PROJEKT 100 WULKANÓW – wulkany Ameryki Środkowej 2018
  • niedziela, 18 luty 2018 |
  • Opublikowano w Blog |

Skoro opublikował się ten wpis, znaczy że jestem już w Panamie, choć przed chwilą jeszcze byłem w Afryce. Rozpoczynam kolejną wyprawę w ramach PROJEKTU 100 WULKANÓW – Wulkany Ameryki Środkowej. Udało mi się ją wcisnąć pomiędzy inne wyjazdy.
Czasu mało, ale będzie intensywnie. Jeśli będę mógł, będę relacjonował co u mnie słychać na blogu. Ale jak zawsze, najważniejsze są cele wyprawy, a reszta nie ma znaczenia.
Pozdrawiam
Grzegorz
Nie tylko piękny to trekking, ale też bardzo zróżnicowany. W artykule skupię się na największych przyrodniczych atrakcjach w mojej subiektywnej ocenie. Wybrałem pięć. Równorzędnych.

1) SUBTROPIKALNY LAS z górskimi rzekami i wodospadami. Na trekkingu kilkukrotnie jest okazja, by go podziwiać. Przed Ghorepani. Pomiędzy: Ghorepani a Tadapani, Sinuwa a Doban oraz w okolicach Jhinu Danda. W jego wyższych partiach wiosną kwitną rododendrony (np. las rododendronowy w okolicach Poon Hill i Ghorepani), a niżej przez cały rok inne drzewa. Uprawia się tutaj banany i arbuzy. Aż trudno uwierzyć, że nad głowami sterczą zlodowacone szczyty.

2) POON HILL (3193m, z wieżą widokową 3210m). Słynny widok oferuje panoramę na Dhaulagiri Himal, i po drugiej stronie rzeki Kali Gandaki, na Annapurna Himal. Najlepiej widać Dhaulagiri I (8167m) i Annapurnę Południową (7219m). Dobrze także Annapurnę I (8091m), Nilgiri (do 7061m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Tukuche (6920m), Dhaulagiri II (7751m), Gurja (7193m). O świcie zwykle jest bezchmurne niebo, słońce zaczyna oświetlać szczyty, w tym dwa ośmiotysięczniki. Poon Hill to jeden z najwspanialszych himalajskich punktów widokowych, bardzo łatwo dostępny. Nad dużą miejscowością – Ghorepani. Ale nawet tam na górze, w chłodzie poranka, można sobie kupić ciepłą herbatę i podziwiać najwyższe góry świata.

W opisie trekkingu do Bazy pod Annapurną, który umieściłem w zakładce „artykuły”, wspomniałem o pierwszych zdobywcach Annapurny I. W tym miejscu zatem będzie o pierwszych zdobywcach Dhaulagiri I. Miało to miejsce w maju 1960 roku podczas wyprawy szwajcarskiej. Szczyt zdobyli: Kurt Diemberger, Peter Diener, Ernest Forrer, Albin Schelbert i nepalscy Szerpowie – Nawang Dorje, Nyima Dorje, a dziesięć dni później Michel Vaucher oraz Hugo Weber. Polacy pierwszy raz na szczycie stanęli dwadzieścia lat później, również w maju, w osobach Wojtka Kurtyki i Ludwika Wilczyńskiego.

3) MODI KHOLA – GÓRNA CZĘŚĆ DOLINY. Od turystycznej osady Himalaya do Południowego Lodowca Annapurny. Wąska, skalista, z wodospadami. Wyżej lodowce i piękne skalne wierzchołki. Po bokach do blisko 7000m a na horyzoncie nawet do 7500m (Gangapurna 7454m, Annapurna III 7555m). Czuć tutaj prawdziwą wysokogórską atmosferę, a z rejonu Machapuchare Base Camp (ok. 3700m) rozpościera się niezapomniany widok na dolinę.

