    Tilicho Lake

    October 26, 2015 in Nepal

    Gestern haben wir uns auf den Weg zum Base-Camp vom Tilicho Lake gemacht, entlang einer Erdrutsch gefährdeten Strecke. Wir müssten zwar aufpassen wo wir hintreten, aber Spaß gemacht hat's trotzdem. Heute sind wir dann um 6 Uhr früh vom Base-Camp (4100m über n.N.) zum Tilicho Lake auf knapp 5000m gestartet. Das ist der höchste See der Welt und die Aussicht war grandios. Danach ging es wieder runter und noch 2h weiter. Morgen kommen wir dann den höchste Pass der Welt ein Stück näher.Read more

    Khangsar - Annapurna Day 6 (End)

    October 25, 2015 in Nepal

    (3700m) 24 km travelled. After descending from Milarepa's Cave and the glacier at Annapurna III (which sits at the base of the peak around 4300m), my cross-continental comrades and I took a quick lunch at the New Yak Hotel in Bhraka village then departed for Khansar via Manang. Thanks to our unwillingness to grab our maps from our packs, what could have been a simple trek on well-travelled foot and bike paths quickly became a challenging trek around the bases of eroded Himalayan peaks. Nonetheless, the wrong-Northwest turn away from Manang turned out to be a strenuous albeit significant shortcut to our target destination. Tomorrow we will continue onward toward Tilicho Lake (4900m+).Read more

    Tilicho Lake Base Camp - Day 7 (End)

    October 26, 2015 in Nepal

    (4100m) 9 km travelled. A half day of being on the move from Khangsar came to an end at the New Tilicho Lake Base Camp, a four hour, 800 meter climb shy of Tilicho Lake (Tal). Tomorrow will be a treat, as the 800 meter climb will be capped off by an afternoon at one of the highest mountain lakes in the world.
