10th-12th November 2016

The FPMPAM went at it again, as they paid a visit to the rural village of Pensiangan, providing free healthcare to hundreds of villagers. A job well done.

Just as we prepare to leave Asiana Hotel ( KK ) for Pensiangan.


To Keningau / Pensiangan via the Tambunan Road across the Crocker Range


Across rolling hills and winding roads, beautiful day


A pit stop, for relaxation, natures call and also car tyres to cool down


Beautiful scenery up the Crocker Range


Lunch break at Sook


Once off the Sapulut , the journey gets tough as we engage logging roads


This is a transit stop. We have to change from our 11 seater van, to these tougher 4x4, signaling that the way ahead is no joke. Getting ready for real off road conditions, as we will soon find out.


Here we go. Narrow mud tracks, winding up hill and downhill. Our driver was very skillful just to stay on the road


A brief stop to cool down the engine. The roads were tough


Across shallow river


After about 7 hours on the road, our first view of Pensiangan


Mahkamah Mukim Pensiangan


The School in Pensiangan - a lovely view. Pensiangan is in two parts separated by the Sg Salut


Cardboard advertisement for the Camp tomorrow. This notice was placed outside a sundry shop belonging to one Mr Goh. The Chinese were here since the colonial days History records that they started as traders in good quality natural Birds Nest which they harvest from the caves around Pensiangan


We drove to the north part of the town and our sleeping quarters were at the south part, so we have to use this single span suspension bridge to cross back and forth. Let me assure you, it is a nervy experience.


Water buffalos bathe in the rivers.


Strolling down the river via boat ride.


Our living quarters. Females in rooms and males in the hall, all upstairs.


Our bathroom and toilet. Water was cold and lighting by torchlight


A night scene from across the river. I am not at the south part, looking across the river. Time to sleep. A long day tomorrow.
