新西兰爬山日记:北岛Te Aroha山步道(三)

新西兰北岛爬山日记: 2013年10月19号初稿,25号改编 Perry 十月的奥克兰,虽说是春暖花开的季节,但天气仍然变化无常。今天是我们第三次爬Te Aroha山, 不巧又是阴天,路上还遇到几场阵雨。记得第一次登上山时就是云山雾罩、一片迷茫,希望今天晴空万里,能见到无限风光。

新西兰爬山日记:北岛Te Aroha山步道(二)

新西兰北岛爬山日记: Te Aroha 山步道 05/10/2013 星期六 PERRY 这是我们第二次爬Te Aroha山,这次计划从它的东面距小镇大约7公里的入口开始。这里100多年前是个矿区,大部分步道是当时为开矿留下的,同时留下的还有一些设施如铁路,选矿站等。这里一共有三条平行的步道通往山上,我们计划从最右侧的步道Low Level Track开始并通过有些挑战的Kauri Grove Track最终爬上山顶,然后从左侧的另一条步道下山,预计大约6至7小时。

新西兰北岛爬山日记:Te Aroha山步道 早就听说Te Aroha山是Auckland附近最高的山,一直期待着"征服"它,上周六(2013年9月7号)终于付诸实践了。 出发前我仔细研究了地图,根据我们的体力和时间,我决定走一个完整的环绕步道,这是我最喜欢的方式。计划用5到6小时。由于预报当地下午有雨,我们必须在下午3点左右出山。虽说Te Aroha山海拔高度只有952米,但我们的起爬点在海拔十几米,加上坡度较陡,还是有一定难度的。
