徒步第十一天 - 零度    Day 43

The day after the big snow fall was a beautiful day. Low temperature but plenty of sun. Crossing a suspension bridge is particularly hard in this kind of weather, as part of the snow has frozen to become ice making the path slippery. Moreover, poles can't be used because there are holes and gaps.

It took a long time to cross this bridge but the view of the snow-covered river down below and the snow-capped mountains afar simply make all hardships worth the
while!

I lost track whether this is annapurna II or III. They all look marvellous....

10月17日 Ghunsang -> Churi Ledar (4200m)

今天天清氣朗,冬陽高照,遠近白雪皚皚,是徒步的最好時節。雖然行走在海拔四千米,但我已在西藏耽了一個月,高原適應得不錯,因此走起路來倒也輕鬆。地上積雪約半尺厚,不過趕路的客旅已踏出一條路徑來,雪被前行者踩踏成冰,路雖平卻不易走。除了腳下路徑外,四處仍然鋪滿白雪,太陽射在身上挺和暖的,我的心情大佳,一路行一路哼著羅文唱的楚留香主題曲“笑踏河山”,詞曰:

對酒狂歌,一劍獨往,何愁露寒侵鬢
人生百感,輕舟掠過,萬里白雪洗我心

今天7:45am出發,不到中午便到達Churi Ledar 。Ledar 海拔4200米,放在西藏的話不算高,大概是拉孜的高度吧,但溫度卻比拉孜低很多。九月中時在拉孜過了一晚,挺暖和的,我想十月中也不會冷得太過份,但在緯度更接近赤道的Ledar,日頭收了後真是冷得要命啊,最可憐的是山上旅館俱無取暖設備,相對來說最暖的地方是廚房的火灶旁。在等候晚飯時,我在飯堂簡 直坐不住,便躲到廚房,把剛燒開水的大水煲抱在懷裡。

半夜起來查看室內溫度,攝氏0度。
