PSG and ACEX at the Top of the Himalayas
On May 3, 2017 the flags of ACEX and PSG (ACEX member in Kazan) were raised at the highest tracking peaks of Nepal from where it is possible to see the panorama of five of the six highest mountains in the world: Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu.
The track lasted 10 days.
“The preparation for the ascent took place in severe conditions, - tells Airat Bilalov. – Wind, wet snow, lack of visability and oxygen. But… “The harder the training, the easier the mission”.
Although Mera Peak is not Everest and no other hard-to-reach peak, the ascent is carried out by the same scenario.
The track to the peak started at 02:30 a.m., when the road was illuminated by the headlamps and bright light of stars and the moon. The temperature on the way to Mera Peak was equal to - 19 Celsius degrees.
Having overcome 10 km along the glacier with cracks and breaks in the condition of lack of oxygen (at the height of 6000 meter its content in the air is equal to only 44% from the normal), by 7.30 a.m. Airat Bilalov and his group reached one of the most majestic peaks of the Himalayas.
The Director of ACEX Kazan will not stop at the achieved results: “We came back from Nepal where we managed to reach Mera Peak (6470 m). In June the team of 10 people (7 of which are PSG specialists) is planning to climb the highest peak of Europe – Elbrus. We have already chosen the route and the preparation for journey is in process. I am sure that such events unite the team even more than corporate parties or different trainings.”
We invite each Alliance member and partner to test his strength of mind in natural conditions and join the initiative of colleagues from Kazan and reach the “peaks where you have not been before”.
