I almost forgot! This Thanksgiving a group (including myself!) will be climbing Mt Qilai South Peak (3,358 meters) and Mt Nanhua (3,184 meters). They’re both on the ‘Hundred peaks’ list, and are regarded as both amongst the easiest to climb AND among the most beautiful. We attempted the climb about eighteen months ago in spring 2009, and after a fine first day, had to abandon the last leg to the summits after being trapped in the mountain hut during more than a day of torrential rain! Hoping for better luck this time. I’ve attached a few photos from last time to give you an idea how beautiful this place is.
If anyone is interested in coming and is in shape (the climb is about of similar difficulty to the Yushan/Jade Mountain climb, although it’s quite a bit further), please let me know ASAP! The dates are :
Leaving: November 24th (Wednesday) at 3:30
Return: November 27th (Saturday) in the afternoon.
