Ireneusz Szpot / HIMALAYAS
An entrepreneur from Swarzędz with a drive for sports and traveling. So far, he has been to over 148 countries on 7 continents. He loves running (and has run over 50 marathons in his life), triathlons and mountains. He is the first Polish person to have done all the Seven Summits, and the first Pole to have completed marathons on all 7 continents.
“Even though I have been there a few times already, it is always a huge pleasure to reminisce about those magnificent views that I was able to admire in Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital, as well as at Base Camp on the trail to Mount Everest.”
I recommend to all who are thirsty for amazing views of the highest mountain in the world, and also like communing with fantastic inhabitants of this area, an expedition there. Every average player in hiking will really come to Base Camp. A more ambitious opportunity to test your strength may be the start in the marathon run, organized annually on 29 May with the start in Base Camp, and the finish line in Namche Bazaar – the capital of the Sherpas. For daredevils from Base Camp it is much closer to the summit of Mount Everest. So …? All will surely remember the landing and take-off at the most dangerous airport in the world – in Lukla. And all this combined with the unbelievable views of the menacing Himalayas. Menacing, but most of all, beautiful. I would highly recommend.”
