Star trekking

Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

DRY WEATHER, CLOUD­LESS SKIES, HIGH al­ti­tude and zero light pol­lu­tion make for per­fect con­di­tions for stargaz­ing, and what more evoca­tive way to en­joy it than on a pe­riod-style car­a­van on the back­roads of Yun­nan. Car­a­vane Lio­tard takes as­tron­omy afi­ciona­dos across the Righa Plain, tak­ing in breath­tak­ing views of ma­jor land­marks such as the Yad­ing Range and Aboudje Sa­cred Lake. Though cater­ing to all lev­els of ad­ven­turer, par­tic­i­pants are ex­pected to walk for six hours a day on av­er­age with civilised pic­nic breaks planned for each af­ter­noon. Au­then­tic-look­ing bell tents are pro­vided for overnight stays at grass­land camp­sites. As­tronomer Alexis Enel will be on-hand to ex­plain the con­stel­la­tions, share sto­ries and give tips on how to take good shots of the night sky. The car­a­van sea­son runs from mid-march to late-novem­ber, and prices are avail­able on de­mand at info@car­a­vane-lio­
