Chengdu man conquers five mountains in five days
A 30-year-old man from Chengdu, who goes by the pseudonym "Nan Duoduo", has recently gained attention for climbing China's five great mountains in just five days over the May Day holiday.
As early as the beginning of April, Nan began planning a five-day mountain climbing trip.
"As this trip is challenging in all aspects, it must be planned," Nan said. Sometimes, he would go on an impromptu trip, but this five-day journey to climb the five mountains was only confirmed after evaluating his own abilities.
He planned the itinerary "down to every single minute" to make sure he could catch every train and the plan would go smoothly, making the trip look like an "intense training schedule" for a special forces soldier.
The intensity was not a problem, as Nan has the habit of hiking and running marathons; the most difficult part was getting tickets in time. "The travel rush was so fierce that I only got the ticket from Changsha to Zhengzhou the day of departure."
The trip cost Nan 4,000 yuan and would have been impossible without the country's extensive transportation network.
"It's not only a super-cool travel log, but an advertisement for China's infrastructure," one netizen said on Weibo.
