Equipment for various weather conditions
Wind-proof / water-proof jackets:
There is thundershower in Danlan from time to time. A wind-proof, water-proof jacket that breathes well is indispensable.
Rain coats and rain paints:
Rain suits are recommended. Disposable rainwear is not ideal for mountain climbing and it breaks easily.
Leggings are worn inside rain paints. The leggings keep small rocks, sands and bugs from falling into one’s shoes. They keep rain water from dripping down the shoes or dews from making paints moisty.
Multi-functional outdoor shoes / rain boots:
Most of the trails in Danlan are rather primitive. On a rainy day, they become wet and slippery. Remember to wear multi-functional outdoor shoes with a strong grip or slip-proof rain boots for a safe journey.
*Shoes for everyday purposes are not suitable for mountain trekking. With soft soles, they aren’t shock-proof, nor can they protect users’ joints. They easily make users fall down on a muddy surface.
Ultraviolet rays are stronger in high mountains than on flatland. Thus, make sure to bring enough sunscreen goods, such as head scarves, hats, and sunglasses.
Things to keep warm:
Never think it won’t get too cold in the mountains! With every ascending 100 meters, it actually gets colder by 0.6 Celsius degrees. Thus, at 1,000m mountaintop, the temperature drops by 6 Celsius degrees. Make sure you bring things to keep warm before departure, such as thick hats, headscarves, jackets, and wool trekking socks.
