Jade Mountain Trip (June 10th — 12th)

Wonderful views along the 8.5KM trail to the Paiyun Lodge (排雲山莊) at 3,402m above sea level

It took nine of us six hours to complete the trail (including two longish breaks for snacks/lunch/rest)


The skies were unbelievably blue! Couldn't have asked for better weather for the trek up!
