The last part of our serial about the climb up of tandem Czech climbers Radek Jaroš and Jan Trávníček we had compiled from text messages that almost daily came to the Czech Republic.
It is the end of April and snowing and snowing. Stuck in the base camp and try to kill time. We wait until the weather will be better and so we read, drink coffee, smoke. I remember the past month full of experiences.
After two rest days in BC, where was necessary to do puja (religious ceremony), we decided to try to climb the wall Lhotka to C III in about 7300 m.
4.10 2012: Even one year wasn’t gone and I'm here again! This time I do not want on any peak which rises (actually they are hidden) above the largest world's camp. And most importantly, this time I am not alone here.
Remember, how I came back from Gasherbrumu (2009), as I said that ASI has nowhere to "an eight" will not go? Do you remember how I came back from Manaslu (2011), as I said SURE to "an eight" it will not go? ... Annapurna Expedition 2012 ...
Last trip in Nepal took us to Bakthapur, where we had break on the way from a two-day trek in Shivapuri National Park back to Kathmandu. It is a city (like a suburb of Kathmandu), which is part of the World Heritage List.

Apple pie was still quite good, but the pudding, which was to be involved and who brought us next to the bowl, it was almost inedible. Another course, chocolate pudding tasted like hot chocolate because it was not at all th
After climbing to the saddle, the highest point of our journey, we declined to Bimtang village and there spent the night. The next day long descent waited for us and overcoming long distances, so it was advisable to set off quite early. In the morning Hari annoyed us, because he walked around and looked significantly at his watch, as we already should leave.
The peak of our journey around Manaslu we left behind. Now if only we had way down and it was much worse than the previous climb. We had to go down is infinitely long and steep downhill. The road was covered with stones and gravel, so it was necessary to look under the feet, to don’t slip on the wrong terrain. Soon we got bored and more over we were finishing the water.
