confuse more than they inform us. And to make sure we are confuse, people told us wrong timing (about the walk) and nothing is in english. Fortunately, with all these things not in our favour, we did not get lost. Are we good? No, we simply kept going straight up until we ended to the top of Langkawi island and got nearly a 360 degrees view for free!
Today we are going to visit the Niah cave. We had to come back first to the “long distance” bus station. Now we know there is a public bus going there. The trip to Niah junction (where the bus stops on the highway) cost 15 Ringgit. Then we had lunch had to catch a local taxi (15 Ringgit each for one way). Finally there is a 4km walk in Niah national park to get to the cave.
This is the highest summit I’ve never been onto :-) We are the first two guys to get there with a Spanish guy. We did it without any torch which was even better (actually, my battery run out after 30 minutes this morning). Without any light we could enjoy the stars and feel all the atmosphere. The moon’s brightness was enough to see where we were going. We left this morning around 3am and arrived 2 hours and 15 minutes later. We now can see all the other guys walking slowly down there. The temperature up there is, I guess, between 0 and 5 degrees and it’s slightly windy. I won’t be able to stay too long up there because I will get cold if I don’t move.
This is the first thing we saw this morning when we woke up. Mount Kinabalu! The weather is fantastic today. We only expect that we can climb this mountain! If I’m not mistaken, we are going at the further peak on the left hand side. Its name is Low’s peak. Let’s start the day!
Today we came down from the bush campsite where we had a good quite night and this afternoon I’m gonna visit the Botanical Garden Market. It’s the end of Cairns Festival and like every year this Market is open to any body who want to have a good time.
Hello! today we were cycling around Smithfield with Martin and Marco pretending going to the mountain bike track but finally the plan changed. There is a nice track in a george and were are gonna camp at the top something like that. Martin and Marco have been there already but not me yet :-). A new visit, a new adventure, let’s go!
Today (I know it’s not really in live but don’t think about it alright? thanks :-) So today, we are going to live a great adventure in Barron Gorge. When I was in Kuranda 5 or 6 weeks ago, I’ve been to the lookout to see the Barron falls. Now we are gonna be inside with Martin and Marco. here we go!
