Top of the Mountain

July 7, 2015

Stāsti, piedzīvojumi un cilvēki mainās, kalni paliek. Vieta, kas parāda cik niecīgs esi tu un tavas problēmas.

Caur sauli, miglu, sniegu zem kājām un sniegpārslām no debesīm, ceļā no Slovākijas puses ciemata Štrbské pleso uz Rysy (2,503 m, augstākā Tatru kalnu virsotne, kur var uzkāpt neesot alpīnists) virsotni caur kalnu namiņu Chata pod Rysmi (kur paēst zupu, izdzert karsto šokolādi, samīļot kalnu kaķi un aiziet uz pasaules episkāko sirsniņ-namiņu ar stikla sienu uz kalnu ieleju) un lejup pa Polijas puses taku līdz Morskie Oko ezeram, kas ar savu stāvumu, skarbumu, vēl nenokusušiem sniega laukiem un ķēžu takām pa klinšu kori uzlika varenu pārbaudījumu – vairāk gan garīgām, ne fiziskām spējām. Jo pie tām sajūtām aizmirstas, ka esi jau 10 h kāpis, ka soma ir smaga, ka neesi dzēris, kur nu vēl ēdis, jo prātā ir tikai viens – nenoripot lejā, un sekot katram savam solim. Raudāt nedrīkst. Pa nakti turpināt rāpošanu lejup un redzēt kalnu kazu barus, kurus apspīdināt ar galvas lukturīšiem, melnos un varenos kalnu siluetus un zvaigznes debesīs. Pēc 17 stundu gājiena, kāpšanas un rāpošanas, laimīgi uzsliet telti, saulei lecot, pamestajā Polijas un Slovākijas muitas robežkontroles punktā, un no rīta brokastot upītes malā, kamēr uz Tevi blenž, tikko no autobusa izripojis, latviešu tūristu bars ar fotoaparātiem.

Stories, adventures and persons changes, but mountains still stay. Place that makes you realize how tiny you and your problems are.

Through sun, mist, snow under feet and snowflakes from the sky, road to Rysy (2,503 m) – the highest peak in the Tatra Mountains that is accessible to non- alpinists. Starting from the Slovak side, at Štrbské pleso and passing Chata pod Rysmi, (to eat soup, drink hot chocolate, play with the mountain cat and visit an outhouse with a glass wall and a view to a valley) and climbing down to Polish side to the Morskie Oko lake, which is a harder and steeper route with chained trails and snow fields. Climbing until sunrise, watching mountains goats, dark mountain silhouettes and starry sky. After 17 hours of walking, climbing and crawling, camped happily at abandoned Polish and Slovak border control point, and the morning had breakfast at the edge of the river with a bus full of tourists staring at you and taking selfies with random views at parking place.
