1. Pinnacles of Borneo
Everyone seems to know about climbing Mount Kinabalu in Malaysian Borneo, but one of our favorite adventures of our life was trekking to the Pinnacles of Gunung Mulu in Sarawak. A stone forest of white and grey limestone, jutting 45 metres out of the earth in razor sharp formations.
It is an adventure just getting there. It takes two days to trek to the pinnacles. After flying into Gunung Mulu National Park on a twin-engine airplane, you take a 2-hour boat ride to the start of an 8km trail. After your long trek through the jungle it is a beautiful overnight at Camp 5 where you prepare for your summit push the following morning. The steep climb is exhilarating and to finally reach the summit and witness this rare and awe-inspiring site is an incredible life experience.

I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
