Mount Tambuyukon article by K Ravi Mandalam

Dr. Ravi is one of my fellow colleague, whom I know since the early days I was in Kota Kinabalu. He’s a radiologist (and a good one), working in one of the private hospital in Kota Kinabalu. In April 2002, he invited me to be in his medical team, which looked after 23 Special Olympic athletes to summit Mount Kinabalu. That was only my second time climbing, and I was honored to be one of the doctors in his team.

He is also a Rotary Club member, and I have also joined few of their community services with him to some of the interior part of Sabah. I just joined in as a volunteer, (and most of the time as a medical provider) as he invited me to be part of the team.

Mount Kinabalu from Tambuyukon

In October 2006, Dr Ravi managed to trek Mount Tambuyukon, the 3rd highest mountain in Sabah and Malaysia (for the 6th time) with another 2 of his colleagues, George and Liaw. He managed to shoot a number of nice and colorful photos of Mount Kinabalu, from a different angle, and some of the endemic flora of Kinabalu on the way.

I have dedicated a special 3 web page article on his journey. It also includes more than 30 colorful photos of his quest. Check it out here.
