It was such a sweet revenge coming back there and finally make it. A dream fullfilled.

|Can't even imagine how difficult planning and executing this must have been.|

|The planning was actually not that hard. We got our bikes, got good maps, bought the provisions and went. The execution was difficult, but also very rewarding. Such beautiful surroundings and the journey to the peak was a great experience in itself.|

|Are you the first people to ever make the summit?|

Yes we were the first ever on Kangzhagri's summit. It's always a special feeling.

|You are a true adventurer. Congratulations on your success. I consider Gannet Peak in Wyoming at 13,800 feet, with a 23 mile approach and about a five-day round trip hike, too hard. For you, that would probably be an easy walk through the woods! However, I hope you will visit the U.S. and with your abilities see the beauty of the Western U.S. by taking on our most difficult mountains. I think after you went through Kangzhagri, you can easily climb any difficult desolate mountains in the U.S. with ease.|

Some peaks in North America are probably also very difficult to reach. To battle your way through dense forests with a heavy backpack can be very hard. I have no experience of climbing in the U.S., but I know what the woods and nature of northern Canada can be like. Tough.

|for the story, it was a glimpse back to what this all used to be about. Discovery, isolation and personal discipline. |
Very proud of you both, you have my respect.
