If you only have time for one day trip in Chongqing, China, definitely go to Wulong (武隆) to see the spectacular karst formations. Advertisements
Last (belated) autumn post before moving on to winter. Just 50 minutes and USD3.50 from Central Tokyo by train, hiking Mount Takao is a perfect way to work off all those holiday calories and get in touch with nature.
Trip reports and budgeting for my Nov 2017 road trip to Nikko, Japan. ‘Cos public transport is for plebes.
I know, I know, it’s already winter. But better late than never for this trip report where we went to see the famous autumn colours of Nikko, Japan.
We did the Kathleen Springs walk (2.5km, Grade 2 of 5) en route to Curtin Springs, the only motel accommodation between Kings Canyon and Ayers Rock. The 300km drive from Kings Canyon to Ayers Rock is on sealed roads and you do not need a 4WD for this segment
An easy, fun walk at Ayers Rock and a blog review of Ayers Rock Resort where we stayed two nights.
Alas, our plan to complete the 7.4km Valley of the Winds walk at Kata-Tjuta was thwarted by the rain. Saw the rare desert waterfalls though!
