Before I came on 6 months travel to Asia, I decide to get a GPS device to record where I stop and where I went. I records all of the waypoints and upload them to a small program I wrote. It will list the major waypoint on Google Maps. Which allows me to look at the big pictures. I use this GPS device in the Yellow Mountain (HuaShan). The mountain is so beautiful. It’s named the #1 mountain in China. If you’ve there, you will agree with me.
So I took my GPS into the mountain. That actually tells me where I am and what are the latitude and longitude. So we know how far we staill need to climb in the mountain. At the end, we spent 9 hours up and down in the mountian. It doesn’t include the time we spend in the cable cart up and down the mountain. We cannot believe that we finish the the #1 mountain in one day.
Next time I will stay over night in the mountain to see the sun rise. The following pictures are one of the best scene I love. It’s so scary. We don’t know how people make this pathway. It’s unbelievable.
We pass the challenge and look back what we have done. That’s really scary.
Back to my GPS, it’s the most basic model from Garmin. It doesn’t support the map, because it’s not compatible with Chinese version of map and there is no map in China. So why spent few hundred $$ while I will not be able to take advantage from it.
