PETALING JAYA: Sixty years ago, G. Nanalingam led a small team from the Royal Military College (RMC) to the summit of Mount Kolubu, the second highest mountain on Peninsular Malaysia.

They were among the first to accomplish this feat, cutting through a treacherous mountain that took three days to climb and three days to descend.

Yusuf Hashim, one of the climbers, said: “If you ever come to the Gunung Korbu trig point, look for a small brass plate with our name written on it nailed to the trunk of one of the many dwarf oak trees around the summit. please.” .
