KK holidays 5

It was quite cold in Kundasang due to the rain in the evening.

This morning, we got up early to enjoy the full view of Mt. Kinabalu.

After breakfast, we visited the Australian War Memoral nearby. It was set up to remember the infamous Sandakan death march in 1945. More than 2000 Australian POWs were ordered by the Japanese occupiers to march from Sandakan to Ranau, a journey of more than 220 km. Due to shortage of food, only six were survived.

At noon, we left Kundasang for Sandakan, which was about 230 Km away.

"I was there..!" Jonathan reached the summit 3 weeks ago.
