On the other side of the planet, in a country where waterfalls come from the sky, where lost worlds are surrounded by impenetrable forests and rivers are so wide that you can hardly see all the other shores, is where a mysterious creature can be found.
Like a shadow moving silently under the trees, he clenches his twelve centimeter long claws into an unsuspecting prey. Its name was given after the mythical monster of Greek mythology; in the “Divine Comedy“, Dante Alighieri describes the beast:
"The broad wings, faces human shapes,
on foot joints, abdomen feathered
and for lamentation taking singing gifts "
My shoes are slipping on the waterlogged, muddy trail, and I have large beads of sweat flowing down my face. It's early in the morning. The forest floor is still dark but just above the trees I see the warm rays of the sun to caress the first awakened birds. We tread this narrow path every seventh day of our trip. When I finally climb to the observation post, near the Harpy nest, I am starting to feel tired from the previous weeks. The torrential rains and unrelenting heat of the sun have started taking their toll. I wrap up all the equipment with the first drops of tropical downpour and unpack again, it disappears as quickly as it appeared. The afternoon heat keeps me awake.
I am afraid of falling asleep and missing opportunities to photograph one of the most beautiful eagles in the world. To my luck I see Harpies through my telescope. They are hundreds of meters away in a distant tree. Some of them are clamoring for food while others are resting in the shade of the tree.
For a brief, blissful moment nature was willing to share some of its secrets with me. Nature can be pretty stingy, everyone who has ever worked with wild creatures in their natural environment has felt this one time or another.
BUSHMAN clothing is not only the prerogative of travelers and explorers of nature;'s beauties. Today it is commonly worn by most of us to work or to the city. Individual pieces of clothing adapt its functionality, comfort and style to fit the urbanized world.
The necessary foundation of any wardrobe are undoubtedly pants. BUSHMAN has crafted some urban inspired denim. But why not be original? BUSHMAN’s jeans and pants reflect classic style and comfort, thanks to the chosen materials. Selected materials and natural colors are BUSHMAN's core concepts. Breathable and very nice plasticized cotton is a must. Remember that the models are durable and strong as well as easily combinable with any of our tops.
Unlike most standard jeans and pants BUSHMAN has one specialty. Seams, which are ordinarily hidden on the inside of the leg, are on the outside. BUSHMAN accents their products with tiny metal rivets with an embossed BUSHMAN logo, decorative stitches on the back pockets, and triple stitching along the side seam.
Another feature is a pocket hidden on the right side. This small, but practical detail is called a “Watch pocket”. The pocket originally served a straightforward application - a safe haven for pocket watches. From there it also derived its name. Over time, pocket watches were replaced by wrist watches – but the pocket remained. Today it is known as pocket for coins. Although it is mainly a design element, it is up to each of us what we hide in it.
Representative of trouser jeans is Bushman Bastrop.
She wrote a guide and traveler Radka from Bushman Expedition to Mount Dhaulagiri in Nepal, which started at the top of the mountain together with a bunch of travelers.
Dhaulagiri, a majestic eight-thousand mountain is within reach. We climb to 3,600 meters, where tents, and then continue to a height of 4,500 meters, where the dream touch the walls. Then follows a downward route. We stopped for a moment, slowly crawled over rocks, I'm a little cautious, but we finally found a descent just before dusk.
I carried on my back nine to ten kilos of freight, a little more than I wanted, and my doctor recommended. Everything you need with you. My own back did not hurt once in all the time, even after camping on the glacial moraine. Anyone who ever slept on it knows that you will not find flat land instead just the rocks and ice.
Trek was lovely, although often critical. Compared with routes to Everest, Manaslu, or is there a raw way, sometimes the harder thing, but I like it more than the tourist highway. I'm glad I stayed in a block of fall that I had some time ago. I'm just going cautiously than before, but I do not have anything inhibitions go.
At a height of 5,000 meters is overcast, come hail. I waited for buddies from hot to cold did, but there was no room to get dressed. It started nicely blow, and they had to wait. Fortunately, I myself be frozen, Tom waited with me, it helped me a lot.
This trek is definitely recommended to all who want something more rugged and handsome.
