    Runter kommen sie alle

    May 12 in Nepal

    I survived Lukla Airport! :) Die Twinotter hat uns an den Start gebracht, einen ersten Blick in der Himalaya gegeben und das Tor zur einem weiteren Abenteuer geöffnet. Der erste Trek Tag ist vorbei, es ging hauptsächlich bergab, ein erster Vorgeschmack kommt morgen. Das ständige Trinken (4-5l Wasser) nervt ein wenig, muss ja irgendwie auch wieder raus. Heute die erste Teahouse Nacht auf 2700m Hoehe, schon ein wenig kalt ...aber da kommt ja noch einiges mehrRead more

    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.

    At the bottom of the top

    December 1, 2016 in Nepal

    I'm too tired to write a long post. Most challenging day. We got close to the bottom of Mount Everest. Here, the altitude was getting to me. 5300m today. Sleeping at 4900m. Hiking was strenuous, every step takes all of your concentration. Now I'm ready for a long long sleep.

    Day 1 Lukla to Phakding

    December 30, 2016 in Nepal

    An early start from the hotel turned into a very late start from the airport with delays after delays.
    The plane trip was awesome, at times flying over the tops of smaller mountains by 100m and then landing on a tiny runway that ends straight into the side of the mountain.
    From Lukla we walked about two and a half hours to Phakding and our first teahouse. It is much more substantial than I expected.Read more

    One jeep, twelve people

    November 24, 2016 in Nepal

    I think today was the craziest and most exciting drive of my life. At 5 in the morning, my guide Ganesh and I began our 12-hour odyssey through the Nepalese countryside. It was out of an adventure book: 12 people in a 8-person vehicle, all our backpacks tired up on the top rack, bumpy roads that lead you directly through rivers and right along steep, steep mountains. Only missing were 12 chickens on our laps to make the picture complete ;-)

    The landscape is absolutely beautiful - mountains, windy roads and small villages on the slopes wherever you look.

    We got to Salleri in the late afternoon and hiked for one short hour to a charming little tea house and family home, where we will stay tonight. Before dinner, I got to do some reading and math homework with my new friend Soman.

    Up, up, up

    November 26, 2016 in Nepal

    What a fantastic day! I'm completely beat from some of the steepest trails I've ever been on. Always hiking right on the edge of the mountain, the views were incredible. I'm now in villages that are solely accessible by foot or helicopter. And many porters and mules crossed out path again.

    Most beautiful moment of the day: I made jokes with three extremely shy Nepali kids and ended up sharing my breakfast with them, opening up and laughing together :)

    Here's a 360° view of a tea house kitchen where we shared lunch with a local family unfortunately they moved so you can't really see them but you get a sense for the inside of the local houses
