Climbing the mountain was indeed quite beautiful. You go through several types of forest on your way up and pass some beautiful waterfalls. We chose to do the longer (by 2 km) Mesilau trail to get up the mountain and were rewarded with almost no other climbers and several waterfalls on the trail, but severely punished by the extra 2 km of up and down. Ms. Cupcake definitely did not appreciate my choice of route.
Tomorrow morning at 2am we wake to summit. It’s 6pm and we are headed to bed.
