雪寶鼎三日騎馬遊 / Horse riding to Shar Dung Ri Mountain (1)

Day 1—紮營/Camping

100830 雪寶頂 002下了一晚上的大雨,到早上八點還沒停,心裏猶豫著要不要延期。

九點集合時,還飄著小雨,但是郭老闆信誓旦旦的説一定會停的(其實就算不停他大概也把遊客打包上馬,錢已經交了,還能如何呢?)。算他運氣好,等馬導上好行李,雨竟然也停了。

It had been raining the whole night until 9am this morning, so I was really hesitating whether I should postpone the trip. Fortunately the rain stopped right after they loaded the luggage onto the horses.

今天出發的有兩團人。我加上兩個英國小孩是三日雪山行,另外有四個歐洲人是一日寺廟行。

我們運氣真的不錯,啓程之後一路都沒下雨。經過尼泊爾的震撼教育之後,騎馬似乎小菜一碟。同行的兩個二十出頭的小孩狀況也很好,兩個年輕人就拎了個小背包,穿著薄薄的褲子,像到自家門前散步一般。

A couple from UK and myself were for the 3-day mountain trip while some Germans going for the 1 day monastery trip. We left the town together and then the two groups went separate ways in the mountain. We are pretty lucky that it did not rain at all after we took off.

這裏雖然和幕思唐一樣,海拔3500-4000米高,但是風貌完全不同,一乾一濕,滿山樹木野花。這裏也産幕思唐常見的果汁來源的同類植物——沙棘,不過松潘沒看到鮮榨的果汁,都是超市瓶裝或沖泡用顆粒袋裝的。路邊正好有許多結滿黃橙橙果實的沙棘樹,讓我終於一睹廬山真面目。
The altitude is between 3500-4000 meters high, similar to Mustang, but much more humid with rich forest and grassland. There is also some berries probably in the same family of sea buckthorn which they made canned juice for sell in the supermarket.

翻過一座山後,我們下馬步行下山,來到一個藏族小村。因爲之前下雨,山路泥濘不堪,村口立了一塊牌子,叫做“上泥巴村”,不覺莞爾,因爲我們每人的鞋子都沾滿了泥巴。
After walking down a muddy trail with shoes completely covered by mud, we passed by a small Tibetan village in the valley. The village’s name is “Upper Mud Village”, very expressive. Though the village is small, they have beautiful prayer wheels along the road.

村子路上就有數個大型轉經輪,藏族信仰虔誠,再小的地方都有風馬旗飄揚,佛塔轉經輪竪立,以及瑪尼聲迴盪。

這裏的屋子蓋有高高翹起的屋檐,很有泰緬風格,連轉經輪上也搭個飛簷屋頂。還有一個特點就是家家戶戶都有養小黑豬。

一點半左右就到達營地。我們運氣真的很好,在附近轉轉,玩玩水,烤了一會兒火後,才又下起小雨。
We reached the camping site at about 13:30. Only after we settled down and explored around, it started raining again while we comfortably sitting by the fire.

馬幫的人可忙著。卸行李(馬兒一卸下馬鞍就在地上打滾,是它們對付背癢的方式),幫馬兒剪鬃毛,做飯,餵馬——把蠶豆泡開水泡軟後,放在剪開的足球裏,套在馬脖子上,超有創意的餵馬道具。
The tour guides were busy unloading the stuff (luggage, food, camps, cookware…they had to bring everything each time). Horse feeding is quite interesting. They soaked beans in hot water and fed the softened beans to horses inside a ball hang on horse necks.

100830 雪寶頂 257這匹馬是最好吃也最聰明的。別的馬忙著吃草時,它却老站在我們的主營前面,眼巴巴的看著導遊們堆在地上的黃瓜蔬果等食材,然後悄悄走近啃兩口。被駡了,就退幾步低頭假裝在吃草,其實地上哪有草,只是假裝一下再慢慢走近偸吃東西。沒有東西吃時,就一副超可憐的臉看著我們。。
This is the cutest horse. It always stood in front of the main tent with a super innocent look, eyeing at the vegetables and attempting to grab some bites when the guides were not looking.

到了四點多,早我們一天出發的三個法國人從雪寳鼎回來。他們蠻慘的,因爲上午下雨,雲層厚重,所以上山冷得半死但是什麼也沒看到。

晚餐吃的很好,有花菜、蒜苔、缸豆三個菜和米飯。英國人說很驚訝,因爲旅遊書上記載馬幫的食物很糟。我特別高興全是素菜。昨天在松潘閑逛時,肉攤就擺在路邊,已經一路乾嘔了(這是從小就有的毛病,近不得生肉)。經過一堵高墻時,已經沒見到牛頭、大塊肉的景象,但是乾嘔得更厲害,到那個地方的門口看到門牌時,才知道是不小心路過松潘的屠宰場。裏面有兩個足球場大,下午是空蕩蕩,但地上還見血迹,看到這種地方會讓人無法不面對自己的殘忍,爲了滿足口腹之慾而讓其它生命極其痛苦。所以,在還保有這小小慈悲心的時期內,想儘量吃素,而馬隊竟然一點肉都沒有帶上來,正合我意。
Dinner was warm and delicious: 3 vegetable dishes with rice. Our guides and the guides arriving one day before us jointly cooked the dinner for the two groups. The French group went for the ice mountain today but because of the weather, they were freezing up there and did not see anything.

晚上我自己一個帳篷,兩個英國人一個帳篷。寢具方面,馬隊準備的也很充分,有一個防水的泡棉墊、一個毯子、一個睡袋、一條棉被、最上面蓋了一件暖暖的內部覆絨外部稍防水的藏袍。我很怕冷,所以穿了毛衣再加上自己帶的羽絨睡袋,溫暖的睡了一晚;什麼都沒帶的老外説他們睡得也很好。
Since there is no electricity here, we all went to bed super early in the evening, i.e. 8pm!We tourists stayed in individual small tents while the guides stayed together in the main tent. A real pity that it was cloudy during my two nights there, otherwise it would be a perfect place to watch stars.
