最危險的旅館:半懸高空的“火箭筒”

最危險的旅館:半懸高空的“火箭筒”

  Teetering a thousand feet above jagged rock faces in the Alps, this is the world's scariest hotel.
  懸在一千英尺高岩石上的旅店恐怕能算得上是世界上最令人心驚膽戰的旅店了。

  The white and red metal tube is designed to hold up to 12 weary climbers crossing the deadly Mont Blanc mountain range in Italy.

  紅白相間的金屬管是專門為攀登義大利勃朗峰登山者設計的,一共能容納12人。



  It includes wooden bunk beds, a kitchen, dining room, storage racks and a living room with stunning views over the Fribouze Glacier.

  裏面設有雙層床、一個廚房、一個餐廳、貨架以及一個能欣賞到冰川美景的客廳。

  Climbing experts believe the hut could save the lives of stranded climbers if they are caught in blizzards and lost in the dark.

  攀登專家認為這家旅店能夠為遇到暴風雪或因天黑迷路的登山者提供庇護。

通過直升機運送修建旅館各個部分

  The solar-powered refuge replaced a shabby wooden hut that was built in 1948.

  這個避難所是由太陽能維持的,替代了于1948年在這裡建造的簡陋木屋。

  Some climbers say the new 'garish' structure is not in keeping with the surroundings but local authorities wanted something that was easy to spot.

  一些攀登者說這個酷炫十足的結構與周圍環境不搭,但是當局認為應該建造一座更易於人們發現的結構。

  Engineers from Italian designers Leap Factory made the 250,000 euro structure, which was commissioned by the Italian Alpine Club. It was finished earlier this year and opened for the first time at the end of Spring.

  義大利設計公司飛越工廠應義大利阿爾卑斯山俱樂部的委託花費25萬歐元搭建了這座旅館。

  Helicopters had to make several flights from the nearest village in Courmayeur, Val Ferret, to airlift different parts of the hostel into place.

  直升飛機從庫馬耶最近的村莊將旅社的各部分空運至現在的地方。

旅店懸在一千英尺高的岩石上

  Builders then fastened it securely to the rock face using heavy-duty bolts. The 100sq/ft 'bivouac' shelter is 3,000m above sea level and half of it hangs over a terrifying drop.

  建築工人們用膨脹鉚釘將其牢牢固定在岩石表面。這個100平方英尺的露營避難所位於海拔3000米的地方,而且一半是懸在空中的。

  The hostel sits close to the border for climbers who are crossing a popular route between the French side of the Alps and the Italian.

  旅店坐落在攀登者喜歡的阿爾卑斯上法國義大利一側。

  The hotel includes internet connection to give real time information on weather conditions.

  旅店可以上網,能夠提供實時天氣預報。

  Reservations have to be made online and it is expected to could cost around 30 euros a night to stay there.

  想要住進這裡需要提前網上預訂,一晚大概花費30歐元。 

  'The refuge is a great achievement,' said a spokesman for the designers. 'The materials used are of a high standard and they are capable of handling the extreme temperatures.

  設計公司發言人說:“旅店的建成是一項偉大的成就。用於建造旅店的材料都是高水準的,能夠應對極端天氣。”

  The refuge is named after the great Italian mountaineer Guisto Gervasutti and looks out over the same mountain range he was the first to conquer - the east face of the Grandes Jorasses - which he scaled in 1942.

  旅社以義大利著名登山家Guisto Gervasutti命名,而且旅社正好面向他于1942年征服的第一座山脈——大喬拉斯峰東壁。

  The British Mountaineering Council said reaching the hut is particularly perilous. 'The approach to the hut, passes the site of the old Friboudze Bvouac (2,363m), a tiny wooden shelter built in 1925.

  英國登山協會稱想要到達這個避難所危險重重,在到達此處之前,登山者會經過1925年建造的木質小避難所。

  'It was dismantled some years ago and now resides in a museum.

  “多年之前小木屋就被拆除了,它已經被搬進了博物館。”

  'After conquering the Grandes Jorasses, Gervasutti died four years later attempting the first ascent of a prominent rock pillar on Mont Blanc du Tacul that now bears his name.

  “征服大喬拉斯峰4年後,Gervasutti在試圖攀登勃朗杜塔庫峰大岩柱時不幸遇難。”
