English Narrative

29-Aug-2009 -- 很久之前就想去这个点了,原因很简单:他在浑善达克沙漠的北侧,阿巴嘎旗的旁边。正好可以在越野的时候顺便就搞定了。

但冬天穿越浑善的时候,只到了查干淖尔附近,朋友没有兴趣,只好折返了。

这次特地安排在夏季穿越浑善,看看丰美的草场。正好老尼也是个闲人,大家兴趣相当,这个点基本上就是探囊取物了。

两天穿越浑善达克沙地很爽,在查干淖尔附近送走时间紧迫的队友,两个车一路向本,直插阿巴嘎。正在修路,但是便道非常好,一路景色也不错。到达阿巴嘎附近,沿公路继续追近N44E115,点距离公路的距离最近一直到1.1km左右,被铁丝网拦住,于是三个人一条狗步行下车找点。在这样的草原上找点绝对是一种享受。

中间穿越了一道铁丝网,几条小路:其实可以开车从边上绕过来的。我们把铁丝网拉开一个小缝,让哈里钻过去,它过去之后高兴的直跳,以为自己完成了一个高难度的马戏团动作。没有任何难度,我们就在一片大草原上找到了这个点,不远处是一个小湖,在夕阳的照射下像是镶嵌在草原上的一块碧玉。老尼出来的时候忘记带水,他的爱犬哈里渴坏了,于是抢了我们的饮用水。光线的角度正好,草原太漂亮了。几个闲人临时决定:去城里买些羊肉,回来露营,铁板烧烤。

运气很好,很快找到了阿巴嘎一个很大的菜市场,让老板把一整只羊腿给我们切了下来,两个车绕过铁丝网,直奔交汇点露营。天气非常漂亮,气温也很舒服。帐篷四周很快弥漫着烤羊的香味,新鲜的羊还是要比冷冻的羊肉好吃很多。

吃饱喝足之后,躺在帐篷里想:明天要不要继续向北,找一下各点,并穿越到边境呢?

结论显而易见:既然是闲人,那就一路向北,去蒙古国边境看看吧。

English Narrative

29-Aug-2009 -- We have longed for this confluence point,since it's nearby Hun Shan Desert,the Offroad Paradise for Beijing 4x4 fans.

Last winter, we are near this point, but our friends were not interested in confluence point, so we turn back to Beijing disappointed. This time, our team are all confluence hunter and all of us have enough time.

After two days across Hun Shan desert, we reached A Ba Ga Qi, a district capital nearby the point. Along the highway, our jeep is only 1.1km from the point. Do not want to disturb the silence of grassland, our team (apple, woodhead, nelson and his dog Hali) begin walk to the confluence point and enjoy the scene along with us.

It's quite easy, we reached the point at 17:20. It's much more beautiful than we can describe, so we decided to buy some lamb from A Ba Ga Qi, and back to camping here. Luckily, we have a full fresh lamb leg from butcher's shop. We drive back to the point. Shortly after tent was set, their is sweet lamb smell around our camping site.

After we finished the leg (and Hali is also very satisfied with the fat and leg bone), we decided to go to the north point tomorrow: time is not the problem, and the weather is perfect.
