Ranau: "Kolam menjadi ais, embun yang menitis juga terus membeku hingga kelihatan seperti salji," kata penunjuk arah atau dikenali sebagai 'Malim Gunung Kinabalu', Nais Momin, 45.

Menceritakan keadaan sejuk luar biasa di puncak Gunung Kinabalu, Nais berkata, beliau menyedari keadaan itu ketika membawa pendaki ke puncak gunung pada 15 Januari lalu.

"Ini kali pertama saya lihat keadaan seperti itu sepanjang enam tahun menjadi malim di puncak tertinggi Asia Tenggara. Laluan bertangga di kawasan puncak turut diseliputi ais. Laluan pendaki menjadi licin.

"Cuaca ketika itu redup, bergerimis dan sejuknya menusuk ke tulang. Air menjadi ais dengan ketebalan antara setengah hingga lebih satu sentimeter.

Putih seperti kapas

"Air yang menitis kelihatan putih seperti salji, tetapi apabila jatuh atas batu ia hilang. Ada pendaki menyangka ia salji, tetapi saya berpendapat sebaliknya kerana salji bila jatuh ke bumi, ia kelihatan putih seperti kapas," katanya ditemui di sini, semalam.
Pengerusi Persatuan Malim Gunung Kinabalu, Suhaji Sumail, berkata pembekuan air kolam di puncak gunung jarang terjadi dan kali terakhir pernah diceritakan, berlaku lebih 30 tahun lalu.

"Ais biasa ditemui di puncak gunung, terutama pada musim kemarau, tetapi nipis dan cair apabila disentuh. Kali ini, ais ditemui tebal dan berlaku pada musim hujan.

"Saya percaya ia disebabkan cuaca sejuk yang dibawa angin kencang di kawasan puncak gunung," katanya.

Kakitangan Taman-Taman Sabah, Jenny Jane, 29, berkata catatan suhu dicatat di puncak Gunung Kinabalu, jatuh hingga negatif dua darjah Celsius sejak pertengahan bulan ini, berbanding empat hingga lapan darjah Celsius sebelum ini.

Suhu bawah paras beku

Katanya, pemantauan pihaknya mendapati suhu di bawah paras beku dicatat dua atau tiga hari sebelum meningkat kepada sifar hingga tiga darjah Celsius, sejak seminggu lalu.

"Memang kali ini lebih sejuk disebabkan hujan berpanjangan seminggu lalu sehingga ada jadual pendakian ke puncak dibatalkan," katanya.

Sementara itu, Pengarah Jabatan Meteorologi Sabah, Abdul Malek Tussin, berkata ke-adaan berais di puncak Gunung Kinabalu akibat penurunan suhu sehingga mencapai paras beku adalah perkara biasa.

"Dakwaan salji tidak logik kerana Gunung Kinabalu tidak terletak di kawasan yang biasa berlaku salji," katanya.

Visit Malaysia: Kota Kinabalu, Sabah [Part 14] – Desa Dairy Farm <b>...</b>

A lot of people long to visit New Zealand. Considered as one of the beautiful countries to visit, it is famous for its natural landscape and the dairy farm. Ever since I was a kid, I love to watch advertisement of formula milk such as Fernleaf because the view shown in the advertisement was splendid and they always quoted "From New Zealand". But if you are under budget to fly to New Zealand, the Desa Dairy Farm in Kundasang, Sabah is a great alternative.

On our 3rd day touring Sabah, after we visited Tamu Ranau, we continued our journey to Kundasang. The signage heading to this farm is almost non existence and we were lost finding our way to the farm. Thanks to one local uncle, he told us that we had already missed the junction to the farm and had to make a U-turn before finding our ways.

The entrance to the Desa Dairy Farm.

The drive to the farm was a tough one. The climb was very steep whilst the road was not tarred. We were afraid that the car's engine might encounter problem. Gladly, we arrived safely at the farm and the view that welcomed us was spectacular. Exactly like the formula milk's advertisement!

Green everywhere!

The place is very green with layers of mountains and clouds hovering above us. We went out from the car and the smell of cows' poops triggered our smell sense. Coupled that with the strong wind, it felt like the cows' poops were all over our noses! But because of the chilling wind and greenery view, they compensated the not-so-nice smell.

Cows everywhere!

Desa Dairy Farm is famous for its views and fresh milk. Visitors to the farm can go to the factory area and purchase a fresh cow's milk. They are also the main manufacturer for fresh milk in Sabah.

Black and White cows.

Nevertheless, we did not buy any milk there as milk is just not our cup of tea. Lol. Apart from that, we were more interested in the nice views offered by the farm. So nice that even a couple had their wedding photography here despite the abundance of cows' poops. I was excited too as it was my first time seeing a black and white cow.

It was an amazing experience visiting the dairy farm. Where else can we have the chance to see a cow eating the grass close up without being chased? And the sound made by the cows whilst chewing the grass, it all made up to the experience. :)

A place to remember.

Although there is an entrance fee of RM 4 per person, personally I think it is worth it. For the view, the calm feelings, the clouds, the mountains, the smell :D!

Akmal and me, enjoying the moment.

Definitely, it is a place to remember.

To go to Desa Dairy Farm, Kundasang, upon reaching the Kundasang town, enter the town and drive passed the Kundasang War Memorial, going straight ahead. Ensure that the fuel and brake fluid is enough as it will be a steep climb. After passing a housing area, have a look out on your left as the dairy farm is located on a hillside on the left side of the road. The fee to enter the Farm is RM 4 as of July 2013.
