A summary of past and future personal expeditions
This expedition is a strong prerequisite to Everest. In terms of technicality Ama Dablam is considered harder than Everest.
Ama Dablam means „Mother’s necklace” as the long ridges on each side look like the arms of a mother protecting her child.
The first time I reached Island Peak’s summit was in 2016, now leading an International Expedition to summit the peak again.
Mt. Kilimanjaro is a good training for high altitude climbing, especially summiting it twice in a year: summer & winter ascent.
Challenging and unpredictable, the Mountain of the Soul will be my first +8,000er to summit and the start of reaching my dream.
