Our weather station at Laban Rata (Base Camp for Mount Kinabalu) at an elevation of 3,311m / 10,862ft was set up yesterday. It's part of a project I've been involved in this last year.
Quite a feat by the on-site team considering everything had to be hand-carried up. Even with porters to do most of the heavy lifting (and as you can see there is quite a bit of stuff) it's still quite a trek up.

Amazing sunset from above the clouds.

Air pressure is 689.2 hPa ... first time I'm seeing a measurement that low. Temperature isn't as cold as I was expecting.


Kudos to the on-site team, who -- in addition to this site -- have been traversing one corner of the country to the other these last few months setting up stations (while I've been "monitoring" remotely from home in my pajamas!).
