Trekking at university sports in the Himalayan states

The height of the mountain range creates a special thermal effect due to the altitude, which influences the entire weather in Southeast Asia.

The national park extends south-west of Mt. Everest over an area of ​​1148 km2 and reaches from 2845 m altitude up to Mt. Everest at 8848 m. [8] The ice-covered area is estimated to be around 400 km2 and takes up around a third of the park (Fig. 5). 32% of it is covered with rubble. According to an estimate from 2009, the number of glaciers is 278, with the 40 largest glaciers covering around 70% of the area. In no other area of ​​the Hindu Kush Himalayan region are there so many glacial lakes, the total number of which amounts to 624, most of which are by far below the glacial ice. The entire glacier area extends from around 4300 m to over 8000 m. [9]

It was known that tigers reside on the mountain slopes of Bhutan. In 2010 it turned out that they venture much higher than one would have thought. Puzzled by reports from panicked residents, wildlife expert Alan Rabinowitz and a BBC film crew visited the said place at over 4,000 meters above sea level. There, in addition to foxes, monkeys, snow leopards and black bears, a tiger couple actually went into the camera trap. To protect it from poachers, the exact location remains a secret

In addition to Nepal, the mysterious kingdom of Bhutan is opening up more and more to visitors. If you want to go on a trekking tour here in a group, it is best to book through a well-known tour operator. Individual travelers must book through one of Bhutan's registered travel companies

It goes from New Delhi to the mountains and after a short acclimatization to be silent for 7 days with a view of the mountains, afterwards it goes a few days to the yoga city Rishikesh

Basically, the cause of the shrinking glaciers can be assumed to be rising temperature, lower precipitation or increasing solar radiation.

The summit of Kailash has never been climbed, not even by Reinhold Messner, even though he was the first person to receive a permit to climb it in 1985. In Tibet Messner said that only those who are free from all sin could do it.

A mountaineer from Baden-Wrttemberg who has been missing in the Himalayas for months has also been found dead in Nepal according to a media report. The police discovered the body of the 53-year-old man in a remote area of ​​the Rukum district in the west of the country and identified the German based on his passport, the newspaper The Himalayan reported on Tuesday. The man comes from Salem, said a police spokesman in Friedrichshafen. He went on a trekking tour in Nepal in October, but never returned from there. Relatives of the mountaineer then started searches, but they were unsuccessful.

During the cold periods between Kangchendznga in the east and Nanga Parbat in the west, there was a coherent valley glacier, i.e. a network of ice streams, in the 2500 km long Himalayan arc. In the west, the Himalayan glaciers had contact with the ice stream network of the Karakoram and in the north with the Tibetan inland ice. These centrally located trunk or outlet glaciers ended below 2000m. M. and in places even below 1000m above sea level in the Himalayan foreland. This applied to the Tamur Khola-, Arun-, Dhud Koshi Nadi-, Tamba Kosi-, Bo Chu (Sun Kosi) -, Langtang (Trisuli Khola) -, Buri Gandaki-, Marsyangdi Nadi-, Madi Khola-, Seti Khola- , Modi Khola-, Thak Khola-, Mayangdi (Myagdi) Khola-, Barbung-Bheri Khola-, Gohna Nala-, Nandakini Nala-, Alaknanda Nala-, Mandakini Nala-, Bhagirathi Nala-, Solang Nala- (Kullu Valley) - , Tori Valley, Triund Valley and Indus glaciers. [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [ 23] While the current valley glaciers of the Himalayas are at most 20 to 32 km long, some of the mentioned main ice age glaciers were 60 to 112 km long. The glacier snow limit (ELA), as the height limit between the glacier narrow zone and the melting zone, was lowered by 1400 to 1660 meters in altitude compared to today. Under the condition of comparable precipitation conditions, this would result in an ice age temperature drop of at least 7 to 8.3C compared to today. However, it was probably drier and therefore colder. [24] [25] [26]

The Himalayas stretches from Central Asia, at the Khyber Pass on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan (highlands of Balochistan) and the Karakoram in Kashmir, along the border of India and the two Himalayan states of Nepal and Bhutan with Tibet (China), to the south-bent Patkai Mountains between Assam (India) and Myanmar and the Hengduan Mountains, the southern flank of the eastern flank of the Tibetan highlands. It separates South Asia from the rest of the continent, with countries bordering Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, China, Nepal, Bhutan and Myanmar. We organize our trekking tours in Nepal

Ten of these mountains are in the Himalayas and four in the adjacent Karakoram. They are spread over the countries of India, Nepal, Pakistan and China with its autonomous provinces of Tibet (Himalaya) and Xinjiang (Karakoram). Five eight-thousanders lie entirely in one country: the Nanga Parbat in Pakistan, the Shisha Pangma in China and Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu in Nepal. The other nine mountains are based in two different countries. China has a total of nine eight-thousanders, Nepal eight, Pakistan five and India one (Kangchendznga).

The Himalaya is the highest point on the earth's surface, but not the most distant place on the earth's surface

The national park extends southwest of Mt. Everest over an area of ​​1148 km2 and reaches from 2845 m altitude up to Mt. [8] The ice-covered area is estimated to be around 400 km2 and takes up around a third of the park (Fig. 5). 32% of it is covered with rubble. According to an estimate from 2009, the number of glaciers is 278, with the 40 largest glaciers covering around 70% of the area. In no other area of ​​the Hindu Kush Himalayan region are there so many glacial lakes, the total number of which amounts to 624, most of which are by far below the glacial ice. The entire glacier area stretches from about 4300 m to over 8000 m. The mean glacier height is 5720 m and should therefore be the highest in the world. [9]

In the case of the cheap offers, you have to pay extra for various additional services. If you need oxygen, you add around 2,500 euros for five bottles, a personal Sherpa costs around 5,500 euros extra. In response to the growing mountains of rubbish on the roof of the world, the Nepalese government is now demanding a rubbish deposit of 4 from every member of the expedition.

753 climbers died on the eight-thousanders after accidents or serious illnesses such as acute altitude sickness. Then come the K2 with 77 and the Nanga Parbat with 66 deaths. The fewest deaths occurred at Gasherbrum II at 19, Lhotse at 20 and Broad Peak at 23 (as of February 2009)