4) ODCINEK MACHAPUCHARE BASE CAMP – ANNAPURNA BASE CAMP. Krótki, po skręceniu w lewo z doliny Modi Khola. Sedno trekkingu. Za plecami dostojnie prezentuje się święta góra Nepalczyków - Machapuchare (6993m), na którą nie wolno się wspinać. Po lewej masyw Hiunchuli, po prawej morena Południowego Lodowca Annapurny, za nim Tharpu Chuli (5695m) i Singu Chuli (6501m), a dalej rejon Tare Kang (Glacier Dome, 7069-7140m). Z przodu upragniona Baza pod Annapurną (4130m). Nazwa: Południowe Sanktuarium Annapurny wynika nie tylko z położenia, ale także z rozłożenia szczytów. Jak w teatrze stojąc na scenie i patrząc na widownię. Tuż pod nogami jest potężny Południowy Lodowiec oraz czorteny modlitewne, w tym ofiar Annapurny. A po bokach szczyty od Annapurny Południowej, poprzez Bharha Chuli (7647m), Annapurna I (8091m, od drugiej strony względem Poon Hill), po Roc Noir (7485m). Tutaj czuć potęgę gór i widać ich nieskazitelne piękno.

5) JHINU DANDA HOT SPRINGS – czyli gorące źródła. Bez nich, byłaby to turystyczna wioska jakich wiele. Lecz niedaleko, przy korycie Modi Khola, tryskają termalne źródła i utworzono tu niewielkie kąpielisko. W którym można posiedzieć i odpocząć. Obok głośno szumi wspomniana lodowcowa rzeka, po bokach rośnie gęsty las. Nie widać stąd cywilizacji. Odwiedziny tego miejsca mogą być wspaniałym zwieńczeniem trekkingu do Bazy pod Annapurną dla jednych, początkiem trekkingu, dla drugich.

W dziale artykuły można znaleźć więcej informacji o trekkingu.

Na zdjęciach przykładowe zdjęcia z kilku wyjazdów.

Regularnie jestem pytany, czy kolejne przejście tego samego trekkingu mnie nie nudzi? Mógłbym odpowiedzieć – to moja praca. Ale nie, nie nudzi. A jak zacznie, wybiorę inne trekkingi. Ich nie brakuje. Wielokrotne pokonywanie tych samych tras ma swoje plusy. Za każdym razem dostrzegam nowe rzeczy, pogłębiam swoje obserwacje. Widzę jak zmienia się dany fragment – w tym wypadku – Nepalu. Jak cofają się lodowce, jaka na przestrzeni lat jest pogoda, temperatura. A gdy mogę przy okazji pokazać komuś fajny kawałek świata, to sprawia mi to radość.

Na blogu piszę głównie o wulkanach, chociaż materiałów z niewulkanicznych wyjazdów są terabajty. Niewykorzystane. Kolejne terabajty materiałów, które nie ujrzały nigdy światła dziennego, dotyczą samych wulkanów. Powód prozaiczny - brak czasu, którego nie da się rozciągnąć.

Ale w ramach odskoczni od wulkanicznych tematów, dzisiaj parę zdań o bardzo fajnym trekkingu wokół Manaslu. Ósma góra świata, nosząca też nazwę Kutang, co w tybetańskim nawiązuje do płaskiego miejsca jakie jest pod szczytem. Ten płaskowyż jest charakterystyczny dla Manaslu i rozegrała się tam niejedna górska tragedia. Górę zwano też Peakiem XXX, a obecna nazwa w starym indyjskim języku oznacza Góra Ducha. Najczęściej podaje się wysokość 8156-8157m. Manaslu jest pomiędzy Dhaulagiri 8167m a Nanga Parbat 8126m. Całe pasmo górskie jest wyraźnie wyodrębnione od sąsiednich – Annapurna Himal, Himlung Himal, Kutang Himal i Ganesh Himal.

Atutem trekkingu wokół Manaslu jest niewielka liczba turystów, jeszcze, i przyzwoite warunki pobytowo-noclegowe, już. Kiedyś chodziło się tutaj z namiotami. Piechur ma też poczucie, że znalazł się w sercu gór, daleko od cywilizacji, a to nawet w Himalajach coraz trudniejsze.

Można podziwiać Manaslu z dwóch stron. Najsłynniejsze widoki są z Lho (z klasztorem buddyjskim na pierwszym tle), z okolic Samagaon i z Bimtang.

