Expedition to Nepal for the need of children in demand.
On September 26, Benedikt Böhm set out on a new expedition, which leads him to Dolpo, in the northwest of Nepal. The goal is the westernmost peak of the elongated Dhaulagiri Himal Gerbirgskette, the 7246 meter high Hiunchuli plaster, also called Dhaulagiri VII. He is considered a rewarding and technically relatively easy to handle ski mountain. Whether the long approach and the general seclusion of the region, the Dhaulagiri VII is not crowded. The normal route is over the north side, with the low-cliff northwest flank suitable for ascent with skis.
As usual, Benedikt will be on the road in speed-ski style, this time to support a privately initiated school project together with the association Nepal-Medical-Careflight. In less than eight hours Böhm wants to conquer the 7246 meter high summit at 4930 meters above sea level in a train from the base camp – and then ski back to the base camp.
