I have a Polish friend of mine, Maciej Besta, who is a climber, mountain trekker, hiker and… student. Last summer he and his friend trekked the Chersky Range in Yakutia, Siberia/Russia. A great fellow, who loves expeditions at the unknown, less explored or off-beaten places.
In December of 2010, he was trekking across Deant du Geant Glacier. Take a look at the above picture. Great, isn’t it? Looks extremely cold and like a great challenge. My god, wish to do the same one day!
Just in a couple of month, Maciej completed the hiking expedition to Mount Narodnaya, the highest peak of the Ural Mountains, Russia.
