BHR Padawan Challenge Part 1

UPDATED: Read about Chai Fung's adventure here!
The first time I heard about this event is through Sarawak Bloggers portal which really interest me because I never been to Borneo Height.

So hmm, I thought this is my chance to go up to enjoy the nature.

Yesterday morning, I woke up super early like 5a.m. to prepare and 5.40a.m. my trekking partner Chai Fung came to fetch me.

So we're off to Kota Padawan and had breakfast before proceeding to the Borneo Highland foothill.

 So this is where we got off from the taxi, nice scenery right?
Our flag off/starting point!
I shall bore you with all the photos taken by my phone now =)
Anyway, at the starting point less than halfway I was struggling to go on in the trek. It was so tiring in my mind and body that I wanted to give up! My partner kept on cheering me on and said: 'Sherrie, don't give up!'. I rested quite a number of times in the jungle. My white clothes are all muddy colour now.
I'm all white in the beginning
During the trek, it's leaping through rivers, climbing through tree trunks, go through a mountain fall, climbing upwards like wall climbing through the mud and walk upwards and downwards. Halfway, there's even rain to help make the tracks even muddier and dirty.
The most rewarding experience for me, is at the Kalimantan Viewpoint! So peaceful and serene view.
If only the time allows, I would have finish the whole track and might even stand a chance to be in the top 15. I'm just too slow to regain my strength! Almost fainted due to fatigue during my mental and physical torture.  

After this we took another route to surrender ourselves off the race.
