The helicopter flight

Finally our eagerly awaited flight day has come. In the morning, after carefully weighting us and our luggage so as not to  overload the machine we took off.

The flight itself takes around 45 minutes. At first it goes over green valleys, which slowly give way to grey and brown hills and moraines. Later surrounding peaks grow taller and covered with snow while valleys are filled with glaciers. Helicopter has to go between mountains. From afar we can see the goal of my expedition – the northernmost seven-thousanders. Soon we land at our detination – the South Inylchek Base Camp at 4000m.
