D1: Jongkushtai - Hut Camp
July 26, 2022
A tea stall by the Jongkushtai River
A night of snoring, I do not know whether it is a horse or a person, resounding loudly in the sky, but fortunately there is a Kavas sleep aid, actually also confused to dawn, is considered a good sleep.
Jongkushtai woke up earlier than Yining, the road was already full of traffic, think about the village breakfast is still a bit far away, there is no appetite, and Ahao sister set the noon hand-held rice + milk tea, eat it and you can start hiking.
The rabbit is so cute, I want to stew it!
We packed our bags and confirmed the itinerary with Ah Hao, this time his cousin Ah Xiao took us, all young and handsome young men.
This time also prepared a satellite phone, if the situation, you can seek help in time.
The gas tank is a little underprepared, we are ready to cook a big meal, there is no way, if there is really not enough, we can only let Ah Xiao see if we can share a few from other horse gangs on the road, worrying about.
It was still early for lunch, and it seemed like there was nowhere to go, so I aimed at the Jongkushtai River and set up a tea stall, which was an extremely pleasant thing to do.
The sun is warm, the river is clear, the tea is fragrant, what a harmonious atmosphere, if possible, I really want to stay here for a few more days, to let go of everything and enjoy life.
The ceiling of hand-held rice
Tea stall time passes quickly, which has not yet arch party a few sentences, hand-held rice is ready, close the stall for dinner, three times.
Two large plate of hand grasped rice, not that hand grasped it, how to give a spoon, I silently grabbed the spoon, brainstormed a little as a child hand grasped rice, that is really hand grasped rice.
Truth be told, there was a lot of rice and very little meat, and everyone still had a great time eating and pretending to be wowed.
Is there anything more enjoyable than eating?
To pay, I am not wow, 150 a plate!!! This is the ceiling of the hand-held rice, right, I was hasty, only asked the price, did not ask the unit, the mood became a little unattractive, out of the mix, sooner or later is going to fall into the pit, get used to get used to it.
14:00 Wusun Ancient Road starting point
Wusun is my own love to come
The notice is dense with words, forgive me for being illiterate, I only recognize the punctuation marks.
There were too many cars in the village, and it took a while to get to the starting point. A makeshift house, registered identification information, listened to the management's safety education, I nodded my head like a woodpecker, yes, you are right, it has to be like this, Wusun is my own to come, I love to come.
Signed, fingerprinted and photographed with Ah Xiao holding up the commitment, the procedure is complete.
At the starting point for a group photo, the weather is good to burst, is a bit of the sun, but just to replenish some calcium.
Let's go, towards Paradise Lake, towards Darshan, and more importantly, towards the fragrant goat baa!
15:00 PM Jongkushtai River Valley
The indisputable harrumph
Today's trip is about 15 kilometers up the Jongkushtai River valley to the hut camp, which seems to be also called Two River Mouth Camp, marked by that suspension bridge.
From the starting point, there is a large expanse of primeval forest, the sun shines down from between the trees, the Jongkushtai River is sometimes turbulent and sometimes gentle, and the water is white and clamorous.
The world originally did not have roads, walking more horses, it also became a road. We followed the horse path through the woods, this is the highway ah.
Trees are growing like this, there is a gap of more than two meters, just so you can stand and hide from the sun, the world is amazing!
All the way is such a view, happy to take off, the horse also became fragrant!
To go through the forest, is a large pasture, green, a flock of sheep in front of our startled, fleeing around, the indisputable haram with them also scattered around, filled the air, no half stink.
15:43 Jongkoo Riverside Ranch
Catching the sheep bleating
Large pastures, there are large sheep bleating, they are uncontested, leisurely and comfortable to eat grass, leisurely and comfortable to grow up, and leisurely and comfortable in bunches, fragrant.
Pass them by quietly and steal not one.
And like a hungry tiger pounced on them, scattering them in fear.
The walking kebabs are unforgettable!
16:42 Tree Holes
Usefulness of tree holes
The scenery is too beautiful, although the delicate sun is like fire, but also can not hold down the heart of excitement, trembling hands wow.
Then the crappy phone, just shoot are blockbusters, without any retouching.
