    Am Ziel der Träume

    May 19 in Nepal

    Ja ja ja, ich höre Euch schon sagen, diese bekloppte Fortuna ;) Aber ein zweifacher Aufstieg ist einfach schöner...und zum wiederholten Mal im Mai kommen da besondere Emotionen hoch. Es war hart, Höhe und Erkältung setzen stark zu, aber das Erlebnis, sein Ziel und vielleicht auch ein Limit zu erreichen, ist unbeschreiblich.
    Es kommt einem so unwirklich hier oben vor. Ich werde laenger brauchen, dies zu verarbeitenRead more

  • Day12

    We made it!
    It was a gruelling day, buffeted by icy winds so strong they blew you over. 8 hours of walking time so we are all feeling rather pooped.
    Everest is the little brown triangle above my head in the last photo.

    A day in slow motion

    November 30, 2016 in Nepal

    I've been between 4000 and 5100 meters today and up here, you do things slowly: eating, hiking, laundry, reading, thinking, .....

    We started early and caught a beautiful sunrise. From here, the landscape changed drastically - no more trees and eventually barely any bushes, but glaciers and 8000m peaks wherever you look. And it's cold in the morning, my drinking bottle valve froze every 15-20 minutes :)

    It was a steep incline and we did another 200m incline (to 5100m) after getting to our tea house to acclimatize. The trick is to sleep lower than your highest elevation of the day. I'm feeling completely exhausted and am looking forward to some slow motion sleep soon.

    Day 8 - Dingboche to Loboche

    January 6, 2017 in Nepal

    Ending at an altitude of 4920 today, the air up here is getting pretty thin making every step harder and harder.
    Absolutely freezing in the morning (all day really) beautiful walking in the sun as long as the wind stayed away.
    The last photo is of the climbers memorials. There must be over 100 cairns representing the climbrrs who did not make it back from their expeditions.
    Looking forward to base camp tomorrow!Read more

    Chukhung to Pyramid

    April 15, 2017 in Nepal

    Chukhung (4730m) - Dingboche (4410m) - Dhugla (4620m) - Lobuche (4910m) - Pyramid (4970m)
    "Nichts ist so beständig wie die Lageänderung" they always told me in the army :D. It snowed almost 20cm tonight and I decided not to walk over Kongma la Pass (5535m), because I don't know the way and it was quiet cloudy. But the landscape was amazing! Everything was covered in snow, it was freezing cold and the panorama was maybe the best till now. So I started walking through this winter wonderland, built a snowman and often stopped to enjoy the silence and views. The closer I came to Dingboche, the more "tourists" had been there. And after Dingboche, on the way to Lobuche, it was crazy: hundreds of people and Yaks, often there had been traffic jams 🙈 as I finally arrived in Lobuche, they told me that all lodges are already full. They offered me to stay in the Pyramid, an Italian research station with "hotel", a little bit more expensive, but with food, wifi and power inclusive^^. So I went here and made, together with 3 French guys, new plans: tomorrow early in the morning to Kala Patthar (Lookout, 5550m, with good view on Everest), then down to theBasecamp (5360m) and back to the hotel.

    It's almost like paradise here :D hot drinks inclusive; popcorn, soup and dal bat (with meat!) for dinner (almost like all you can eat👍). And all that at 5000m altitude!

    Pyramid to EBC

    April 16, 2017 in Nepal

    Pyramid (4970m) - Ghorak Shep (5100m) - Kala Patthar (5550m) - Ghoral Shep- EBC (5300m) - Ghorak Shep - Pyramid
    What a day. Starting at 6am with freezing cold wind (up to 60 km/h) and it didn't stop. Maybe the coldest day in my life, seems like two of my fingertips were damaged...
    But therefore the air was very clean and I had amazing views. After almost 3 hours we (I walked with from Checke) reached the top of Kala Patthar. Often the wind was so strong that we were blown some steps down again, but at the top it was luckily not too windy and we could enjoy the views: Everest, Lothse, Everest Base Camp, the whole Khumbu Glacier and heaps of other summits. Definitely the highlight of the tramp. Going down again was also not easy, because there still was some snow left and it was often slippery. Furthermore the wind often blew us down and it was hard to stop. Walking to EBC was harder as I thought. Lots of up and down and still the icy wind blowing in the face all the time. And honestly, it was not really worth going there. Only lots of people, you can't see Everest from there,... Bug now I can say I've been there :D Walking back was really hard. I felt that I haven't been drinking enough and I was freezing like crazy, but after 9 hours I finally was back. I had a strong headache and couldn't feel some of my fingertips. But after drinking lots of hot tea and relaxing in the warm bed I was almost fine again. And having the first time pasta since two weeks was also awesome!Read more

    Day 8 Dingboche/Lobuche

    October 1, 2017 in Nepal

    Elevation: 5000m

    The ascent towards Everest Base Camp continues through Alpine meadows and summer yak pastures towards the end of the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. The steep climb to the top - 400m in assent took as to one of sacred sites on the walk. Multiple stone monuments with praying flags are scattered across the plato to remind us of the Sherpas and other climbers who died in Everest or were associated with Everest. The landscape is also now extremely rocky with little vegetation.

    Temperature also plummeted to below zero.
     
    We got Lobosche at 1500 and ascended to a hill at the back to finally get to the 5000m mark.

    Accommodation : Sherpa Lodge
