Plenty more of this next year please?! I just want to say a big thanks to all the friends, new and old, that have joined me, pushed me, and adventures with me through 2019. Next year is already filling up with some pretty exciting trips, and I genuinely can't wait!

On our first day hike the weather was sunny and keep us sweaty starting from jump off to Paiyun lodge. We truly enjoy the greenery and the animals we meet along the trail. Fellow hikers especially the Taiwan's Mountaineering Society shows big smile every time we see each other. As we reach the Paiyun Lodge the weather changes and started to cry, good thing we already settled at the lodge. Since the mountain hut is at the high altitude expect that the temperature is lower and colder and your body and breathing is adjusting. More so, since the lodge provided a meal for every mountaineer and it sounds quality wise we're expecting to have a delicious dinner however it was all in the mind as it fails everything that we expect for. I don't want to explain it further just think what I mean. The night before we slept we decided to hike late since the weather is not in good condition and it's about 2.5km from the lodge going to the summit. On the second day of our hike it was super dim and foggy. One of my co-hiker started to felt the symptom's of altitude sickness wherein she has having difficulty to breathe while ascending. Good thing she's brave and pushing herself to reach the top. It was quarter to 6 in the morning us we arrived at the summit. We already expect that the sun will not rise anymore since it's cloudy however we don't expect to have a bit of clearing and witness the sea of clouds above the summit. We are lucky enough to conquered the highest mountain of Taiwan. Cheers for more mountains to climb.
