      难以置信。。。 这是在陆地上拍到的星空么?!

      不知道是应该说你的相机真棒 还是那里的天空如此洁净

      肉眼看到的效果比着照片好看的多吧

      这张照片调整了一些色阶,除了颜色有些夸张外(那种黄色),和肉眼看到的差不多。因为地势很高(海拔5600米以上),天空无云而且纯净,所以非常壮观。

      你可以搜索我的照片“星空”,还有一些,呵呵。

      Hi Livepine, I'm doing a fundraising climb of Mt. Yuzhu Oct 2010, and I really need some advice. Did you do a mountaineering course before Yuzhu? How technical is it?

      Hi gone2nepal,

      I guess you're following the south route from south camp, which is the most common and easiest way, right? If so, apart from a good health and fitting body, you don't need to do any special training as it's a non-technical and entry level route. You may need to learn how to use crampon and rope together (this may be required above camp 1), but this is quick and should be provided by your team prior to reaching camp 1.

      Of course, it's better if you'll have regular endurance training before climbing, such as running or swimming. Also, I think it might be pretty cold in that area in October.

      But you do need to pay attention to high altitude sickness, which amounts up more than 80% of failure and accidents in Yuzhu south route. Yuzhu's base camp is near 5000m, one of the highest base camp in China probably. High altitude sickness is hardly avoidable, but there might be some means to reduce it:

      1. Before your trip, be sure to examine your health status. You should avoid trip if you have high blood pressure or heart disease. Some may suggest you can take some medicine (e.g., rhodiola rosea) to reduce high altitude sickness, but personally I think they are basically placeo.

      2. When you're travelling to Mt Yuzhu, better follow a gradual arising altitude. For example, you can take train in Beijing (40m), reach Lan Zhou (1500m+), rest for one day, go to Xining (2200m+), reset for one day, go to Golmud (2800m+), reset for 2 days, go to Xidatan village (4150m+), reset for 1-2 days, finally reach the base camp (4800m+), and rest for 1-2 more days.

      3. Be sure to descend whenever you feel significant uncomfortable. Contact your team doctor to avoid pulmonary edema or cerebral edema.

      Here's a site for an overview of climbing: www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock/151068/yuzhu-feng.html

      Good luck!
