English Narrative

05-Oct-2012 -- 昨天探寻了42°N 127°E,两点多坐火车到了松江河镇,这里是从长白山西坡看长白山主峰白头山天池的必经地。长白山天池也是中国最深的湖泊,水深平均204米,最深373米。下午在街上闲逛,联系旅行社,定了长白山天池一日游。

早上七点半在火车站坐车,一小时后到山门,再坐游览大巴行驶四十五分钟后到达开始登山的山脚下,从这到山顶有近1441级台阶。尽管山下阳光灿烂蓝天白云,而这山脚下却乌云压顶,寒风寒风凛冽,众人纷纷去租大衣。我用了半小时登顶,山顶更冷,空气透明度更差,完全看不到周边和湖水,只能说这次的运气不好。用GPS定位,离CP点有2.43公里。

没在山顶多停留,快速下山徒步去寻找CP。曾被一辆返回的大巴司机劝阻要求我上车,说不允许游客自己徒步下山,或许是这里太接近国境线了,我没有理采他的建议。

山坡上完全被很高的草覆盖,看不到地面。据说有水塘会被草覆盖,我十分小心地走着每一步。当行至距汇交点还有1.33公里时,GPS显示汇交点在山梁那边,由于靠近边境,周边过往的行人也很少,为了安全起见,我决定放弃再接近汇交点,拍照记录后,顺着盘山路沿途行摄下山,去第二个旅游点:大峡谷游览。

English Narrative

04-Oct-2012 -- Visited 42°N 127°E yesterday, train to Sōngjiānghé (松江河镇), along the way here view of the western flank of Chángbái Mountains, main peak Báitóushān (白头山), 2744 m high dormant volcano, about 3 km from the shore of its crater lake Báitóushān Tiānchí. Tiānchí is the deepest lake in China, the average water depth of 204 meters, the deepest 373 meters. Wandering the streets during the afternoon, contact a travel agent for Chángbáishān-Tiānchí day trips.

7:30 in the morning at the train station in car, one hour to reach the foot of the mountain to start climbing, sit in tour bus traveling 45 minutes later, nearly 1,441 steps to the top of the hill. Despite brilliant blue sky at the foot of the mountain, cold and windy on top, people have to rent coats. I spent half an hour on summit, it's cold, views are not good. GPS display 2.43 km from the CP point.

Head down the mountain on foot to look for the CP. A return bus driver has discouraged travel on foot, said visitors are not allowed to walk down the mountain, perhaps too close to the border, I have no reason to follow his advice.

Visibility is very bad, I walk very carefully. GPS shows the CP on the ridge side, close to the border; for safety reasons, I decide to give up to reach to CP, the GPS shows 1.33 kilometers to the CP