The moment of rest, Xie found a tree hole, which cat went in and spoke a half-minute whisper, probably made a wish to eat sheep, probably also dug the treasure it.
Keep moving forward!
The beauty of the time do not know the road in it, you want to follow the river, walking, walking to the people in the sheep pen, which is how much you want to eat sheep ah!
The sharp crawled out of the sheep pen, accidentally grass prick, raw pain, this grass is poisonous.
17:26 Wooden Bridge
The surprise of turning right over the bridge
The horse gang departed from the village, they came slowly, we went slowly.
This is about to cross the wooden bridge, a small uphill, then the endless green, surrounded by the tip of the mountain still has a little white, wonderful!
Excellent five star campground, also has a cabin, this can't be the arrival, it's only 5:30.
And then confirm, and not here, is to cross a suspension bridge to the night camp, open the map to see, still in 5 km away, continue to rush!
An eagle soars in the sky.
The front, back and left have to take a group photo.
Compare your heart to a rabbit, or a black rabbit.
Another undercut to the river, the skull.
The rest of the journey, accompanied by gravel and a slow rise in elevation, was a bit tiring and thirsty.
I was alone, forward, forward, forward! The running shoes made the soles of my feet a little uncomfortable, the soles were too thin for such a gravel road.
19:49 Cabin camp by the suspension bridge
First camp dinner
Finally arrived at the suspension bridge, after the bridge is the camp, you can lie flat, it's good, the students behind are still shooting the whole way.
The bridge wobbled and weakened, and the water roared and roared down under it.
At 19:50 pm, we arrived at the campground, almost 15 km of walking, about 5 hours. There was already a team at the campground first, tents were pitched and the team members were resting in bits and pieces.
After a short time, the students behind arrived one by one, with a difference of 40 minutes before and after.
Everyone hands and feet to set up the big tent, the cabin owner has a few hairy children, enthusiasm can not be, here to touch there to see, mandatory help, do not let also unhappy, really a little naughty.
Pretend to split a material, at least the momentum has been full.
Washing and cutting vegetables and cooking vegetables, busy and happy. A pot of dry rice cooked into a dry rice that is not thin rice, too south.
Come on, let's eat!
This tossing and turning is more than 11:00 at night 。。。。。 It was dark and we were ready for bed.
July 27, 2022, 0:50
The horse arched the fruit of the vegetable
The starry night sky is very beautiful, the Milky Way visible to the naked eye, only to see the sky dark clouds will float a piece to, rain on a few drops, getting colder and colder, it is estimated that only five or six degrees.
Finally lay down, but as if I do not know which one is looking for the horse, that owl, a little scary.
In the middle of the night, always feel who is rustling in the tent that really can not hold it, shouting curry up to see the next, did not think, the horse arched ingredients that bag, do not know what was arched, anyway, first reload the bag, the world seems to be a lot quieter.
This look at the time, it is already more than 3:00 am.
D2: Jundasaka - River Valley Camp
July 27, 2022
7:36 Cabin Camp
The cold, biting water is relentless!
In the morning, the sun is shining, rummaging through the ingredients bag, good guys, the apples are almost arch, feelings we are for the horse big brother apples ah.
Washed a penetrating cold face, stinging cold, feel cheeky enough.
Xie got up early in the morning to toss and turn, cooked millet rice for everyone, and then started boiling hot water for everyone, this parent can be quite good.
At 9:30, everyone was packed and laughing, which was going to continue to leave.
Today, it's a hike of about 16 kilometers over a darshan at an elevation of about 3700, followed by a long descent to a stream valley whose name I can't remember to set up camp. Students from Guizhou next door also left at about the same time, and the river valley was bustling with activity.
Today my task is to collect the team, chai chai Yingzi and other pioneers, first to the camp to work, wait for me to arrive, cross your feet and wait for food, think about it is wonderful ah.
9:38 Cabin Camp
I can't walk before I leave
The vanguard a few majestic set off, all the way up to Qiongdasan, about 1200 of climbing, then it was straight down all the way, also almost 1200 of descending.
Have not yet set off, can not walk, which can not be blamed on a certain Yan, can only blame the open rubber Gonzales, affecting her little motor running, a leather strap bundled snapping soles, so cheerful.
