The first day we walked up to Laban Rata where the accommodation was located. I say accommodation, it was a tin hut and wasn't very windproof. The walk up was mainly up hill and on steps or rocky sections through rain forest. It was a 6km trip and took 5-6 hours. The organisation was really good for the trek from sorting out accommodation to getting guides. The rest of the afternoon the clouds came and went quickly with some rain. About an hour before sunset though the clouds cleared and great views were to be had.
The next morning was an early start, up at 2am and setting off at 2.45am for the summit
The walk down took about 5 hours and needed steady feet as the ground was wet. Despite
not been a long or strenuous trek my legs were quite stiff the next day and when I walked down a small flight of steps my knee seized up, but it seems OK today.
It was an enjoyable little trek and quite cheap.
