Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg

Hiking and Sightseeing in Northern Yunnan, China

the plan for the 2017 adventure After a prolonged to-and-fro, we decided to climb a rather tall-ish mountain in Yunnan. The plan was simple (at least on paper…): fly to Lijiang in Yunnan province, drive to Haba village, acclimatize for one day, walk up to the base camp (4100 meters above sea level), acclimatize for […]
