    Just before Marpha we came to the river of the valley and we assumed to find a bridge somewhere. But there were none. Just one other German, Christian, which alries tried for three times to cross the river, but had to give up through deepness and strength of the water.

    So we stocked together in the mission to reach Marpha. According to the maps we had the real way goes up along the mountain flank just beside the river. But how should we get up? Walk all the way back to the actually ascent?

    Nooo way. We decided to find our own way and ended up a very steep passage through an empty river channel climbing 150 height meters with big backpacks and after an already very long day of walking.

    Kinda dangerous, but also lots of fun!
