XC Bivouac ROMANIA 2017 – we’re going for Dracula

Romania is not as far as Kyrgyzstan, but offers an interesting mix of nature and human nature, which always reminds me Kyrgyzstan. Thanks to the ease of transport will experience more flying and yet we can afford to reduce the overall duration of the event a few days.

CHARGING

And all the electronic toys need some “juice” and it´s nice when you don’t have to carry several chargers and you can use one for all. How you will mix them is just up to you. Another possibility is to use a solar charger but so far I didn’t need it. Minimalism is the way!

SHIVLING – Indie 2013

We knew the area Himachal Pradesh (in the south of Himalayas) before, my friend Ďuro and I were flying there in 2002 pretty intense 10 days and the atmosphere was simply gorgeous.

From RAKAPOSHI to K2 – Pakistan 2011

For that year we prepared an extremely interesting but also unpredictable track in Northern Pakistan – a bivouac flight from Nanga Parbat to K2. It sounds wild, and it also was. We were putting off this project for 2 years for safety reasons but we still believed that one day there will be peace finally and we will devote to flying around the highest peaks of the world.

ARGENTINA 2007

The Arentina and her always windy Andes – that was a challenge for which we really looked forward. We chose an approach from the north to the south, started in a small town Salta we gradually struggled all means of transport to Mendoza and a little further below.

The foothils of TIAN SHAN – Kyrgyzstan 2006

This year we wanted to continue in our last track and fly around Yssyk Kull Lake in northern Kyrgyzstan, in the mountain range Tian Shan. In a team composed of Karel Vrbenský, Juraj Kleja and Dalibor Carbol we had to deal with hard conditions caused by the windy mountains always surrounded by thunderstorms on the southern and northern shores of Issyk Kull.

From SUUSAMYR to ISSYK KUL – Kyrgyzstan 2004

Another expedition in Kyrgyzstan where we also dedicated to bivouac flying. This time we were just two – Dalibor Carbol a Karel Vrbenský – focusing on a flight from the Suusamyr Valley to Yssyk Kull. We brought a video camera for a first time to record this interesting performance and beautiful experience. Without any ground support.
