26-28 August 2001

26th Took the long walk back to base camp and collapsed.

27th Did very little as I recovered from exhaustion.

28th Climbed the seconds highest karst around with Chris and Rachel, lots of scrambling but the main problem was the thick bamboo we had to push through. Still it was worth it for the view from the top of mountains stretching north into China. Coming down we passed through the village where a woman let us walk through under her house. Darren and Mr Tue came back from the final vegetation plot and told us they heard monkeys and there was a rumour that gibbons had been seen in the area.

The harp trap got 20 bats, ten at the morning check and ten when it was checked shortly after dusk.
