The Life of the Valley of Sun

Life Sun Valley.

(author A. Trubachev)


Trekking, mountaineering and rock climbing in Peru

Grey clouds came from the east and hide behind the slanting rain bands close mountains, dark and gloomy now, and in the afternoon a blind eye shining snow-capped peaks and glaciers dangling on the slopes.

From somewhere came the piercing cold wind. Was chilly and uncomfortable. Evening veil dropped to Huaraz, strongly redeemed daily bright colors, raised the collar jackets from passers-by and even dispersed the crowd of schoolchildren, all day dragged through the streets of motley flags and huge thundering drums.

Rainy autumn May came to an end, sunny and dry winter was near the horizon. She was approaching from the east, was briefly detained somewhere in the mists of the Amazonian swamps, stretching from the foot of the mountains here, which offers a fantastic view from the roof of my hotel. The gentle slopes of the foothills of the peaks seem so close and accessible. A common mistake of the human eye - to judge the size of the object relative to its own size. Just can not be in the mountains assessment eyes to believe it all too eager to embrace attempts. Too large scale and immense for the human mind.

Trekking, mountaineering and rock climbing in Peru So, darkens in this mountain town quickly, the sun literally falls over the horizon and immediately begins the night with almost no twilight. One after another light sparks of stars scattered across the sky. That's slightly beveled on one side of the diamond five major stars appeared on the silver dust of the Milky Way - the Southern Cross before dawn will decorate the clear night sky.

The atmosphere of the evening reverie hung over the darkened streets of the town. Quickly cools the hot afternoon sun spiteful worn asphalt pavements and elegant space. Traders in colorful skirts and ornate hats collect items in a wide scarves, tie a knot at their breasts and leave their homes for a day place around the central square. Two carefree weekend passed, the city quieted down in anticipation of the hassles and worries of heavy work week.

Slim tune rattling guitar strings reaching for the tune, easily flowing in shimmering sonorous female voice, cheerful and carefree, as well as all the people of this earth, generous and harsh at the same time. One can not imagine this town without music. It is as if absorbed into the walls, in the coarse clay bricks fences, dusty flat roofs. Music everywhere - in the car, in the field, in the store, in the city center and all the suburbs. Smooth, sharp, bright, monotonous melody, senseless and simple, full of vitality and natural simplicity. Even at night, provoking unusual ear foreigner floats over the city of endless ringing tune.

Trekking, mountaineering and rock climbing in Peru in Moscow I have multiple drives in the car are - sometimes including - wonder why something is alive in our kind of music, ear cut annoying. And so it is not combined with a seething metropolis rhythm that even can not be tolerated, like a knife someone on the glass leads. And here is the music - life itself. Turn off this melody, muffling the strings and voice stopped - and everything goes out the tale shining mountain country, lost smiles with swarthy persons fade and full of malice views. That's just nothing will come of it. Music can not be removed from the life of a green valley, it does not stop the flow of the Rio Santa, which rushes in a narrow gorge rocks slightly below the city.

Such a life here. Hot sun during the day burns flat tops of low buildings, slender eucalyptus grove high on the mountain slopes are scattered specks saving shade, scraps of colored fields nurtured deadpan peasant dressed in costumes of the brightest colors and impossible, with the indispensable hat on top. And gentlemen - home eerie kind of clumsy and mud huts in scattered freely on the slopes of lean cows, concentrated and slowly backed up in the tiny village pubs.

Traditionally served for lunch of chicken soup in huge, unreal dish size, almost basins, and at least polkuritsy floats in this dish. Try not used to such portion of the coax, at least for a whole day of eating forget! Though, most likely, simply can not cope. Tasty, but too much. But here everything is so fed. Forces to need a lot of hard work, the air is oxygen rich, where else to take power, but in the food? And diets are exactly no one suffers! Look-ka you thick Peruvian. Hard you have to. No they are almost, but eating a bucket a day. And the calories do not believe ...

Noise in the deep valley of the Rio Santa, drink all this little world generous violent force of fertility in the tropics. And on top, indifferent and quiet, the bustle of the valley live look impassive guardians of the land, - the east - covered with snow, fantastic and inaccessible peaks of Cordillera Blanca, on the contrary, in the west - black rock peaks Cordillera Negra. That's for sure, for such patrons - as in Christ's bosom. And lives here Fun and Fancy Free narodec, singing songs, joyfully welcomed the guests and quite pleased with its simple, poor, but real and full life.

Trekking, mountaineering and rock climbing in Peru Once in a country where there is nothing like a usual situation of the Old World, at first did not you understand what happened. Lost landmarks and familiar fulcrum of consciousness. The situation baffled and destroys all learned the principles and rules. Constantly sounding music annoying, itchy ears and interferes with sleep. Sun pushes the hot top heavy load and instantly striking white skin burns cruel strangers.

The bounty of nature and people break the order of things, a constant and lasting way of life, mixes concepts unabashedly reaches into his eyes and ears, looks into his mouth .... But, oddly enough, the world is fast becoming his own, receives and opens strangers, not hiding and not off-putting.

Sounds strange, it is difficult to imagine a not experience for yourself. Understandable, because I write exclusively about their feelings, it is deeply personal and subjective. However, looking into people's eyes, only for a few days visiting this wonderful corner of the world, I find a reflection of their own emotions and experiences. And I see that these people are just amazed and fascinated by the simplicity and grace of life in this secluded and, in his own way, happy corner of the earth.

About that and write. And I want to share, and just give all in a row that he has received a gift, a pure and generous heart to the brim overflowing joy of life.

We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