Qiong Darshan although not high altitude, temper is not small, that the weather said to change, wind and rain throwing hail, but also more than usual, now look at the weather is very good, but who knows it.
The more you go up, the less vegetation, but the stream is not less, look around the snowy mountains also melted almost, where this water comes from, rushing, nature, really wonderful ah!
The students in front of us have disappeared, and the team next door is not losing us, slowly disappearing from view, an open gum shoes, cracking a big smile, while the other also big brother wants to open the gum, the leather band is not enough to use it la, be good ha 。。。。。。
From afar, the mountains are colored, and close to hear the sound of water, slowly move, but fortunately the altitude is not high, but also relaxed, walking, stopping, taking pictures, slow down.
The stones that rely on each other, rely on each other for hundreds of millions of years, rely on the sea to dry up the stone, rely on the sky to the end of the earth.
Face to face with a flowering cow, another four words, two cows look at each other.
(onom.) rapid breathing
Today changed into hiking shoes, stepping on the gravel, much more comfortable, but the stone is also too stone.
Limping tow-team swallows, huffing and puffing.
Free-range horses, humming and hawing.
The tireless stream, Guru Guru Guru.
The snow-capped mountains in the distance, blazing white blazing white.
Drag team Yan did not want to go, if not the river rocks are too big and very sharp, she wants to roll on the ground, yes, she misses her mother!
Mom, come and help me! Mom can't help you, but the horses can help!
12:49 A small slope
It is Darshan not the pass
I hailed the curry, where are we, and said we are almost at the foot of Darshan. I did not come back to my senses for a while, where is Darshan?
The slope that you can't stop looking at, and the clouds in the sky that you can touch with your hand.
Looking back, no one can be seen, is melting with the stone, 1:00 p.m. more, or solve a life event and then go, go a little easier will.
The horse gang also followed, four feet, is faster than two feet to go, the horse is also tired, is also huffing and puffing.
13:39 At the foot of Jundasaka
Stopping is to go further
Qiong Darshan is close by, I paged the curry again, he said do you see us, we are in the middle of Darshan. What can I say, I am nearsighted, not clairvoyant, besides, my eyes in only countless more rocks, gray white pink green red 。。。。。。
A tip on the side, the tip also shivered.
A flat section of road, a circle of walls of the same mountain, Darshan is hidden there, without a word.
Finally arrived at the foot of Darshan, this Z-shaped gravel road, can not see the end ah.
The walkie-talkie came from the friendly tip of the curry, Darshan wind is very big, very cold, everyone on the down, on the punching bag, pay attention to keep warm, prevent loss of temperature, good boss!
Z-shaped uphill, you can only use the Z-shaped solution, walk a stroke, rest five strokes, I let you five hundred meters.
In this way, a lump sum, walking and stopping, the beautiful name is to stop, in order to go farther. I believe it, but, how long to stop to go farther, this soul torture.
Talking, Z-shaped is about to finish, suddenly the sky floated a cloud, not five words, the rain said to come, I should take the raincoat, should not take it?
The wind is getting bigger and bigger, the rain is hitting my face and hurting, the temperature is whooshing, I don't know how much it has dropped, I just know I can't grab the hiking poles anymore to, this won't start to get cold, right?
A certain Yan stopped, this time stopping not to go farther, she pulled out the rain coat snow cover, but also checked a thick rubber band, busy tying the soles of shoes.
I stood in the midst of the storm, and I missed my mom too.
It was so cold that I walked on with the wind, and when I reached the last Z, the rain stopped.
From this sheep's head to Darshan, it is estimated that it is less than 100 meters, victory is in sight!
A certain swallow slowly came over , the raincoat was blown by the wind, became huge, like a star alien, a face full of bitter aliens.
The last meter, go! You can go far without stopping!
Jondakan, no jondakan, just hideous rocks, the wind is still very big, I have this one hundred and forty pounds are going to be blown away like.
Aliens also came up, quite good aliens, fortunately she had an open rubber shoe, otherwise it would fly.
Punch a card, withdraw it, the wind will blow away the temperature, will blow the hair, will blow the original is not much intelligence also blew away.
