First Hiking At Bukit Tabur East

During my first hiking trip at Bukit Tabur, I didn’t know there are two (or probably more) hiking trails. Indeed, both routes are leading to different quartz ridge, with different scene and physical challenge.

After trying the Bukit Tabur East hiking trail, I feel that the east trail is tougher and is really require good stamina to conquer. And I guess that most of the fatal accidentals in the past should be happened in the east trail.

Here are some of the photographs took on 24th of Jan 2010, with the Nokia 5800 3.2 megapixel digital camera. While some of these images were geotagged on the field by the Nokia 5800 GPS tagging feature (and thus with altitude data recorded by its GPSr), others were geotagged off the field with the help of Sony GPS-CS1 and Sony Image Tracker software.
