The Day Before Climbing Mount Trus Madi

The first day of our trip to conquer Mount Trus Madi;
We start our journey from KK by bus around 2.30 pm go to Tambunan Town. This journey taking time around 1 hour and a half or two hours depend how speed your bus. We arrive at Tambunan around 4.15 p.m, So before we continue our journey to Kg Kaigaran where we will sleep there for one night, we buy foods and adidas kampung first as a preparation.

Tambunan founder Gombunan and Tamadon

At Tambunan evening market you find this "vutot" (moth that found at rumbia (sago palm) tree)

From Tambunan go to Kg Kaigaran it take around one hour drive because the road still gravel.
So we stay at "Balai Raya" Kg Kaigaran before climbing Mount Trus Madi on the next day.

At the night at Kg Kaigaran we have an opportunity to join the villager to catch fish and this activity was very fun, interesting and cold also make you hunger (so before join them please eat your dinner please)

Here the brave people who join to catch the fish
