Instead of several days of trekking on the "Roof of Africa" tourists will be able to get to the top by cable car for a few hours. The ability to easily rise to the top will attract twice as many tourists – this idea has fascinated Tanzanian politicians. the UIAA mountain and local organizations are concerned that such investments will be dangerous to life and health of tourists will damage the environment, and for guides and porters it means the loss of customers. Kilimanjaro, the highest, almost six thousand mountain in Africa, which is affectionately known as "Kili", is considered to be an easily achievable top. It often start your set collectors Crown Land (the highest tops of all continents). Kilimanjaro (photo: adveture24.pl)

If to be based on physiological timing of adaptation (for beginners) is recommended for the ascent of the Mont Blanc and Elbrus, it will be 14 - 16 days, respectively ( with a smooth or saw-tooth climb). In this case, altitude sickness will be mild or almost unnoticeable. If you wish to significantly reduce periods of ascent (the production is not allowed to miss more than 10 days, etc.) have to accept the fact that horn. The disease will occur in a severe form with risk of pulmonary edema and brain, or to go on luck (could be I have a genetic resistance to hypoxia) will be all right – I get up to the top, and if not – turn back.

On 29 may 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first who climbed Everest. Since then, the situation on the highest mountain in the world has changed dramatically. Commercial expeditions on Everest have become a lucrative business. Besides experienced mountaineers, to the top of the climb tourists who use oxygen equipment, porters and a well-developed infrastructure. A growing number of attempts and ascents to the top, and with them grows and the number of accidents with a fatal outcome. We present statistics of the spring season this year. Photo e-news.su

Good day, I want to share a not entirely successful experience of using the transport bag from a reputable company "Red Fox" in one In-not the shop I saw the bag and remembered how we'd missed him! running with iron and rope in a backpack at the train stations, and throwing off-putting on a heavy backpack on numerous framework with the passage of the inspection there was always a thought, but would feel more comfortable with a bag on wheels. Made my choice in favor of a volume of 70 l, so capacity is optimal, fit all of the iron, two ropes, shoes and something else from obwakabaka equipment, dimensions of the given volume of operation were the most comfortable width, height and length because in the reserved seat fits in any niche exactly and nothing...
