Ganal Shakers: The Little Secret of Kamchatka
Michael Kostyrya, director of the Kamchatka House of Children and Youth Tourism and Excursions
Every year, at the beginning of summer, traditional mountaineering gatherings take place at the Hanal Washbands. Them conducts the Kamchatka Federation of mountaineering and rock-climbing. After visiting for the first time in this region, Mikhail Kostyrya, the director of the Kamchatka Children's and Youth Tourism and excursions house together with colleagues decided to organize a tracking. Their goal was to develop a hiking trail around the Ganal Shakers for untrained tourists. "Ganal shakers are a very small part of the ridge, but it is so picturesque and interesting that I had a desire to explore its possibilities for trekking routes. A fleeting glance from above is enough to fall in love with this place, "Kostyrya commented.
2 September a group of 3 people came to the base camp of climbers, which is located at the foot of the Hanal shakers, from where they started their route. Tourists spent a week on the route.
The Ganal Range is a whole tourist area. Due to its remoteness and not mastery, it does not have any developed routes, which we are accustomed to seeing, for example, on Gorel volcano. At the same time, it is very promising from a tourist point of view. First of all, the ridge is of interest to climbers and climbers. This is one of the main areas in Kamchatka, where the most complex mountaineering routes are concentrated. Here they require good physical training and special, developed skills, as well as mountain gear and the ability to handle it. Because the mountains do not forgive frivolity towards them.
The Hanal Range likes to "test" its guests and sharp weather changes. For half an hour the heat under + 25С can be replaced by a dank fog or even snow. In addition, local weather phenomena are often formed in this area, which is interesting to watch from outside, and it is unpleasant to get under such a "natural wonder". "The wall of fog, which you saw a minute before, far below, in the valley, unexpectedly quickly approaches you, looms over you, and then covers the surrounding landscape. The world changes instantly: habitual landmarks disappear, it becomes cold and gloomy. A minute ago everything was clear and clear, and now you are no longer sure of the chosen direction of the movement, not even in your understanding of where you are, "says Kostyria.
During the 6-7 days, the group almost succeeded in closing the ring around the jockeys, but coming out of the last valley, they came upon a rock wall. There was no passage. It was necessary to return back, and to the end point the group returned, having overcome a long way. "The trip was not quite what we expected. I thought that the relief would be easier. When you look down on these valleys, passes - everything seems very clear and elementary. In fact - this is a whole world in which there are a variety of microlandscapes. "
The Hanal Range is a wild, virgin and fragile place. It is very important to keep it. Save this small secret of Kamchatka, which exists in the stories of those climbers who were fortunate enough to visit it.
