Hierna volgt het complete verhaal van hun expeditie in de WEBLOG
From 18th september until 25th October the Himlung 2008 expedition took place with Dutchman Twan van Bakel and Philip Verheye from Belgium as expedition participants. A trekking of ten days brought them, together with a Nepalese team with Sherpa Pemba, to basecamp at 4840m. From BC a total of 3 camps were setup and supplied. After the acclimatisation was completed the summit push was started. From camp 3 at 6400m the small team climbed succesfully to the summit in seven cold hours. Twan van Bakel became with this succesfull summit the first Dutch to climb this 7000 peak in the Himalaya.
