New Caledonia Treking Riviere des Pirogues Watchtower

One of the things I love most about New Caledonia is the great treking. Every weekend thousands of Noumea residents leap in their cars with their friends and drive to one of the hundreds of trails that criss-cross Grande Terre. The southern part of the island is largely uninhabited and most of it is wilderness - some in protected reserves - some just sitting there. New Caledonia treking is second to none in the South Pacific. 

This sphere image was taken from a watchtower on top of the easternmost of the Deux Tetons (that's French for "two tits"). It looks down into the valley of the Riviere des Pirogues. The government set up a series of watchtowers like this one for volunteers who keep a lookout for fires during the dry, hot season.

This trek followed an old mining road to the now-abandoned mine on top of the Deux Tetons. It was great exercise, and by the time we got back down to the river valley we were ready for a cool swim in the cascades.

此全景拍摄于新喀里多尼亚

这是一个概述新喀里多尼亚

新喀里多尼亚是离澳大利亚和新西兰最近的南太平洋岛屿。该岛是法国领地且官方语言是法语,尽管如此,其文化却丰富多彩,揉合了美拉尼西亚、欧洲、波利尼西亚、越南、中国、印尼等国的风情。这里有一个多山的大岛,称为大地岛 (Grande Terre),和6个较小的岛屿——洛亚蒂三岛 (Loyalty Islands)、贝莱普群岛 (Belep) 和松树岛 (Isle of Pines)。

整个群岛人口极为稀少,有大片的荒野。这里有数百公里长的徒步小径、随处可见的露营营地、超过42个公园和保护区、清澈透明的河流和莹莹闪光的瀑布。约三分之一的人口居住在首府努美阿。镍的开采是该国最主要的工业,也是维持其高标准生活的主要经济来源。大地岛四周环绕着世界第二大珊瑚礁,此珊瑚礁形成的泻湖是世界上最大的,也是受保护的泻湖。该泻湖于2008年被列为世界遗产,面积达24000平方公里,是品种丰富的鱼类和无脊椎动物栖息之地。

对于刚上岛的游客而言,最引人注目的是这里鲜艳夺目的色彩。努美阿以其完备的酒店、度假酒店、餐馆设施和丰富多彩的活动欢迎游客的到来。
