I spent my last vacation trekking ( 徒步旅行) in Nepal，a small country in the Himalaya
Mountains of Asia. On a trekking vacation, you walk for long distances through the
mountains. There are very few roads in Nepal, so trekking is the best way to travel . It’s
best if you have a guide . The guides know the best paths to take and they also help
trekkers with their bags. Our guide even cooked our food for us . Every day, we trekked for
about four hours before lunch, and about two hours in the afternoon. At the end of the
day’s trek, we sat around a campfire and talked about the things we saw. Then we went to
sleep in large tents. Every morning, our guide brought breakfast to our tent. It was great.
At the end of the trip, I didn’t want to go home!
Question: What is the best title for this passage?
A. Traveling through Asia B. The people of Nepal
C. Exercise and Health D. Waking in the Mountains
Read Jane’s diary entries about her vacation and answer the question.
Did Jane have a good time on Monday? What about on Tuesday?
I arrived in Penang in Malaysia this morning with my family. It was sunny and hot, so we
decided to go to the beach near our hotel. My sister and I tried paragliding . I felt like I
was a bird. It was so exciting. For lunch, we had something very special—Malaysian yellow
noodles. They were delicious! In the afternoon, we rode bicycles to Georgetown.. There are a
lot of new buildings now, but many of the old buildings are still there. In Weld Quay, a
really old place in Georgetown, we saw the houses of the Chinese traders from 100 years ago.
I wonder what life was like here in the past. I really enjoyed walking around the town.
Tuesday, July 16th
What a difference a day makes! My father and I decided to go to Penang Hill today. We
wanted to walk up to the top, but then it stared raining a little so we decided to take the
train. We waited over an hour for the train because there were too many people. When we got
to the top, it was raining really hard. We didn’t have an umbrella so we were wet and cold.
It was terrible! And because of the bad weather, we couldn’t see anything. My father
didn’t bring enough money, so we only had one bowl of rice and some fish. The food tasted
great because I was so hungry!
