The Chogo Lungma crossing .... 150km across the High Karakorum

(with an extra fleece and a paraglider)

7pm on Saturday 24 January EICA, Ratho Cost £10 on the door

John Silvester, a UK climber who is now more famous for his paragliding exploits, will be giving an illustrated talk in the Lecture Theatre at Ratho.

He'll be talking about the last 10 years of Himalayan Paragliding exploration in and around some of the classic 7 and 8,000m peaks, imcluding the circumnavigation of Nanga Parbat.

However, the main topic will be a recent 150km crossing of the High Karakorum - a paragliding variation on the ultimate mountain trek, the Hispar/snow lake traverse.

An umissable opportunity to see the Himalaya from a new perspective.
