Although haunted by bad luck, we made a short but beautiful trek in the Fann Mountains of Tajikistan, August 2018
A trek from Tusheti to Khevruseti — or from Omalo to Shatili via Atsunta pass — in the Georgian Caucasus. July 2017.
Three weeks on the Island of La Réunion, France of the Indian Ocean. September/October 2016.
Тескей Ала-Тоо, 天山 , which is Teskey Ala-Too, Tien Shan. A trek over quite a few high passes, based from Karakol on the shores of Issyk Köl Lake, Kyrgyzstan. August-September 2014.
A reprise of our trek to Solo Khumbu, but this time in the onset of the Himalayan winter. Walking from lodge to lodge, carefully maintaining dining room ovens, with Christmas by the feet of the Everest. Returning taking a high route via Cho La and Gokyo. December 2013.
After the Milford Track, we followed two renowned tracks on the New Zealand’s Southern Island, Routeburn and Dart, with an excellent base in Kinloch by the shores of the overwhelming Lake Wakatipu. November 2011.
Making an individual slot reservation almost a year before, we finally managed to make the all-too-famous Milford Track on the Southern Island of New Zealand in relatively fine weather. November 2011.
A classical round trip in the central Ethiopia, by plane, by jeep and by foot: Addis Ababa, Lalibela, Axum and walking in Tigre, a trek in the Simien Mountains, Gondar, the Lake Tana and the Blue Nile. October/November 2010.
A few drops of rain and the desert between the bare sandstone ridges of Wadi Rum is full of blossoming flowers, a welcome fodder for camels. An excursion by jeep and by foot to the majestic mountain ridges raging out of the desert sands on the border between Saudi Arabia and Jordan. March 2010.
Just three backpacks. An extraordinarily rewarding, long and hard trek around the Manaslu Himal with crossing of Larkya La as the key of the route. Simply beautiful, the very essence of a Himalayan trek in Nepal. The contrast of joining for the last walking days the overcrowded trail around Annapurnas could not be larger… However, two soothing days in beautiful Bandipur brought us back to the balance. October/November 2009.
Following the classical route of the trek around the Jebel Toubkal, finalised with climbing the very top of the mount. In addition a road trip from Marrakech over the Atlas passes to Ait Benhaddou and towards Sahara — and a day and a night in Marrakech. April/May 2008.
Tempted by a trekking agency in Leh, we have taken a monk(!) as a horseman with two beasts of burden for a trek from Ladakh through Zanskar over a novel route. Ended up joining a larger group from the same agency and trying to realise our (novel) route against all odds — and it was an exceptionally rainy summer in Ladakh & Zanskar. After reaching Phuktal Gompa it was finally all new too us — until the Leh-Manali road. August 2006.
