In August 2014, a 4 strong expedition of Austrian Alpine Club members embarked on an expedition to a so far hardly explored area. In her talk about the expedition, Edith focuses on pre-trip planning, Base Camp life, important considerations and of course, the stunning Kyrgyz mountains and how the expedition climbed many so far unclimbed peaks. Over the course of 17 days, they climbed many summits of various difficulty, were invited to the yurts of local shepherds, observed the local wildlife (amongst it Marco Polo sheep and eagles) and tasted local delicacies before returning home with bags full of wonderful memories.
