Michico : Hello everyone, I am back from Chilai Mountain, Chilai Mountain has a nickname : DARK/BLACK-Chilai, because it has too many mistery stories and mountain accident. Even so, I like to try and see, because Chilai is very very beautiful, and I will very very careful to climb it, and thanks to Arion's love, I was safe return last night. I am back.
This is Chilai Mountain entrance, at July 24 early in the morning, and you can see how funny I wear, because the sunlight is very strong I have to protect my skin.
The view is wonderful.
After the last shot, we are moving to the mountain opposite to your view, that black far away mountain, and we have to reach there tonight. And you can imagine, when we are back, how tired will we be.
Climb up and climb down, but the scene on the high mountain always let us forget the physical pain.
These collapse cliff usually over 70~80 degree, except focus, still focus, or you will fall, we are all carry very heavt bagpacks to climb on, need to have very big strength and tough willpower.(But I can still have hand to use camera, hee hee)
Can you feel the danger of these cliff?
This is the power of nature.
We saw many strange clouds, and used our will to climb up, finally reach the house that we will stay.
The Chinese word means "mieow", yes, cat's mieow, I have to take a photo with mieow!
Next morning, July 25, we are ready to climb to Chilai North peak. There is a feature of Chilai North Peak, is one side are green grass, another slide is stone cliff, everytime I see it on web always makes me touching, today, I can see it directly from my own eyes, I was really really really touching!!
And at 90 degree mountain cliff, I climbed and climbed and climbed... my camera protect lens also has scar, I use my 2 hands 2 feets really really climb very hard to go up!
I reach Chilai Mountain - North peak!
I wear my signature clothes everytime let I climb up to the mountain I have to wear (yes, Adan's face)!
Dear Arion, thank you for your blessing, I brought your wishes to the top now!
How cool I am!
Clouds is also beautiful, after we back from the North Peak, we back to the mountain house took a short break, and immediately to the Chilai Main Peak, because the road to the main peak is really far, so we can't rest too long. The mountain house to North peak, come and back took 3.5hrs.
The path on the main peak also not funny, we have to climb with non-stop, and the clouds and mists in the mountain blowing and blowing, that was wet and cold, we have to give ourselves more faith.
Some comes rain, some comes sunlight, you will never know what will show up in the high mountain.
With another crazy steep up, the worst side of the Chilai mean peak is when you think you are nearly to the top, there is another mountain hill shows up and you have to climb another round.
And I finally reach to the Main Peak, and because the main peak also rain, so we didn't stay for a long time, we have to hurry back, we come and back between mountain house and Main peak used 5hrs.
Last night at Chilai mountain house, my toes were almost died, hahaha~~
The last day, the main peak of Chilai cover a fog, shy and say goodbye to us.
Again, lots of cliff and crazy steep degrees, but we were climbing down, finally reach to the safer ground.
Finally I back to the beginning, the feeling was so excellent!