Look at the front of the Darshan, that is called a heroic masculine cur!
There are also humming two generals.
A wonderful painting surrounded by snow-capped mountains
Spent an hour, over the Qiong Dasang, hailed the troops ahead, they have been resting for a while in the mid-mountain that, ready to eat lunch, yes, lunch at 3 pm, and I, the collection team teeth, surprisingly do not know what the hell is lunch.
Can't see where they are, the walkie-talkie to determine the direction, down the road, far away from the snowy mountains is very beautiful, a certain Yan back and forth to shoot the video eight times, still too beautiful enough, raw material models on that, but also to shoot flowers.
The cliff in the distance, a horse and a man, there is a kind of sheer dominance! It turned out that he was the horse captain of the next team, the team members to go not the established road, he was there to call them back, but also let us not go this way, pull out the map to see, hey, this side can also go, that or to follow the troops ahead, we go to the rendezvous.
Under the darshan, the sun is brighter and warmer, the terrible darshan, it really kills people.
I let you 500 meters
The kids have already eaten and packed almost, boiled hot water for us, this time what mountain and sea food can not compare to this pot of hot water ah, too moved.
I pulled out the treasured dried mixed noodles for many days, and a certain Yan soaked up her cherished noodles, 4 p.m. is also lunch, eat and drink well, which will have to leave again, the little ones wait too long.
Next, it is a long downhill, almost 8 kilometers, when you see a red flag flying hut, and then go half an hour to arrive, the goal is clear, continue to go!
The hills on both sides were sharp and steep, and we followed the middle horse trail slowly, occasionally crossing gullies and hills.
Drag team Yan has resurrected, downhill is her strong point, although every time I have to let her 500 meters.
This time the front and back of the team did not pull too far away, are within sight, on the pleasant scenery down the mountain, gourmet feast ah.
Looking back at Jondalaka, this will be breezy, gentle as the little sister next door, I really want to beat her up.
The open rubber shoes have been worn to lose N rubber bands, there is really no way, replaced with the backcountry shoes, downhill strength is instantly pulled crotch again.
The canyon slowly became narrow from wide, is a huge V-neck, the stream also became turbulent, mixed with the whistling mountain wind, the sun is very harsh, the back of the sun hand a little pain.
A section of the cliff road, curry remind everyone to be careful, such a leader, very relieved na, begging for back.
The cliff side of a simple wire fence, it should be used to prevent sheep from falling, anyway, carefully through the road is quite wide, not that cliff feeling.
Can see the snowy mountains again, do not know how far away from us, feel a lifetime can not walk, but there feel within reach, this may be the pie effect.
Ahead of a fork in the road, the curry said a horse that was framed by wood a little ahead, I trotted all the way, trying to catch up with Pig and Xie total. Waiting for me to seal the horse, they have gone toward the chai chai, a few people in front of them sitting on the grass to rest.
Xie always came a wazi, we four can not walk the road, downhill fee body, and do not know how far.
Stall a while, stall a while, I can only stall a while, they still have the body concave shape.
18:02 The house with the red flag flying
Already started to doubt life
Going downhill is really a big miserable thing in life. By this time, you are already a little tired of the surrounding scenery, right, so that's why you feel tired.
Rushing rushing, Yingzi several rushed to the front, to grab the feng shui treasure, we a few on the move ah move.
Passing by the house with red flags flying, I wish the camp was set up here.
To the camp, it is almost seven o'clock in the evening, three teams are converging here, crowded can not be crowded, crowded is not healthy, talking in your sleep will be heard away.
The tent is pitched at the edge of the creek, which must not rain at night, or the creek accidentally stormed up, we can all have to pay, really is not an ideal camp, but think the red flag flying huts more appropriate.
Mountain hollow, the sun early in the day, the temperature drops quickly, the stream is cold, in the stream bubble feet, to cool the feet, is also very comfortable.
Everyone is tired, the hastily cooked a mixed noodles, do not want to do more struggle, just want to go to bed early, 11 o'clock on the sleep, can not really imagine.
Today, the whole 16 kilometers, about 10 hours, two days accumulated 31 kilometers, a little powerful there is no, to give themselves plus leg of lamb!
