Year 11 International Silver Award expedition to Yaolin

05 九月 2014

Year 11 students participated in the International Silver Award expedition trip to Yaolin from 5th June to 9th June, 2014.

After a 16 hour train ride, Year 11 arrived in Huangzhou and then took a bus ride to the Yaolin Mountains. Tents were pitched and preparation started for the two day hike:  sorting the route plan, programming the GPS, selecting the food for camp, unpacking all the unnecessary stuff that had been brought and then repacking of the rucksacks.  All ready for the morning departure.

Morning came and with it the rain. Off they set making very good time for their journey. It stopped raining long enough for tents to be put up and tea to be prepared/eaten, but with such an early start all were ready for sleep very early too.

Day 2 -  another early start and the rain joined them again. Their next camp - a local village, this time the rain did not stop and it was almost impossible to keep dry. Over the course of the journey they discovered many things their teammates;  who was the most optimistic, who was most helpful,  and which were not ‘morning people’! The last trek seemed never ending and it was slippery with the rain lashing down the mountain side. Half way down a snake was encountered. The guides advised a retreat while they dealt with it, sending it on its way.

At last the pickup point and never before was a coach so warmly welcomed. All that was left now was to a shower at the Hostel and Lunch at a local restaurant.  Then it was homeward bound on the sleeper train – Ah bliss!
