Cho Oyu 2008 is also a trek flanked to the expedition that will reach with the same route the Advanced Base Camp (5.720 m) and then continue to discover the places, cultures and peoples who live up there, between Tibet and Nepal, in a challenging but equally fascinating journey.
In relation to "Cho Oyu 2008" a number of medical-sporting tests will be carried out by the medical components of the group.

Our activity on Cho Oyu will also see us involved the first ever trial of a new medical aid device, which we will try out in an extreme environment.

A “solidarity” project related to schools is currently being defined with Nepalese organisations.
pietrabismantova The Appennino Reggiano (the mountains of the Province of Reggio Emilia) is our land and when one speaks about his/her own land at times there is a risk of exaggerating with the amount of praise. If it should happen, take it as just a symptom of affection, because the sky under which you are born tends to always be a better shade of blue than any other sky. Well, almost.

Even if the Reggio Emilia mountain range is not the Himalayas (oh no, it definitely isn’t), it is certainly a beautiful, fascinating and pleasurable place. A unique location, in terms of sites, sky-lines and complexion, starting from the strange and enormous stone called Pietra Bismantova, which was put there who knows how and who knows when.
