being at 2000m ASL , it was very cold , around 15-18'C
making us sleepless throughout the night.
while Mount Irau is located at altitude 2100m ASL.
although there is no much difference in elevation between
the starting point and Mount Irau peak , trekkers need to trek
for about 2.35km @ average 3 hours to reach the peak ,
passing through beautiful mossy forest with thick muddy ground.
some people advises that trekkers should bring old trekking shoes ,
as the mud will make the shoes very dirty.
but from my experience , it's so much better to wear good quality
and not too old shoes , considering that the trails are quite tough
with occasionally mud with 1ft deep.
better off with new shoes rather than wearing old shoes but
risking in the soles falling off while trekking.

a little bit more difficult than my previous
Mount Santubong trip ( click here )
but we were too bus taking photos along the journey
to mother Irau peak
Mount Irau peak.
after 1 hour 15 minutes trekking from Mini Irau peak.
a quick unplanned trip to Mossy Forest Mount Irau with
Sunny and Zaim Rosli.
Me and Sunny always wanted to go to this place since
2 , 3 years back , but too occupied with other things
and never had a chance until now.
