We’d planned the Level 4 Great Flood hike for today, but with a forecast high of 37°C we decided we’d better change the plan!
The Great Flood hike finishes with a walk out Yunmeng Gorge, a scenic area with a river and good pools for swimming. Instead of doing the full hike, we drove straight to Yunmeng Gorge and hiked up to the swimming holes - a much cooler way to spend the day.
We hiked up the gorge, a flat and easy walk between high cliffs. It’s usually even easier, but with the hot weather we were all feeling the heat.
But the reward for venturing out on such a hot day was worth it!
