Route-find­ing in Yad­ing

Action Asia - - REAL DEALS -

THIS SEPTEM­BER, HONG KONG-BASED a dvent u re s peci a l i s t Whist l i ng Ar­row i s launch­ing a trek into a true moun­tain sanc­tu­ary. The aim of the ex­pe­di­tion is to forge a new ap­proach route into the sa­cred moun­tains of Yad­ing. Here, in a na­ture reser ve, lie three stun­ning peaks, sanc­ti­fied by the fifth Dalai Lama back in the 17th-cen­tury. The trek fea­tures rel­a­tively lit­tle sup­port, the aim be­ing to ex­plore peaks, forested val­leys and pris­tine lakes on an ‘un­scripted’ ad­ven­ture through the Ti­betan bor­der­lands of western China. Along the way, the team will tra­verse ter­rain sel­dom, if ever, trekked by out­siders. Such an op­por­tu­nity does not come eas­ily though – this trip best suits rel­a­tively ex­pe­ri­enced trekkers seek­ing an ad­ven­ture in the spirit of the in­trepid ex­plor­ers of yesteryear, far from the crowds that clog more estab­lished Hi­malayan routes.
