Opened in 1992 and now becoming increasingly popular with trekkers, the 14-day Manaslu Trek around the world’s eighth highest peak (8,156m) is a great alternative to the Annapurna Circuit, with its teahouse accommodation, Buddhist monasteries, precarious bridges across raging rivers, and majestic mountain scenery.
In 2012, Wayne and Mary Perkins walked the Manaslu Circuit, with a side trip up the Tsum Valley.
In April 2011, Adam Glover set off from London with a bicycle and a tent to return to New Zealand, a journey that would take two years to complete. In Central Asia and China he pedalled his way over snow-covered mountains, across deserts, and on roads where it was sometimes easier to push the bike than to cycle.
Phil Dickson, a pillar of Wellington’s art community, is a keen walker, tramper and cyclist with a strong interest in local geography and history.
In Phil Dickson’s Wellington he writes about some of his favourite places around the Wellington region, from the city to the Hutt and the Tararua and Rimutaka ranges.
The book is illustrated with his watercolours, oil paintings and drawings.
Copies will be available for sale at the clubrooms for $45.
Peggy Munn describes a trip she led in the Wills and Hunter valleys in March 2014 as "a combination of flat bits, steep bits, very steep bits and oh my gosh steep bits, wet bits, gale-force windy bits, are we nearly there bits (no), and some rather long days".
Ian Armitage is a keen ornithologist who won the environment category of the 2014 Wellingtonian of the Year awards for his leadership of the Rimutaka Forest Park Trust in re-establishing a brown kiwi population in the forest park.
He is a Council member of Birds New Zealand (brand name of The Ornithological Society of New Zealand), which promotes the study of birds and their habitats, and fosters knowledge and enjoyment of birds as a precious part of our wildlife heritage.
When Sheena Hudson returned to Wellington in 2012 from some summer hiking in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, Mary Inglis said to her, "Ah but you haven't seen it in winter!"
With such a challenge from her old friend, Sheena went back in the winter of 2013 and spent a week snowshoeing and dog sledding in this amazing Park.
Club member Professor Mike Crozier of Victoria University explains and illustrates what landform features (shapes, patterns, composition and texture) can tell us about the evolution and history of the landscape.
