Two hours away from Kota Kinabalu airport is Keningau district. It is the fifth-largest town and one of the oldest in Sabah, Malaysia.map sabah borneo malaysia

The road going up reminded me of my mountains back home in the northern Philippines.keningau paragliding

The view from up the mountain was breathtaking!keningau paragliding

This was our home for the next 3 days. We had water from the rain and light from the fireflies. Our lullaby at night was the blowing wind and the sounds of mating insects. Our wake-up call were chirping birds and the warm sunshine.keningau paragliding keningau paraglidingkeningau paraglidingkeningau paragliding

Azizan and Jaidi took care of us so well. They anticipated our camping needs and gave more than what we asked for.

We had a pick-up service every time we flew down the mountain. Jaidi was our all-in-one driver, guide and paraboy. He rescued me and my wing from a tree (more about that in my next post).
