Emeishan: 13 hours of stairs climbing to enlightment

It is dark and all one can see are shapes of eleven sleeping bodies of fellow Chinese hikers. Stepped slowly on the ladder to leave the attic of a hermitage we spent the night in, we quickly realized that our bodies have not yet recovered from the eleven hours of stairs climbing the day before. We are back on the track to conquer Mt. Emei, the highest of the four sacred Buddhist mountains of China.

Manaslu Circuit Trekking 2018 – Costs and budget

Manaslu is a great choice worth an investment. Topping up a little more than on the notorious Anapurna circuit can eliminate hundreds of fellow trekkers from your views. We were struggling to get our cost estimates before the trip, hence we decided to write this article. We decided to do the trip on our own and budget along the way rather than going on a “package tour”. Result: It’s cheaper and more flexible!
