    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 verarbeiten

    Mount Everest

    September 30 in Nepal

    Absolutely breathtaking (and a with filter because taking pictures out of the plane windows was hard).

    While the flight was just one hour and quite costly, it was totally worth it. Flying over those mountaintops, seeing just how large they are. The clouds moving in-between the peaks. Ahh it was amazing!Read 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.

    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

    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!

    Day 6 - Tengboche to Dengboche

    January 4, 2017 in Nepal

    Today was a really hard slog. I think the days of being sick and not eating properly have caught up with me.
    It is starting to get really cold. I woke up to frozen toothpaste and sunscreen and all our hoses on our hydration packs froze as we walked!

    Paiya to Phakding

    April 20, 2017 in Nepal

    -Elevation 2610 m

    Today we walked 14 km and my slightly sore throat has developed into an upper respiratory infection. We have finally hit the main trail to Everest Base Camp and there are many more tourists on this trail. It is very different than what we've experienced so far. As grueling and difficult as these days have been, it was lovely to see the less touristy side of Nepal.

    The people here are amazingly tough. They have to be because they carry everything they need for many miles. Apparently, all supplies are trucked into Phaplu, where we started, and then carried everywhere else. It's taken all our strength to walk from Phaplu with just a day pack on our backs, never mind some of the loads we've seen people carrying. You just cannot match the toughness of these people.

    We stayed in a very upscale teahouse in a room with its own bathroom sporting a western toilet and a shower. The tea house had a large dining area but the food was the same as we experienced all along.