Atrakcjami są wioski tybetańskich ludów, wodospady, lodowcowe jezioro Birendra, do którego obrywają się kawałki lodowca Manaslu. Wielokrotnie przechodzi się mostami nad rzekami lodowcowymi jak Budhi Gandaki Nadi i Marsyangdi Nadi. Ich doliny raz są wąskie, skaliste, innym razem szerokie, oferujące efektowną panoramę Himalajów.

Niżej można obserwować uprawy ryżu i bananów, wyżej jęczmienia i kukurydzy. Wiosną napotkamy kwitnące rododendrony, a jesienią kwitną inne gatunki drzew. Trafiają się drzewa limonkowe i z pomidorami drzewnymi. Rosną tu też jabłka. A z warzyw uprawia się między innymi paprykę, kapustę czy ziemniaki.

Najwyższym punktem trekkingu jest przełęcz Larke (Larkya La/Bhanjyang – te ostatnie słowa po nepalsku i tybetańsku oznaczają - przełęcz). Choć dane co do wysokości podaje się różne, to najwyższe fragmenty na ścieżce są na wysokości 5145-5165m n.p.m. A ten kluczowy punkt jest w innym miejscu niż tablica informacyjna i ogromne ilości flag modlitewnych. Kawałek dalej. Przełęcz jest szeroka i płaska. Po bokach są zlodowacone 6-tysięczniki, między innymi pasma Larke Himal, które przytulone jest do Manaslu. Z drugiej strony jest grupa górska Himlung, w części najbliżej przełęczy zwana Pawar Himal. Wędrówka w tym rejonie biegnie morenami, po bokach są niewielkie lodowce, a schodząc mocno w dół z przełęczy, rozciąga się piękna panorama na fragment Annapurna Himal.

Cały trekking od Arughat do Besi Sahar zajmuje około dwa tygodnie, a powolne zdobywanie wysokości ma zbawienny wpływ na proces aklimatyzacji.

Najlepsze miesiące na jego realizację to kwiecień, maj, październik, listopad, choć tak naprawdę może być to trekking całoroczny. Z najmniej przyjaznym okresem pomiędzy połową grudnia a połową lutego. Śnieg, mróz, wiatr i nieprzetarta ścieżka mogą wtedy sprawić trudności. Ale jeśli ktoś chodzi w zimie po wyższych partiach polskich gór, nie będzie zaskoczony warunkami. Dodatkowym utrudnieniem będzie oczywiście wysokość.

Trekking wokół Manaslu można sobie urozmaicić odbiciami do Doliny Tsum, albo do bazy pod Manaslu czy na którąś z tybetańskich pięciotysięcznych przełęczy. Poprawi to proces aklimatyzacji i dostarczy wspaniałych wysokogórskich przeżyć.

Na koniec wypada wspomnieć o pierwszych zdobywcach Manaslu 8156m. Od początku bardzo chcieli go zdobyć Japończycy, próbowali kilka razy, aż na początku maja 1956 roku na szczycie stanęli: Toshio Imanishi (Japończyk) i Gyaltsen Norbu (Nepalczyk, Szerpa). Od strony lodowca Manaslu i wioski Samagaon. Polacy na szczycie zameldowali się w 1984 roku, ale było to pierwsze zimowe wejście (pierwsza połowa stycznia). Dokonali tego Maciej Berbeka i Ryszard Gajewski.

The project of 100 volcanoes is also a supplementary table, in which after 2017 there are 105 items, although if they were written down in great detail, there would be a thousand more. Exploration of some of them was extremely difficult and dangerous. The thirteenth year of the project is ahead of me.

12 years of the 100 VOLCANOES PROJECT behind me. It required great determination and great consequence. There were great moments, but also extremely dangerous moments. To show the current achievements of the project, I start from the MAIN TABLE. Under the table, a portion of pictures from 2017. After so many years there are several hundred thousand of them. Ahead of me another dozen years of volcanic exploration.

1 – heights given are often according to the indications GPS, rather than encyclopaedic informations;
2 – the project includes volcanoes climbed and explored only since 2006 - the beginning of the Project 100 Volcanoes. Although some volcanoes, such as Mount Elbrus, were reached prior to the start of the project. In this case, I had to get it again to include the project;
