A strong-willed journalist did not heed a Murut shaman’s advice to conquer the unexplored, saucer-like forested mountain summit that sits in the middle of a 390 km remote nature paradise, better known as Maliau Basin (a.k.a. Sabah’s Lost World), in the Eastern Sabah State of Malaysia Borneo.

Before embarking on his quest, the journalist encountered unusual happenings and experienced strange events in very unlikely situations. He suspected these weird incidents had something to do with his plan to conquer the summit.

He was also suspicious that the Tingkaayoh had kept many secrets away from him and did not like the idea that someone like him was about to reveal it to the world.

Emin Madi, a Dusun, was born in 1949 at Sinungkalangan, a remote village in Tambunan District but grew up at Kampung Bayangan, Keningau, Sabah, East Malaysia. He served in the Malaysian Armed Forces for several years before quitting and took up journalism in early ’70s. He is still freelancing for the Malaysian National News Agency (BERNAMA). He and his wife, Siti Habsah Abdillah, and their two sons, Mohd Ezrie and Mohd Erwin, live in Kota Kinabalu, the state capital of Sabah. He is currently working on a book about his life in the Army.
