Cleaning of the hermitage of Tövkhön khiid, by Perrine Pigeon

Mi August: Max and I, traveling with a group of tourists, go to the hermitage of Tövkhön khiid. One of my favorite places, a small monastery perched on its granite overhang, nestled in the heart of the Khangaï massif, in the Orkhon valley, classified World Heritage of Humanity by Unesco … a rare pearl …

But here, precisely, here is the salty, this pearl; we stomach the stomach on these three kilometers of climb, on this forest road so beautiful but polluted waste. And up ! Two massive heaps of detritus, already well pre-sorted by the monks, have been waiting for the last two years … Only between 5 and 15 monks on this hermitage, but the fame of this place Buddhist meditation, pilgrimage par excellence, also attracts some 1600 tourists and 3000 Mongols each year.
What to leave, waste …

       

End of August: back to UB, we are motivated; thanks to a very good teamwork and a very generous contribution of my friends and acquaintances working in tourism, we left to six on the road again to clean the hermitage. We pass through Kharkhorin and try a small stop at the monastery of Erdene Zuu and we left with three young lamas “under the arm” to help us pick up everything. They will not be too much, the little guys …
35 bags picked up on the way, 154 bags of 50l of all waste, 87 bags of plastic compiled, 10 bags of glass and 1 bag of can: a beautiful harvest, estimated at about 1880 kg!
It will be remembered, of these three kilometers of road, running, descended curved by picking up, raised by pulling a devil, descended in chariot of khaïnag or microbus that one will have pushed out of its mud gangue …

     

We will remember, from these mountains of garbage sorted, picked up by a shovel, bagged, loaded on the cart, down on this road, reloaded on the truck trash that was waiting for us downstairs to bring us to Khujirt with our harvest …
It will be remembered that the monk’s nocturnal chanting in this magical place under a sky covered with stars, from the morning sound of the conch to the rising to call to the office, of this impromptu release of twenty or so monks of 20 at 22h come to help us finish these heaps …
(Solongo and Khashaa), Fred (Step In), Joel (Wind of Mongolia), Anya (Escape), Emeline (Mongolian Sky), and many others who have made my dream possible. Christophe (Terre Mongolie), Soyolo (DMD) …
I would remember this fantastic team of friends who supported me and picked me up on these roadsides to clean up an earth that sometimes can not stand: Max, Marina, Stephane, Dogoo, Bat Olzii; and those three little guys who had not asked for anything: Altangerel, Tsend-Ayush, Tsowoodorj.
 
He will remember, Shagdarsuren, the khamba Lama of Tövkhön khiid:
“This is an incredible action that the Mongols did not think of. They (our team) were well organized: mostly intellectually united, with heart on hand, they quickly cleaned up these large quantities of garbage, sorting all the waste; it’s incredible ! The pilgrims do not even find a good word to praise the merits of these young people, who alone are preoccupied not to pollute. What charity, what benevolence for us, just when we needed only the effort and the workforce for the organization. To say just thank you would not be at all sufficient in relation to their benevolences. They deserve a huge thank you. We extend our best wishes for the success of their activities and their goodwill initiatives. “
