Siberia, Willking track

For a short English summary please have a look below.

Z Wanaky jsem popojeli asi 80km severneji do Makarory. Uz nekolik lidi nam doporucilo, ze v okoli Makarory jsou krasna udoli a ledovcova jezera. Puvodne jsme chteli jit okruh pres udoli Young, ale kvuli sesuvu pudy toto udoli bylo zavrene. My jsme chteli ale hlavne do udoli Siberia. V Makarore je nekolik spolecnosti, ktere nabizeji doprovu lodi (jet boat), letadlem nebo helikopterou. Tyto udoli nejsou tak komercni a ceny jsou vcelku prijatelne. My jsme si zaplatili jet boat a asi 45min jizda asi 40-50km/h po rece nas nadchla. Temto lodim staci 8-12 cm vody aby projely! Pak jsme vystoupali do Siberia udoli a dosli az k Siberia chate.

Druhy den se pocasi zhorsilo a zacalo prset, ale podle predpovedi se melo odpoledne vycasit. Coz se stalo a my jsme mohli vyrazit na 5-6 hodinovy vylet k ledovcovemu jezeru Crucible. Cestou jsme museli prejit/ prebrodit tri reky. Protoze bylo po desti, tak byl trosku vyssi stav vody, ale voda sahala lehce nad kolena. Treti reka byla horska bystrina a vubec se nam pres ni nechtelo. (Ted asi Luccina mamka skripe zubama… ale nebylo to tak hrozny… kdyz tak Oli preskocte zase techto par vet, abyste byla klidnejsi… 🙂 ). Vlezl jsem do reky a kdyz Lucka videla, ze jsem ji v pohode prosel, tak se taky rozhodla jit. Vratil jsem se pro ni a pomohl ji na druhou stranu. Problem nebyl ani v tom, ze by voda bylo hodne hluboka, zase byla jen nad kolena, ale byla rychla a mela silu. Zvladli jsme ale v pohode. Dosli jsme az k jezeru Crucible a to nam vyrazilo dech. Uplne nahore, ohranicene naprosto strmymi horami bylo male jezero, ve kterem plavaly velke kry ledu.

Cesta zpatky byla uz jednodussi a vsechny tri reky jsme bez problemu presli.

Po dalsi noci v chate Siberia jsme sli zpatky do udoli reky Willkin a po chvili hledani mista, kde bychom prebrodili reku (asi 30m), jsme nasli misto kousek od pristaviste jet boat a presli ji. Prechazeni techto rek ma svoje kouzlo a hodne jsme se pritom naucili. Jsou to veci, ktery u nas clovek vubec delat nemusi, ale jak se ocitne v nedotcene prirode, tak je to nutnost.
Sli jsme okolo reky hloubeji do udoli Willkin. Jete asi trikrat jsme museli prebrodit reku, ale v poradku jsme se dostali do Upper Forks chaty. Tam uz bylo par mistnich Kiwi. Udelali jsme si veceri a povidali si s nima. Byl to ale dlouhej den a sli jsme brzo spat.

Rano jsme vstavali brzy a chteli si jeste pred postupnym navratem zpet udelat vylet k dalsim ledovcovym jezerum. Ze tri jsme videli dve. Jezero Diana (nejen tady jsme si vzpomneli na broucky 🙂 ) a jezero Lucidus. Moc pekne.

Cestou k jezerum a zpet jsme museli prechazet dve reky. Uz to pro nas bylo podstatne snadnejsi. Brali jsme si s sebou sandaly a pohorky vzdy vymenovali. Mistni prochazeji reky v pohorkach, ale my mame radi v nasich botech teplo a sucho. Vsechny tyto reky jsou ledovy.

Prisli jsme zpatky k Upper Forks chate vzali si bagly a vyrazili zpatky udolim. Po sesti hodinach (a vyborne koupacce v rece 🙂 ) jsme dosli zase k mistu, kde pristavaji jet boat. je tam take chata – Kerin Forks. Tam jsme prenocovali a druhy den vyrazili cestou, kterou nas privezla lod. Tentokrat jsme to vzali pesky a nelitovali jsme.

Udoli reky Willkin (Willkin valley)

Mensi obavy jsme meli z toho, ze jsme museli projit i reku Makarora. Je to hodne velka reka, ktera se rozliva do nekolika ramen a kazdy z nich ma nekolik desitek ramen. Nastesti jsme tam potkali jednoho rybare, ktery nam ukazal dobrou cestu, kterou jsme v poradku a bezpecne reku Makarora presli. Ono nekolik dni uz bylo pekne a reka mela nizky stav. Voda tak dosahovala jen nad kolena. Meli jsme stesti a pro toho rybare Grega prijeli rodice autem a svezli nas az do mestecka Makarora k autu. Usetrili jsme tak asi hodinu a pul nudne cesty okolo silnice.

From Wanaka we drove just 80km to the North to Makarora. There are some valleys which are not so known and are very beautiful – Siberia and Willking valleys. We took the jet boat to get to Kerin Forks hut, appr. 45min drive in 40-50km/h. It was our first time with such a boat and we have enjoyed it.

We walked then only 3 hours through Siberia Valley and came to Siberia hut and here we stayed over night. Weather next day was not so nice and it was rainy. But we spent this day talking to very nice people Pete and Dee from Australia and the hut wardens Emilly and Chris with their kids Hunter and Eve. Emilly and Chris were so nice and they have invited us to their home. We have visited them just couple of days later.

In the afternoon the sky cleared out and we went to lake Crucible. On the way there we had to cross three rivers and we did not like especially the third one because the stream was quite strong and swift. But we managed and we could enjoy the lake which was special with enormous blocks of ice floating in the lake. The way back to the Siberia hut was then a little bit easier.

Third day we went back to Kerin Forks and found a good spot to cross the Willkin river. We carried on to Upper Forks hut and crossed the river a few times again.

Forth day we took a small trip to another glacier lakes, lake Diane and lake Lucidus. We did not manage to come to lake Castalia because we went back to Upper Forks hut and went back the Willkin valley to Kerin Forks hut where we stayed over night. Just from Upper to Kerin Forks it was a 6 hours walk.

Fifth day we crossed the Wilkin river again and walked out the valley down to Makarora river. Greg a fisherman helped us to find a good spot for crossing this very wide and big river. His parents gave us a lift to Makarora township to our car.
