A couple weeks back I hiked BaCengBaMoShan 巴層巴墨山 and really enjoyed the area, especially the watermelon river. While researching that hike I learned of WaiMaLiBaShan 外麻里巴山.

A couple weeks ago I decided to try hiking to NanHuLuShan 南湖呂山 again after a failed attempt several months back. I was prepared for a tough hike of hacking and slashing, but as it turns out it was the exact opposite.
