Sandakan to Kota Kinabalu National Park

Today we left the heat, the bright blue sky, the sea and our luxurious hotel room, and caught a long distance bus to KK National Park.
It took about six hours to cover 230k and we are now over 1,500 metres above sea level. We had to walk the final 2k to our guesthouse and we could see a cloud ahead of us on the road. Suddenly we were in the middle of it and could only see a few metres in any direction.  We had to follow a very narrow, steep and slippery single track road into the jungle as our guesthouse is in the middle of nowhere.
We are planning on getting back to nature for a couple of days and seem to be achieving it. We only have hot water between five and eight pm, our room is made of wood - it has a garden shed look about it - and there is no telly.
The temperature has dipped from the mid 30's to about 15 degrees so it is a bit of a shock to the system.
