Kangding, Sichuan-bound Hailuogou chapter
Hailuogou of the iceberg and hot springs
Hailuogou is relatively rare in low-altitude glaciers. The way is very beautiful scenery.
This is the smallest of a group. In addition to our two couples, that is, a family of three, plus a guide, a driver, a small van, the number is not enough table. Over the next trip, the seven of us is almost always eat at the table.
Guide, a native of Kham guy, honest, very fond of singing, but also speak a relatively standard Mandarin. Prior to the tour guides were all very Sichuan spoke Mandarin, so a hearing on the grid-wing openings are very comfortable. By the way, his name is called lattice-wing. Other things, grid-wing lies, did not say two sentences, there is no wait for us booing on the initiative to ask for everyone to sing a song. Grid-wing sat next to the driver, in order to enable us to listen carefully to his voice, his body as far as possible to reverse the front of us, but that he was talking much more difficult. Singing has passed, I can not imagine that we will encounter such a silent, simple guides. Even at an altitude of over 3000 meters of altitude, the grid-yung with his beautiful voice to accompany us. With the grid-wing singing, our travel became very easy to trip up. Grid-wing was a rare and very simple guide: This road grid-wing did not take us to any one special sale to tourists, "a local specialty" stores, go to the hotel is also very delicious meals, the weight is enough. Coupled with the unique landscape, let us have left a deep impression on him.
Add to the fun is encountered along the mountain some sort of beauty, the driver will take the initiative to propose to allow our appreciation. In fact, the distance the western Sichuan Province, Sichuan-Tibet line of well-known reputation for rugged, often the way with 180-degree turn, and good drivers, designed to open the Sichuan-Tibet line, experience is extensive. We are also experiencing momentum during a return trip very vast military vehicles, with drivers, skilled craft, we are way beyond the military vehicles, counted as many as nearly 50. If you followed them over 2 Long Hill Tunnel, it was tragic.
This trip trip me the most proud and most are easy in Hailuogou its first peak in Sichuan - Gongga Mountains, so named because afar seemed to conch. Hailuogou is unique in that it not only the thousand years of the glaciers, at the foot of the glacier there is magic in the hot springs. Hailuogou large ice falls are very spectacular, but we did not see. Because when you go directly to the glacier cableway had just cut the ribbon, is still in trial operation period. Day's fog relatively large, and the management out of precaution, not an open rope, and even get on rope and can not see the face of large ice falls and decided to walk up the hill.
We reject the bearers such as the mouth of the ropeway, the facts proved that this decision is correct. Despite the arrival bearers of the iceberg as far as can be, and there is some distance away from the foot and is first up to the Peak Zaiqu to the tip of the foot, up and down still have to expend a lot of physical strength, but the overall mileage, there is only need two hours . And we also found hidden in the bushes on the way to the small gray rabbit, in its natural compass of any way that we did not find these two outsiders. Not many visitors that day, a few people scattered on the road, and our family of three with a long-term missing, they look a bit far to go home the iceberg. On the way encounter a pair of foreigners, like geologists. We are on the glacier also invited people who are in the local herbs as our guide, while the two of them on their own mountain climbing, walking in front of us.
Glacier climbing is more dangerous, because you might not know the feet are solid Xuekuai still only covered by thin ice crevasse. Listen to local people say, where there have been several attempts to come to the Sino-Japanese climbers reach the top, but all at the expense of a few good players, and even their skills have not been found. There was also a boy will always remain in the Hailuogou of the iceberg, he was classmates come to the high altitude Department, suddenly excited, running to the side of the body to the tip of a piece of clothing to be removed and thrown away , but also loudly sing ... ... the iceberg, he responded with enthusiasm to embrace him and his forever remain in the ice world. The boy's girlfriend used his father's forces launched a considerable police carried out search and rescue. Grid-wing also had saved a fall mountain Hailuogou girl, the girl was covered in blood sent to rescue from the mountain back down. Hailuogou Glacier is no longer before us calmly to show the calm of the iceberg, it is dangerous, it is not language, it is mysterious.
Hailuogou glacier tour guide said that even to the Pacific Ocean, and if lost from the ice crevices down is likely to find in the Pacific, only to have to find on a. This is jest as if lost can really go, it is estimated to find the person I am afraid that is very difficult. Bend down to pick up a small guide stones throw to go in to the ice cracks, only to hear a rock in the ice cracks in the collision collision collision, but can not hear the voice of landing or into the water. Take a look at the mouth of a crevasse tear, although the lines of beautiful, but when two or more people a while dazzling. Speaking tour guide coupled to listen to these words really makes people a bit Haner timid to mention we also walk in the mist layers of ice in it.
At first, when Deng icebergs, fog is not the heavy, mist flying, in the iceberg of free variable. But we need only to large sub-corner on the waterfall at the foot of the ice, the mist suddenly thickens, we can see no more than five meters from the line of sight. Standing on the tip of more than 4500 meters above sea level, I suffered from altitude hair to be, in front of the iceberg flew constantly moving backwards, his eyes are open and shut to see this situation. But think about at the foot of the iceberg has been conquered, I raised a thumb in front of the camera, only pictures I have nothing on the face, a look blankly. Body sweat with cold fog, people blowing cold, and we had to go back. The way carefully, especially when walking on the edge of the iceberg, the three men succeeded in hand, one small step for a small step to lift knee, because one slip of concentration, then do not know where it had fallen.
