Is the Pinnacles' hike in Mulu National Park too hard for a not so athletic teenager? Leech info too.
Hi, I am taking 11 teenagers traveling in Malaysia Borneo. A couple of them are concerned about the Pinnacles' hike being too much with the ladders etc. Any advice? Also, any recommendations for dealing with the leeches before, during and after?
Thanks for any helpful info.
Yes, the Pinnacles is pretty full on but well worth it. Depends on the ages of the teenagers ... With a group of 11, yes, be careful. Hire some guides to assist your group.
Leeches. Well, yes, lots and lots and lots. After the first few hundred you sort of gets used to them. Just pull them off and chop them up with a knife, like the locals do.
