Mount Kinabalu

Back Up Next

Mount Kinabalu is a 4095 m high mountain on the island of Borneo in East Malaysia. It is the fourth highest mountain in Southeast Asia. Fredrik and Morten climbed the mountain together with the Rognli family on 1 September 2008. Inger stayed back at the Sutera Harbour Resort in Kota Kinabalu where we prepared for the climb 30-31 August. More pictures can be found in our Picasa Webalbum by clicking here.
