The countdown to the announcement of the new seven natural wonders of the world has begun. To strengthen Jade Mountain’s bid for the top seven, Tamkang University recently formed a “Vote for Jade Mountain Club”, lead by the TKU President, Dr. Flora Chia-I Chang.

To coincide with the historic vote, the TKU Rock-climbing Club today (Nov 10) published a new book entitled “Looking Up to Jade Mountain”. The book was written and compiled by a handful of rock-climbing enthusiasts from the Rock-climbing Club and edited by the President of the TKU Alumni Association Headquarters, Mr. Loo Soon. Through inspiring articles and breathtaking pictures, the book captures the beauty of Jade Mountain in all its shades, from the lush surrounds of East Asia’s highest peak in summer, to the magical plethora of colors that line the mountain tops in Spring, to the ice capped mountains in Winter. Mr. Soon noted: “I am blessed to have this opportunity, during my tenure as alumni president, to help in the publication of this tome that crystallizes the raw beauty of Jade Mountain and presents it to readers in a high quality format”.

The TKU Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Ko Chih-en, praised the students on their efforts, saying: “students from the TKU Rock-climbing Club have broken the traditional mold for running a student association. They have become pioneers and models for other students who will soon be taking required student club courses”.

Extracts from the book include descriptions of Jade Mountain from professional rock-climbers and conservation officials, such as the first Taiwanese female to successfully climb Mt. Everest from both the north and south ridges, Xiu-zhen Jiang.
