Pakistan 2007 - Baltoro Glacier - K2 Base Camp - Gondogoro-La Trek
Travel

Back in Pakistan for one of the hardest but also one of the most rewarding treks.

2007 was not the best year to cross Gondogoro-La as a crevasse of 4m and no possibility to fix ropes, made it impossible for trekking groups to pass. When we arrived at Goro II we got the news that the rescue team managed to find a new route that will make the crossing possible. A British expedition team will be the first to try the new route. Our team with permit number 118 was able to cross on July 26th as number 6. Only 8 teams in total (6 expedition and 2 trekking teams) could cross Gondogoro-La in 2007. Shortly after our crossing, the pass was closed again.

Italy 2006 - Sicily
Travel

Are 'normal' holidays still possible? Yes! That's what we did in August 2006.

A complete trip through Sicily in two weeks by car. Messina, Cefalù, Palermo, Monreale, Erice, Selinunte, Agrigento, Ragusa, Piazza Armerina, Siracusa, Etna, Taormina.

Besides the view, once again, we fell under the charm of the Italian cuisine. The red bible (Guide Michelin) was of great help to find the best places on the island.

Pakistan 2006 - Nanga Parbat
Travel

A little trek in June 2006 in Northern Pakistan to Fairy Meadows where you have one of the most beautiful views of Nanga Parbat. So the name tells the truth.

An easy trek -what a pitty for me that my wife did it without me this time. On the other hand, based on the pictures she took and the stories she told me, I was convinced to visit Pakistan too one day. I did not realize that it was as soon...

Tibet 2006 - From Kathmandu to Lhasa
Travel

Immediately after the Annapurna Trek we planned to travel to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, by using 4x4 Jeeps. The departure was in Kathmandu, Nepal, and finally the preceding trek was very useful for not getting High Mountain Sickness. The encountered altitude was always around 4000m.

The Tibetans are one of the most inviting people and the salty yak- butter-tea, compared to what is written in most books (tastes like old socks), was even delicious. Give it a try!

During our visit the new Chinese railway Beijing-Lhasa was about to be accomplished. This will unfortunately open the doors to a large Chinese immigration into this rich tradition-bound country. So get there as fast as you can.
