Save our nature
Hi, my name is Ian Vong. I am a avid hiker who enjoys the challenging and breathtaking trips in Borneo.
Mount Santubong is one of my favourite places to hike. From August 2017 until July 2018, I trekked and climbed a total of 45 times in order to explore the entire mountain range. The famous Mount Santubong summit 1( 810m) is the prime attractions for both locals and foreign trekkers. If you were to view from the side of the mountain there are 7 summits, with elevation ranging 450m to 850m above sea level.
My up coming mission is to climb summit 1 and trek along the mountain range, all the way to the end of the peninsula where Tanjung Sipang Lighthouse is located, and then back to Camp Permai via West Coast. This challenge has never been done before, it will take 36 to 40 hours to complete. The estimated length of the trail is 40 km. I will be leading a small group comprising of 5 to 10 experienced hikers, we will hike as a team to complete the challenge.
I would also like to promote the importance of hiking etiquette :
- LEAVE NO TRACE BUT FOOTPRINTS
- TAKE NOTHING BUT PICTURES
- KILL NOTHING BUT TIME
I love nature and I would like to do something meaningful by raising fund for the environment. If everyone were to participate and contribute a little, we can all save our environment.
Save mother nature. Heal the world before it's too late.
