wonderful Mount Irau

was first introduced to Mount Irau by our Mr 001, who is also our guide for this hike ;) Before this, I dont even know the existance of Mount Irau, hehe. Mr 001 went in Jan and upon his return, he kept telling us how nice it was, so a trip was planned. On a beautiful April morning, a group of 13 young men and women start their journey to Cameron. Mount Irau is famous as mossy forest, and the trek starts near Mount Brinchang. We start our climb at about 8.30am and reach the peak at about 1pm. It was a long climb for us, coz we took our own sweet time to pose to the cameras, and avoid the muddy spots, hehe. I heard the experience ones can climb within two hours ;p Anyway, its not an easy climb, and its muddy all the way. Nevertheless, i enjoyed the climb, the view is magnificent, weather is cool, there's no leaches, mosquitos, etc... and the climb is challenging :) So, here comes the photos...

finally, we reached the top. Actually, there are no nice view from the top. Most importantly is to enjoy the journey up.
