Longs Peak

Long Peak may not be the highest peak in Colorado, but it's definitely the most popular. Situated in the middle of Rocky Mountains National Park this mountain really dominates the sky, high above the neighboring mountains.

Thunderstorms on Maroon Peak

Aspen is worldwide famous because of skiing. The Maroon Bells are maybe less known by foreigners, but most Americans will recognize these peaks as the most beautiful in the States together with Denali, Mt Rainier and the Tetons.

Bali and Gunung Agung

Bali is certainly more than beautiful beaches and exciting nightlife. Bali also offer stunning sceneries with several volcanoes rising high above the lush green landscape and endless rice fields. In addition there are spectacular temples built on steep cliffs, and last but not least, Bali has a lot of art and culture to explore.

Death on Lobuche East

The first time I visited Nepal, in the autumn of 2000, I was mainly trekking at altitudes up to a maximum of 5.400 meters. When I returned to Nepal in the spring of 2001, I had only one wish; to get higher.

72 days of backpacking in India

India was the start of my 11 months of backpacking around the world. Even though some people advised me to choose an easier country to start with, I didn't listen. I probably had some regrets the first few days in India. But despite of all the hassles, my passion for India only grew day by day. I'll be back....
