our client says Reise ins geheimnisvolle Königreich Mustang Am 1. Mai 2010 machten sich, 7 abenteuerhungrige Schweizer auf den langen Flug nach Kathmandu. Einerseits mit grosser Vorfreude und andererseits mit einem etwas mulmigen Gefühl, da in ganz Nepal einen Generalstreik vorausgesagt wurde und wir nicht wussten ob unser Trekking ins Königreich Mustang wirklich zustande kommen wird. Doch am Flughafen in Kathmandu wurden wir schon von Yagya unserem Trekkinguide vor Ort freundlich empfangen und er cauffierte uns mit dem Bus das erste Mal durch die Strassen von Kathmandu in unser Hotel im Stadtteil Tamel. Durch den Streik waren alle Einheimischen auf der Strasse, überall wurden Parolen gerufen , rote Flaggen und T-Shirt getragen, es herrschte ein richtiges Chaos und das richtige Leben stand völlig still, ausser wir als Touristen wurden noch in der Stadt herumgefahren. Müde und froh sind wir dann im Hotel angekommen und genossen ein par Stunden für uns bis wir uns dann gemeinsam zum Abendessen trafen. read more View All

Spanish woman completes 14 summits
Spanish woman completes 14 summits
2010-05-18

Spanish mountaineer Edurne Pasaban became the second women to climb 14 highest mountains in the world when she reached the summit of Mt Shisha Pangma in Tibet on May 17.

South Korean Oh Eun-Sun became the first woman to complete all 14 summits when she reached the summit of Mt Annapurna on April 27. However, Pasaban has been questioning one of Oh's summits. The expedition, which left Camp 3 before dawn, took advantage of the good weather to head for the summit, arriving there after a trek of seven hours.

Pasaban’s aim to climb the 14 peaks kicked off in 1998 with her failed attempt on Dhaulagiri. But it really began to take shape on May 23, 2001, when she made it to the top of Mount Everest, the first of the 14.

That same year, she climbed Makalu and Cho Oyu; followed by Lhotse, Gasherbrum I and Hidden Peak in 2003; K2 in 2004; Nanga Parbat in 2005, Broad Peak in 2007, Manaslu and Dhaulagiri in 2008 and Kanghenjunga last year.
