Nov 7, 2016 - Konec se blíží

V noci zase nemuzu spat. Budim se neco po pulnoci a nemuzu usnout. Po nekonecne dlouhem cekani na usnuti nakonec jeste na nejakou hodku usnu. Rano jsou vsichni uplne mrtvi. Dzos s Mildou bojuji s vyskovou nemoci, ja s kolenem. To se po sestupu z Kala Pattaru trochu zhorsilo.‎ Behem snidane se jeste dozvidame, ze pro Spanela, ktereho jsme potkali drive (a ktery si ziskal me sympatie predevsim tim, ze ocenil muj vystup na Kala Pattar s poranenym kolenem slovy "you are superman":-) ), ‎leti vrtulnik. Na vrcholu Kala Pattaru mu vcera zacalo...

Nov 5, 2016 - I want you to see Everest aneb Jdu dál

Rano vstavam a hned kontroluju koleno. Stale je natekle, ale podstatne mene nez den pred tim. Ohebnost se take zlepsila, ale zadny zazrak. Po snidani jdu na kontrolu. Pani doktorku potkavam pred klinikou. Hned se pta, co a jak. Vysvetluji ji aktualni stav kolena. Behen toho jdeme do ordinace, kde se mi na koleno podiva, vyzkousi ohebnost a uzna, ze to je lepsi. Pak se zamysli a rika "I want you to see Everest" a navrhuje mi, abych zkusil jit dal. Jakoby mi cetla myslenky, jelikoz ja toto planoval. Vzdalenosti jsou ted uz pomerne male,...

May 9, 2013 - Day 11 Dingboche to Lobuche

Lobuche 4930m 4.75 hours I awoke at 5am however stayed in my “Walrus” sleeping bag until 6:30am, nice and cozy. Our pre-ordered breakfast was ready at 7am and by 7:30am we were on our way. The trail to Dughla at 4600m is fairly flat and a pleasant walk made more enjoyable listening to Tshiri, Ishower and Bikesh talking and laughing their heads off – what a great sound. Charles and Spencer were well ahead of us but they said they could hear their laughter carried by the wind. We arrived at Dughla much too early for lunch so had tea and...

Sep 16, 2012 - Separate Ways and Back to Basics

So I have had a fairly big shock - Sarah and I are going our separate ways after China, Sarah will be going Australia and I will be carrying on with the initial tour and going onto Thailand .. Luckily this day I had Internet and was able to Skype my mum from 4410m as I was very sad but having chatted things through I'm excited now to hit Thailand. I feel like I have gone back to basics with no hot showers, no electricity, sleeping on wooden beds, no phone signal, no heating and toileting wherever no-one can see you! I tell you I'm a changed...

Sep 23, 2011 - Lobuche

The weather has cut us some slack today, and the clouds have taken a break. The sun shines brightly on Mount Thamersku. Ama Dablam and Amphu Gyabjen are clearly visible. Buoyed, I dig into the Tibetian bread with yak butter for breakfast, and set off towards Lobuche. As we reach the chauthara located on top of the hill at the edge of Dingboche, we get some great sights towards the north-east. The Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, Peak 38, Holy peak, Island peak, and in the distance, Makalu. On the other side of the hill is Tabuche flanked by its...

Apr 4, 2011 - "To Diamox or not to Diamox...

..that is the question: whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous altitude. Or to take tablets against a sea of illnesses, and by Diamox end them?” As you can probably guess, the effectiveness and whether we should be taking the drug Diamox (properly Acetazolamide) has been the focus of the conversation amongst the group within the past day or so. Now if you are unaware, Diamox is a drug that helps the human body to acclimatise to high altitude and it has been a taboo subject up until now. Yesterday...

Apr 11, 2010 - Dingboche to Lobuche

Up, up & away to Lobuche (4900m). The "che" means village. We climbed out of Dingboche up a really steep hill (I know, I've said it before, but at this altitude it's getting really hard to go up these hills). At the top of the hill are memorials for people who have died. There is a really nice one for Scott Fisher. I decided to build a small memorial for my Dad who passed away 14 years ago. I left a little note for him too, and got totally emotional. The views are fabulous. These mountains are so majestic. We left "memorial hill" and walked...
