Getting ready for higher places

25.06.2012


For better acclimatization, we decided to hike up to 4200m and spend the night there.
All of us didn't have any problems with the altitude and after a nice self cooked dinner we had a good rest.
In the morning we unpacked our gliders and took off for an amazing flight down into the valley.

But the day has just started and after a short break we went up to the take off again for a nice thermal flight.

Concerning the flying here, today was the highlight so far!
Cloudbase was at about 5800m and we could fly close to the impressive north face of Rakaposhi (7788m)!