Guides and grid-wing are surprised we have gone so far, said that only 5% of visitors have visited us to place. When we are down to the tip of the foot, he saw several other groups of tourists to the foot of a little mountain of ice, like a place when the baby pictures, play ice, the hearts of not help there is a sense of pride. After the downhill will not have much reaction to the altitude, and coupled with a bubble spa, what fatigue is gone.
Hailuogou hot springs odd odd it is located on the tip of the foot, in general, little ice and hot springs together. Hailuogou spa different pools have different temperatures, layers of bottom-up, the temperature gradually increased, the maximum has reached more than 80 degrees. We also go to the hot springs looked at, a very small spring, put put put to braving out of water and heat. If you are strong enough, you can also go ice-ri to taste, really cold Such is Life. If the winter, made a special trip to the Hailuogou climbing icebergs, hot springs bubble in especially enjoyable, think of snow towering icebergs, blanketed by Su-wrapped into the bubble in the hot springs is a multi-good enjoyment. In the Hailuogou tickets on the Hot Springs is a winter Hot Springs map, is really quite attractive.
In addition to a dedicated pool of hot springs spa, in the way down, we also went to the claims of "four strange" in a small hot spring. Spring is also a small, one can be eyesight, one can be boiled eggs, a washable athlete's foot, as well as a drink to cure stomach is not right. The people's problems are similar: it is not attached with a few spring from? However, we are also the first wash, eat eggs, drink plenty of water, and then their feet. Feet or spring water temperature is high, everyone's feet are Tangde bright red, warm, people sat around in a circle, there are some hot'm not afraid to stand in the water, attracted a while we exclaimed. Much slower to catch on in this hot spring Across the street, a quiet, floret little lawn, depending on a placid lake, a few tents dotted the lawn, the scenery is really a beautiful sight! No names, but it makes fascinating endless.
Leave Hailuogou, we continue to proceed to the destination of Kangding. A day trip, traveling Lawton, to have to Kangding is in the evening. Grid-wing posters tell us that due to the higher Kangding, a larger temperature difference between day and night. Conditions are not yet moved into a town on the West, such as mill hotel and found that there are as many electric blanket. Kangding, after a friend went to look at a number of speaking, Kangding hotel does relatively poor condition of some. Evening in the city of Kangding a walk along the way found to grow quite a lot of mixed Russian-style girl, very beautiful. Kangding town at night there is nothing to go to the office, selling tourist goods shop Cangshi not as Jiuzhaigou and other places.
In accordance with the schedule of tours, we travel the next day, "Happy Yo-mountain", "Mu Gecuo," and so on. Happy Yo-mountain In fact, there is no attraction, is a bare Bazi, including a White Tower. We do not intend to go, decided to go savage sea. But in the next day to eat breakfast and learned that the way to the Mu Gecuo experienced landslides, the driver told us that this road is a single line, even if one could go into a period, if the car inside out would have been next make way, the best better not go. Discussed again and again, we continue to proceed. Sure enough, not very good road, walking on the road the driver's phone rang, saying that landslides have been cleared better.
Muge Cuo is the Tibetan, Chinese, meaning Savage sea, is a plateau Haizi, said that many of these rare animals, a pity that we encounter nothing, but it is also common, as the panda Xiong Maohai visitors could not see the same general . The beautiful scenery along the road, and the first to Muge Cuo, the scene was still very good. 32 visitors, showing several of the loneliness and quiet Haizi plateau. Hai Zi was a blur of the ridge, patrol, the highest point the ridge is a shallow touch of white, that is snow. This is just the tip Hailuogou saw it different, Hailuogou Gongga mountains of ice hidden in the depths of losing the tip of the male risk, spectacular; and Mu Gecuo the snow-capped mountains is only shallow, as if the head girl The decorative accessories, contrasting gentle to the luxuriant sub-sea.
The other side of the road is along the path and on the mountains, and many children follow the visitors holding horses, in the hope that people can ride their horses to the Shiji Li outside of a grassland. Road, almost all horses step on them, because the very narrow, and there are a lot of horse manure. Is not the way you can see the roots at End of the snow, because the first two games of the world rain, at the foot of the mountain is the rain, snow in the mountains is a. Up to the mountains, you can see the flower blossoming azaleas wore, as well as an unknown purple flower. Castle Peak can be seen afar heavy, imagine that, after heavy Aoyama is a broad grasslands of the.
Mu Gecuo by the State nature conservation, but not many locals seem to live there. Sea next to the opposition, it was erected a simple wooden house, burning point of mutton string to tourists, people are very simple, also have their own drinking buttered tea for everyone to enjoy dart. Another horse photography specifically for visitors. Xiao Baima assembly very beautiful, but did not see it in two steps into the Hai Zi rush to get back out and wanted it Haizi very cold, but also not quite bear to. However, later pulls out those photos are really beautiful, not to be missed.
Postscript: A year has passed before write, and off this trip leisure to write about. In addition to Chengdu Dujiangyan within and outside the Qingcheng suburbs, we are in the local Staff Committee, first on the 4th Jiuzhaigou Huanglong tour, followed by a two-day tour Leshan Emei, and finally on the 4th Hailuogou Kangding tour. Have idle time each day traveling back to re-start, so do not feel hard journey. Of course, the Staff Committee and bad places, often has been delegated to shopping, but on the last tour was not Kangding; or reference of the group met again, and so have been contracted out to other groups. Because we are Staff Committee swim, so this may be nothing to help the backpacker travels right. Just want to share with you some experience, Sichuan is indeed beautiful.
