      Canopy Walkway in Kakum National Park - 19515619 - 心赏   加纳的新年是1月1号,一般要放3天假。为了适应当地习俗,老板决定提前庆祝我们的传统节日“春节”,可谓一箭双雕。假期里,为了丰富生活组织我们游览加纳三大名胜,每天一个。旅行前夕我们享用了地道的中国饺子,第二天凌晨4:00出发,开始了3天的梦幻之旅,第一个目的地便是卡库姆国家公园。
    

    该公园位于加纳南部地区的中部省,以建在雨林之上的“空中走廊”闻名于世。公园成立于1990年,占地面积350平方公里,从海岸角的北端一直延伸到艾尔米娜的小镇阿布拉夫附近。整个地区几乎全部被热带雨林覆盖。

    我们9:00左右抵达公园,买票后没有游览别处,直奔最有名的空中走廊而去。在入口处检验后,沿着一条木板铺成的小路径直来到山顶。山的一侧是深谷,谷底树木奇高,直冲山顶,使建造空中走廊成为可
能。尽管走廊很结实,但仍然感觉头晕目眩——山谷太深了,根本见不到底,至少应该有100多米深。很小心地踏上走廊,双手紧紧握住竖起的绳子,丝毫不敢懈怠。为了放松下来,试着将注意力转移到周围的景色上,果然奏效。

    这里的景色对于第一次参观的游客来说只有一个词可以形容——如梦似幻。四周除了绿色还是绿色,连绵不断,真是“此景只应梦中有”啊!向下看,谷底翠树熙熙攘攘,擦肩接踵,鸟儿在脚下飞翔;向上看,白雾绕身,天空似乎只有一步之遥,踮起脚就能够到。天啊,简直就是来到了世界之巅,正穿云破雾,御鸟飞行!此时已完全放松下来,开始让同事拍照,甚至对这镜头做起鬼脸。

    空中走廊的经历至今难忘,常在梦中出现,而且越来越清晰。如果有机会再次回到加纳,游览空中走廊一定是我的首选。

    The Ghanaian New Year is the 1st of January with three days' holidays usually. In order to suit local customs our boss decided to celebrate Chinese Spring Festival in advance, killing two birds with one stone. During the holiday, we were organized to visit three famous scenic spots with one each day. In the evening afore our traveling we ate Chinese dumplings and the next day we started off at 4:00 . The first destination was Kakum National Park.

        Kakum National Park, famous for its rainforest canopy walkway, is located in the southern part of Ghana in what is known as the Central Region. The Park was first established in 1990, occupying an area of 350 square kilometers expanding from the north of Cape Coast to Elmina the small town of Abrafo. The entire area is covered with tropical rainforest.

 

We reached the park at 9:00.  After buying the tickets we directly headed to Canopy Walkway built on the top of the rain forest. First we checked in at the entrance, and then followed a small road laid by wood plates up the mountain top where the walkway was located.

The starting point of the walkway was set at the top of the mountain slop, below which was a deep valley full of very tall trees of unknown kinds. The trees were so tall as to reach the top of the mountain to make it possible to build the walkway on the heads of these trees. Though the structure of the walkway was very strong, I still felt very unsafe when I looked down--it was so deep that you could not see the ground--at least 100 meters above the ground I guessed.  With great care, I stepped on the walkway with both hands holding the vertical ropes tightly. In order to relax myself, I tried to shift my attention to the surrounding scenery, which was proven quite effective. There was only one word to describe the scene for a person who visited the walkway for the first time like me -- surreal. I was surrounded by nothing but colour green of different shades, which could only be seen in dreams. Looking down there were countless trees blanketing the ground, the birds flying under my feet; looking up the sky was just a stone throw away from me, feeling like I could touch the sky by tiptoeing. Hooray! I was on the top of the world. Now I was totally relaxed and began to ask my colleagues to take pictures for me. I even made faces before the camera.

 

       It was really an unforgettable experience in my life. For so many times in my dreams I dreamed flying  in the sky accompanied by beautiful birds, like an immortal being. I couldn't help to run through the walkway, laughing and waving my hands and even thrusting away my T-shirt. I was completely lost in such intoxicating moment, forgetting that I was living in 21st century but as if I had crossed over thousands years back to that ancient time when our ancestors were hunting for survival. I think the impulse is deeply embedded in my genes passing down from my ancestors -- wild, free, and fearless.

       From then on the moment I was on the walkway always reappears in my dreams or when I am obsessed in reverie. If I have another chance to go to Ghana the Canopy Walkway will definitely be the first choice for me to revisit.
