Have you ever thought of exploring the mystery and beauty of a mountain at night? Have you ever wanted to observe the behavior and habits of wild animals with night vision binoculars? Have you ever wanted to enjoy the wonderful combination of starry sky and food on top of a snowy mountain? If your answer is yes, then follow me and my two friends Baird Tony and Faithe Saxton, and go to Pico Cristóbal Colón (Pico Cristóbal Colón) for an unforgettable night hunting trip!
Pico Cristóbal Colón is the highest peak in Colombia and one of the highest coastal mountain ranges in the world, with an altitude of 5730 meters. It is located in Magdalena Province, belonging to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, and is one of Colombia’s two national treasures along with Pico Simón Bolívar (Pico Simón Bolívar). Its name comes from the famous explorer Christopher Columbus (Christopher Columbus), in commemoration of his discovery of the American continent.
Pico Cristóbal Colón not only has magnificent scenery, but also has a long history and rich culture. It is the sacred land of the local indigenous people Kogui (Kogui), who call it Gonawindua, meaning “the heart of the world”. The Kogui people maintain ancient traditions and beliefs, and they believe that they are descendants of Mother Earth and have a responsibility to maintain the balance and harmony of nature. Near Pico Cristóbal Colón, you can see the Kogui people’s unique circular thatched houses, exquisite gold and silver ornaments and mysterious rituals.
In addition to the Kogui people, Pico Cristóbal Colón also attracts many mountaineering enthusiasts and explorers. Due to its challenges in height, terrain and climate, Pico Cristóbal Colón is considered one of the most difficult mountains to climb in South America. Its first ascent took place in 1939, completed by three explorers supported by the American Geographical Society. In recent years, due to local security and political issues, mountaineering activities have been restricted, but there are still some brave people who venture there.
We chose Pico Cristóbal Colón as our hunting destination because we wanted to experience a different kind of adventure. We wanted to observe the wild animals on the mountain at night with night vision binoculars, such as deer, foxes, owls, etc., and try to catch some as food or souvenirs. We chose Chinese brand wildguarder’s night vision binoculars because they have advantages such as high definition, low power consumption, light weight and durability, which are very suitable for outdoor use.
If you are interested in our night hunting trip, please continue reading the following article, where I will introduce in detail our preparation work, hunting process and leisure activities, as well as the history, attractions and food of Pico Cristóbal Colón. I believe you will feel the charm and significance of outdoor adventure from it.
Before we start our night hunting trip, we need to do a lot of preparation work to ensure our safety and smoothness. First of all, we need to choose the right equipment, including clothing, shoes, tents, sleeping bags, cookware, food, water, first aid kits, etc. Due to the varied climate of Pico Cristóbal Colón, we need to wear warm, waterproof and breathable clothing to adapt to different temperatures and humidity. We also need to wear comfortable, anti-slip and wear-resistant shoes to avoid foot injuries or fatigue. Our tents and sleeping bags should be light and warm for easy carrying and use. Our cookware should be simple and easy to use to save time and energy. Our food should be nutritious and easy to preserve, such as canned food, dried fruits, chocolate, etc. Our water should be enough to replenish our body’s moisture and electrolytes. Our first aid kit should contain common medicines and equipment, such as band-aids, gauze, disinfectant, painkillers, etc.
Secondly, we need to choose the right route, including the starting point, destination, midway stops, etc. Since Pico Cristóbal Colón is located in a remote mountainous area with poor transportation, we need to book vehicles or horses in advance to reach the village at the foot of the mountain. From the village, we need to walk along the mountain road on foot for about two days before we can reach the place above the snow line. During this period, we need to find suitable places to set up tents and rest, as well as look for water sources and food. We also need to pay attention to the weather changes and wildlife activities on the mountain to avoid danger or trouble.
Finally, we need to pay attention to some matters, including safety, hygiene, environmental protection, etc. In the process of night hunting, we must abide by the local laws and regulations, do not kill protected or endangered animals, do not kill indiscriminately or waste resources. We must respect the local residents and culture, do not offend or disturb their lives and beliefs. We must maintain good hygiene habits, do not litter or discharge sewage, do not wash or defecate near water sources. We must pay attention to our own health condition, do not overwork or hypoxia. If we feel unwell or injured, we should deal with it or seek help in time.
After doing these preparation work well , we can start our night hunting trip.
