For safety reasons, and the quality of the trip, this trip's itinerary is weather dependant. So, the dates can be changed.

Andrew Walker is my co-leader, and, we have planned for it since last month, but we could not make it. We will spend a weekend camping on top of Donkey Mountain to have more time to relax and explore various features of it.

Donkey Mt has beautiful refreshing views of Wolgan Valley, and amazing maze of formation of rocky pagodas. At night, you may see stunning milky ways if lucky. please bring a cameras.

There is no water on Donkey Mountain and each person must carry, at least, 4 litres of water.

Please, bring a small day pack if you can.

You should be fit to fully enjoy this trip, as we will be hiking up steep mountainous tracks.

Please, please sign up, only, after testing yourself by running continuously, slowly, without resting, for 30 minutes. That is the minimum required fitness.

You have to obtain a rucksack of at least a 55 litre of volume/capacity, as we will be carrying all our camping equipments, food & water in our rucksacks, and, be comfortable walking up the mountain carrying the rucksack weighing between 12kg to15kg.

Then we will set up camp on top of donkey mountain and explore the area.

Weather can change very quickly. So, please bring cold weather clothes, which are made of: wool, polypropylene, spandex, nylon, polyester, ....etc. Please, no cotton materials.
