on a great day - congratulations!
The huge broad massive in the left background, is that Kangchendzönga?
No, it's Kula Kangri : see here for more explanations. Kangchenjunga is much more on the right (not visible on this picture).
I see, thanks - what is it's altitude?
Kula Kangri is 7538m and Karjiang is 7221m. The latter is still unclimbed, even if some serious attempts have been made.
thanks for the information.
I see you have currently access to the www, so I would be very grateful if you could
post about your experiences last week. I guess you have also been expelled from Tibet ... if so, keep your chin up ...
I wasn't expelled until a week ago. The mountains were safe from PSB, but when I arrived in civilization, to a normally open city, I let my guard down for a second. Big mistake. They got me and kicked me out. Will go back. Can't give up a good plan.
Later on, when not in such a precarious situation I'll add a lot of info about many climbs from this period.
The central Himalaya stretch out in the background? What a remarkable Range of peaks. Nope, I don't have the funds to fly there right now! I'm still enjoying the desert, and waiting for my wife to come back from the Philippines. You take care!!!
Yes, it's the central Himalaya in the background. Thanks for the interest.
If I could only imagine how one could live upon those frozen peaks....the photo enhances my mind to think beyond the moment...thanks for sharing your photo.
Thanks for the comment.
It's really something special to be up there on those high Himalayan peaks and look at the rest of the world far below.
