ITC “Asia Mountains” received an interesting offer from the ICR (International Centre of Roerich) to bring the flag of Peace to two seventhousanders (Muztagh Ata in China and Lenin Peak in Kyrgyzstan). Initially, the flag has gone to Muztagh Ata 7546m. In the frames of “Roerich Pact – Path to the Future” project to the summit was brought a capsule with childrens’ wishes intended to be found by future generations. Children wished peace, happiness and prosperity.
In Bishkek’s office of “Asia Mountains” gathered participants of the international expedition to Muztagh Ata peak. Others joined in Kashgar. The way to the top runs through the normal route on the most northern slope, it’s almost a direct route to the top, without any technical difficulties with the exception of crevices and icefall between the heights of 5600 and 6100 m. Some participants made the ascent to the summit on skis or snowshoes.
This season’s successful ascent to Muztagh Ata peak 7546m under the leadership of Sergei Filatov, made Igor Belskikh, Juan De Dios Bolanos, Mathias Jean Rene Kempf, Alexandre Marchal, Dr. Buckwitz, Detlef Volker, as well as Peter Danis under guiding of Pavel Vorobiev.
Already in the second half of the summer flag of the Peace has gone to the Pamirs, Lenin Peak. Responsible for the raising of the flag and the capsule to the Summit was Oleg Turaev and a group of German climbers. Together with the German climber Iris Enzian, Oleg has made a successful ascent to Lenin Peak (7134m). At the top was a capsule with a message for future generations. They raised the flag of Peace over Pamir Mountains and then it was sent it back to Moscow.
The whole team of “Asia Mountains” was pleased to participate in such action, and bring to the top the flag of Peace and capsules with messages for future generations. We express our deep gratitude for the confidence to ICR in Moscow.
