Base Camp Makalu

Expedition / Makalu

Makalu

In April-May 2014, Mike and fellow Swiss climber Fred Roux will attempt to climb the world’s 5th highest peak, Makalu. Makalu is located in a remote section of Himalayas on the Nepal-China, about 20 km south of Everest.

Expedition / Pangaea

Pangaea

Why the name ‘Pangaea’? Pangaea is defined as a “hypothetical super-continent that included all the landmasses of the earth before the Triassic Period”. Then Pangaea broke apart during the Triassic and Jurassic Periods and formed what we now know as the Earth’s separate continents. Mike Horn chose the name Pangaea for his new expedition as […]

Expedition / Himalaya Expedition

Himalaya Expedition

I’ve always had a fascination for mountaineering, but never actually got around to it seriously. Then an unexpected phone-call from legendary climbers Jean Troillet, Fred Roux and Olivier Roduit quickly changed this. They invited me to join them to climb four Himalayan summits of 8000m – an offer I excitedly could not refuse and we […]

Expedition / North Pole Winter Night

North Pole Winter Night

My expedition in January 2006 gave new meaning to the term ‘walking on thin ice’. It was an exciting and daunting new challenge. But one I could not do alone by law. Thankfully, renowned Norwegian arctic explorer, Borge Ousland took little convincing and joined me in a heartbeat. Together, we’d walk to the North Pole […]

Final Report from K2 – On Turning Back from “the Mountain of Mountains.”

July 28, 2015

We are back down from our summit attempt. Last night I was sitting in front of my tent looking up at the mountain that stamped its effect on my life. Base camp is not exactly where we want to be, but I am satisfied that we gave it our best shot. Even more important, we […]

Russian Generosity

May 20, 2015

While cruising between Volgograd and Astrakhan, our last destination before crossing the Kazak border, my mind keeps reflecting back to our short yet rich experience crossing the Russian territories. There is something unique about this nation that makes it all the most intriguing. From the window of the G500, I had quite some time to […]
