The Eiger Adventure Service Team will climb Mount Hkakabo Razi in Myanmar by 2020. Expedition teams from Indonesia's tropical outdoor outfitters and equipment brand on Wednesday announced plans to climb one of the most dangerous mountains in the world and will involve international climbers.

"Climbing Mount Hkakabo Razi is heavy, it takes 15-19 days through the forest to the base camp .. We want to Hkakabo Razi in 2020," said Arif Husein, Marketing Communications Manager Eigerindo Multi Industrial Products as the Eiger brand holder in a press conference, Wednesday.

Husein said Mount Hkakabo Razi or Hhakaborazi has a spectacular combination of tropical forests and snow. Climbing Mount Hkakabo Razi has been planned since 2014 and the Eiger has taken into account all the dangers during the mission. The team has created a steering committee and will be filled by 7 people from 7 countries and 7 communities.

"Ambition and prestige. Need preparation and awe. We want to climb internationally, we want to gain knowledge from other climbers," said Galih Donikara from Eiger Adventure Service Team.

"Hkakabo Razi is very interesting and dangerous in the northeastern end of the Himalayas and the jungle. This year we will survey to the starting point and cooperate between governments," Donikara said.

Mount Hhakaborazi (5,881 meters) is among the world's mountain of tropical and snow characteristics on the border of Myanmar and China. Some of the recorded climbers have made it to the top including Japanese climbers Takashi Ozaki in 1996 and Myanmar. Some time ago a Myanmar climber was missing in a climbing mission on the mountain.

This mountain has a logistical complexity of infrastructure scarcity causing climbers to struggle in the jungle for 20 days just to arrive at base camp. Hkakabo Razi has not been officially cited as the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, some say the highest mountain is Gamlang Razi.

"No one has managed to measure Hkakabo Razi's height," said U Paw Mint Yoo from Myanmar's Hiking and Mountain Federation.

Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park is a conservation area of 4,092 sq kilometers across with 120 kilometers along the northern edge of the Zambezi River in Lusaka Province, Zambia, declared in 1983 which was previously a private game reserve of the Zambian president. The park sits on the Zambezi floodplain and one of the few remaining wilderness areas in Africa.

The park has a sloping gentle topography from the Zambezi Escarpment to the Zambezi River with two major forest prairier ecoregions that are distinguished by two dominant tree species. The Miombo Forest (Brachystegia) in the higher ground in the north and and the Mopane Forest (Colophospermum mopane) on the lower slopes of the south are interspersed with white acacia (Faidherbia albida).


The Lower Zambezi Valley includes the Lower Zambezi National Park and Game Management Areas (GMA's) around it are rich in biodiversity. The banks of the river are flood plains mostly diasporus, ficus and other river species. Forests, wet…

El Paraíso

El Paraíso is a site of mysterious ruins built in the Late Preceramic or Cotton Preceramic period (3500-1800 BCE) or an aceramic site of 0.58 sq kilometers in Chillon River Valley, San Martín de Porres District, Lima Province, Peru . The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.

The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes…
