騎馬遊火山

位於菲律賓馬尼拉南面的大雅台,有全世界最迷你、海拔最低、只有295米高的活火山——塔爾火山。火山位於塔爾湖的中央,必須坐船方可到達,您可以嘗試乘坐菲律賓的特色螃蟹船前往。來到塔爾火山必定要參與一個與別不同、在其他火山絕無僅有的活動:騎馬遊火山。

一般騎馬的初學者都是在平地上嘗試,要在崎嶇不平的山路騎馬並不容易,極具挑戰性,不少遊客更是第一次騎馬,然而各位可以放心,因為整個過程都會有馬伕相伴,相對安全。走在顛簸和充滿碎石的陡峭泥坡時,這些識途老馬都懂得盡量平衡,沿途更不時可看見地表上的岩石細縫中冒出硫磺氣,彷彿潛藏著一隻蠢蠢欲動的野獸。

費了一番功夫,爬山涉水,最終到達頂峰——壯闊的塔爾火山口。火山口长25公里,寬15公里,面積約300平方公里。神奇的是,這個活火山自1572年以來已爆發33次,流岩形成岸堤,火山口因囤積雨水而成了火山口湖,甚至當中還有座更小的火山。由於塔爾火山本身已在湖中央,所以這個火山口湖實為湖中湖,非常特別。這裡山中有山,湖中有湖,构成“母子”火山,是大自然的一大奇迹。您可以騎馬繞湖,或在觀景台欣賞寧靜碧藍的湖景,頓時忘卻世俗的紛擾。

Horse Riding at Volcanoes

Tagaytay, which locates on the south of Manila in the Philippines, has the world’s smallest active volcano named Taal Volcano (295 m high). A special banca boat is indispensable to reach this volcano in the middle of Taal Lake.

Rent a lovable horse and participate in the unique tour once you arrive at the volcano.
Beginners usually try out their horses on the flat land since it is not easy to ride on the rugged mountain road. Don’t worry about the challenging riding as you will be accompanied by a local stableman during the whole process. While walking on bumpy and steep mud slopes, these horses always try to keep the balance. Along the way, you may note the sulphur gas that emerges from the rocks’ cracks as if there is a beast ready to show up.

Finally, you reach the magnificent crater of Taal Volcano after riding along time. The crater is 25 km long and 15 km wide with an area of about 300 sq. km. Miraculously, this active volcano has erupted 33 times since 1572 and led to the formations of river rocks. The Crater Lake exists as a result of accumulated rainwater, which creates a fantastic miracle as Taal Volcano itself is already in the middle of a lake. Inside the lake is a smaller volcano. You can either ride a horse around the lake, or enjoy the tranquil blue lake view from the observation deck and understand those small worldly disturbances are insignificant.


飛天遁地

另一個火山熱點是南韓濟州島的休火山漢拿山。漢拿山在2007年被列為世界自然遺產。它位於濟州島的中央,海拔1,950米,是南韓境內最高的山。山頂上有約25,000年前因火山爆發而形成直徑達500米的火山湖白鹿潭,周圍有360多個大大小小因火山爆發形成的小火山。

現時漢拿山已被開發為國家公園,這裡四季風景分明,春夏漫山遍野都是紫色杜鵑花,秋天可欣賞紅楓和冷杉,冬季則白雪皚皚,吸引大量愛好探險歷奇和極限運動的人士。登山客可循5條登山路線上山,以到達白鹿潭為登頂。火山熔岩讓這裡的石塊像燒過的黑焦般呈現,而漢拿山的特色路徑就是架高枕木以火山岩為基石鞏固,不過只是在危險的地方才修建了枕木鋪層的階梯步道,其他地方都保留了怪石嶙峋的山體原貌,因此有些路段非常陡峭,需要攀爬。爬到火山口,風光無限,濟州全島盡收眼底。

來到濟州島還可以在山頂體驗刺激的滑翔傘,在空中盡情翱翔一番,給這次旅行增色。不過要注意濟州島的滑翔傘體驗地點將根據天氣、風向而變,因此出發前必須向滑翔體驗場查詢。在附近一個長滿松樹林的火山丘上,參加者會先接受專門的教導和練習,並在地上練習滑翔以及在低空嘗試飛行,之後就有教練陪伴作二人飛行,讓您體驗滑翔於濟州長空的快感,並且從另一角度欣賞如此雄偉的漢拿山全景。

The Majestic Hallasan

Another volcanic hot spot is Hallasan, a dormant volcano at the centre of Jeju Island in South Korea. Listed as a World Natural Heritage in 2007,Hallasan is the highest mountain in South Korea with an altitude of 1,950 m.

On the top of the mountain, a volcanic lake named Bakrokdam with around 500 m in diameter and more than 360 parasitic volcanoes were formed due to volcanic eruptions about 25,000 years ago.

Developed as a national park, Hallasan embodies purple azaleas in spring and summer while the red maples decorate the fall, and the snowy winters attract numerous lovers of adventures and extreme sports. Climbers can goup the mountain by picking among the 5 hiking trails to reach the summit, Bakrokdam. The hiking trails of Hallasan preserve the original appearance of the rough black volcanic rocks and some dangerous parts have used wooden planks. On the crater, you will get a panoramic view of the entire Jeju island.

On top of the mountain, the exciting paragliding is offered according to the weather and wind direction. Make sure you have checked the availability with the paragliding centre beforehand. On a hill nearby filled with pines,participants may first receive professional instructions, practice gliding on the ground or at low altitudes. Then, an experienced coach will accompany with you to experience the pleasure of paragliding while enjoying the majestic view of Hallasan from a new angle.
