On these days off, I recommend watching two thrilling movies about mountain climbing on Netflix Everst top and the 14 eight thousand. The first is a classic that recounts the events that took place in 1996 in the midst of the boom in commercial expeditions on Everest, these expeditions are expeditions made up of people who have no experience in the mountains but who pay about $65,000 to the companies that have done them. Provide them with logistics, equipment and Sherpas to attempt to climb to the top of Everest. For the 1996 climbing season, two companies facing commercially raising the maximum number of clients to the summit were Consultants of Adventure and Locos por la Aventura, two companies that were run by two of the most famous and respected upland mountain guides. Global Himalayans, Rob Hall in Adventure Consultants and Scott Fischer at Crazy About Adventure, these guides had the responsibility to lift their clients to the summit of Everest and, most importantly, get them back safely to base camp, with the result at the end of May 11, 1996, there were 5 dead on the mountain Including trip guides Scott Fisher and Rob Hall, what happened, what mistakes they made, and how some clients miraculously survived are all this thrilling story in the movie. Everst top.
The second movie I recommend is called 14 eight thousand, is a documentary film that tells the story of a Nepalese guide and Sherpa, Nimsday Purga, who attempts to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world in seven months, to put them in the context of this challenge. Everest, but there is also, for example, K2, the second highest mountain in the world and considered the most difficult, Nanga Parbat, known as the killer mountain because of the large number of people who died for its conquest and by the way this mountain was obsessed by the Nazis to be the first to reach its summit, or Mount Manaslu where the Colombian Lenin Granados died in 1998 when the Colombian expedition was preparing to make the first ascent to Everest, as I said there are 14 peaks more than eight thousand meters high. The first to climb them was the Italian Reinhold Messner who was also the first human in 1978 with Peter Hapler to climb Everest without oxygen, Messner to climb 14 eight thousand It took 16 years, the second to climb them is the Polish legend Jerzy Kokochka, who took 10 years and who also climbed 14 eight thousand, opening new roads or in the winter, these two were the greatest people in the history of mountaineering in the world, that’s why you are considering doing a stretch 14 eight thousand Within 7 months it was an impossible task or ‘possible’ as Nimsdai Purja called his project, to see if it worked and how that project was, I invite you to see 14 eight thousand. For lovers of adventure and exploration, I invite you to follow friends mountain and adventure In social networks, @Montaña_aventura, who carry out excursions in Colombia and the world so that they can participate, in 2022 we can enjoy the nature of ecotourism and the mountains, a good start to this year for everyone.
