Hansen Rasmus Valentin, is a young Danish mountaineer who recently was on the mission to Island Peak 6189m in Nepal with Explore Himalaya. He was among the Himalayas in the Everest region for 3 weeks. He loved mountains and hence he was quite a fast mountaineer, in acclimatizing the altitudes. On October 9, he arrived at Kathmandu and the next day, he was trekking to Monjo after landing at Lukla Airport.

Island Peak is the classic 6000m+ mountain in the Khumbu region which is very close to Everest.Hansen took enough time to go around the major mountain points in the region. He was at the Gokyo Ri 5360m on 18 October, 2012. He had the absolute adventurous fun in the Himalayas amongst the snow and the mysteries in there. He made his way towards Kalapattar. Kalapattar means a Black stone in Nepalese language. Kalapattar 5545m is the place where the highest altitude cabinet meeting was held in December 4, 2011.
Usual view in the Himalayas but a very rare view in other parts of the world.
Hansen was in no rush to summit the Island Peak. He trekked towards the Pokalde Peak (Dolma Ri) 5806m on October 23. Pokalde Peak is 12 kilometers southeast to Everest and is the easiest mountain in the Everest region to climb. Unfortunately, because of some technical problems Mr. Hansen had to let go this opportunity to summit the Pokalde Peak. Mr. Hansen now wanted to go towards the Island Peak. So, he was at Island Peak Base Camp at October 26.
Fascinating destination: Himalayas.
After a day rest at the base camp, Hansen was again unfortunate on his mission to summit the Island Peak so on October 28 he started trekking down to Lukla . He relaxed for a day each at Lukla and Kathmandu after the long tiring mountaineering expedition. On November 4, he was way back to his home. Explore Himalaya felt very sorry for him.
