comment Trek-able peaks in the himalayan range
Definitely, and it's probably a good way to use all that altitude acclimation.

FWIW, if you're acclimatising for a couple days in Lijiang City (2500 m), you can do the lowest (~4200 m) of Yulong Xueshan's 19 summits as a non-technical long day hike.

comment Trek-able peaks in the himalayan range
I haven't done it, but it's definitely an overnighting sort of thing. Ed Jocelyn would have more details and know of other low-intensity peaks in the area. This summitpost page has lots of detail but might be slightly out of date.

comment How can I identify edible berries/fruit from poisonous?
This is a great answer! For plants (not mushrooms), there are many plants you can eat, and for many genera you can take it for granted that any species in the genus will be edible. For a given area, it really doesn't take a lot to learn a reasonable percentage of the flora, both the especially edible and the especially toxic.

I edited my answer to mention the cabins and Torla. Happy hiking - I'm jealous!

comment What are the minimum set of shoes required for hiking outdoors
@Vorac, I agree in general, but try scree skiing with a pair of sandals... Sometimes a bit of protection is nice.
