山驴驿站:天水手笔

"人在大自然面前是何等的渺小 与其说征服一座山 不如说是征服自己;

征服自己那些狂妄自大的想法 抑或说征服自己面对艰难困境时懦弱的表现。

这都需凝聚所有的勇气与毅力 将自己推向极限。

因此需要不断地向自己的内心寻找力量 使自己更能笑对人生。

登山所追求的 是不断征服自己超越自己的过程 而不是那一座座的高山!

山是一座伟大的收容所 它收容人们不羁的心。。。

尝试与山交流 与山对话 体验登山过程中 那种融入自然的快乐,

真真实实地感受双脚与大地的接触。。。

到过多高的海拔高度并不重要,

而从登山中感受到了什么,

才是登山的真正意义所在。

你会发觉收获远比山的高度更高、

更明白登山永远不是征服这么简单的事情。。。

去吧!

去到比顶峰更高的地方。。。

发现自己。"

登山 - 槟城 - 解密30公里古老水道往升旗山的路(Hike 30km to Reservoirs, Aqueducts and Dams)

传说中,槟城峇都丁宜山谷(Batu Ferrignhi Hills)南天门瀑布的古老水道的山路,可以通往升旗山(Penang Hill),七年前(2010年)曾经跟朋友走了一次,没找到路铩羽而归。大约一年半后,跟着山驴又在探路,这算勉强过关。第三次是跟森林之子安安分分的登山。七年后的今天,才完完整整的走完这条路。
这次走的路线如下预算大约30公里
Botanical Garden-Crag Hotel-Western Hill army camp-Aqueduct-Chin Farm-Tmn Rimba junction 13-Laksamana-Penang Hill-Jeep track to 84-Botanical

蓄水池

槟城人真幸运。西北部青山隐隐,绿水迢迢。亚依淡和直落巴巷两个水坝,蓄水池及净水厂各五,六处。在槟城水供机构(Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang)管理和完整配水系统下,让槟城人有足够的水供,还享付全马最低廉的水费。这一切供水系统进程始于1800年英殖民统治时期。开辟槟榔屿的莱特大佐,基于初时岛民凿井取水,有些井水既少又混浊,不适于一般饮用,逐开发了一套供水系统。1804年起,槟榔屿殖民地政府即将部分的山水,经改道和导流的工程,把水引到蓄水池,再经过滤才输送到岛民所居住的地方。

这项系统持续发展到1920年,乔治市议会水务部门的水利工程师JD Fettes,为了引导北海岸的巴都丁宜山谷(Batu Ferrignhi Hills)上的水到丹绒武雅蓄水池(Guillemard Reservoir 眼镜池),规划设计了这条引水道,全程长7公里。

百年前的基础设施

首要引导工程是将山上所有的泉水河流,收集到同一室,并依照地势,部分地段用砖石砌筑一条长沟渠,余者利用陶质排水管道露天架空铺设,或埋设在地下,连接推动水流到蓄水池。
目前这条百年前的基础设施,在槟城水供机构的管理下继续使用。

早上七点从植物园千层楼梯开始,一直来到这里大约十二点,途中有休息一小时。

大约五点半抵达了升旗山顶,然后在花费一小时多,大约六点半抵达了山脚下才结束了30公里要11小时的登山路程elevation大约两千。

An appreciation of Penang’s history is integral to understanding the importance of heritage. For example, one of the reasons why early mariners stopped at Penang was to replenish their supplies of fresh water. Batu Ferringhi (Foreigners’ Rock) with its waterfall once visible from the sea was one such source for sailing ships to obtain water before and after crossing the Indian Ocean.

Near the current E&O Hotel on the north shore was a later site — known as Sweet Water Bay and depicted in early paintings — the terminus of an aqueduct from the Waterfall behind the present Botanic Gardens. That waterfall and the reservoir at its base are the site of the oldest water works in Malaysia and should be regarded as a heritage site.

历史遗迹

历史遗迹
Other early reservoirs and aqueducts also deserve designation as heritage sites. In particular, the picturesque Guillemard Reservoir at Mount Erskine built in 1929 under the supervision of Penang’s first municipal water engineer J.D. Fettes is not only a functioning example of early 20th century engineering but a site of outstanding beauty that was a popular venue for pre-war picnics before it was closed to the public.

The Guillemard Reservoir is part of a public water supply system designed by Fettes that includes a four-mile-long aqueduct built in 1926-1929 winding through the hills above Batu Ferringhi. Fed by three intakes from hillside jungle streams, this historic aqueduct leads to a mile-long tunnel and a 24-inch cast-iron pipeline ending at the Guillemard Reservoir.

古老的水坝

古老的水坝
The Guillemard Reservoir and Batu Ferringhi aqueduct were opened on 16th July 1929 by Sir Hugh Clifford, Governor of the Straits Settlements, who named the reservoir after his predecessor Sir Lawrence Guillemard and Lady Guillemard. In commending Fettes for his design and work on the reservoir and aqueduct Governor Clifford noted he had worked for six years without taking leave.* Construction of the new water scheme had been approved during Guillemard’s term in office.

Details of the reservoir and aqueduct were described in full in The Straits Times of 17th July 1929. Built at a cost of $3,700,000 with a capacity of  7 million gallons the reservoir was constructed in two halves so that one half may be in use when the other half is being cleaned. Following the contours of the hills the smallest section of the Batu Ferringhi aqueduct has a gradient of 1 in 500 at the intake end. The largest section beyond the intakes has a gradient of 1 in 1,800. From the reservoir a 27-inch cast-iron pipeline was laid to Pangkor Road and from there a 24-inch pipeline to Pitt Street.

Other examples of impressive public water works are the Ayer Itam Reservoir with its prominent art deco clock tower as well as the separate Ayer Itam Dam.
*Note: James Dollery Fettes died on home leave in England in 1931 after delaying his leave for several years. His widow was awarded a gratuity of $15,000 by the Penang Municipal Commissioners in recognition of his “highly meritorious services”.
