Project Himalaya Mt. Kang Guru (6981m) Expedition (October 2008)
This expedition was led by Phil Crampton and had eight members. The team had to abandon their summit attempt due to bad weather.
Compared to what we are used to, the services provided by the company, from the Finnish point of view felt like luxury. During our trip all went well and everything worked. Absolutely nothing to complain of!
