The national record for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro without shoes
Marina Nagel (Germany) and Gennady Puzankevich (Belarus) climbed up to the Uhuru Peak, the highest peak in Africa, Kilimanjaro massif, on the program of 7 Summits Club. Natalia Lavretzkay also was with them in the expedition, but she did not reach the top. The usual route, but it was not quite normal ascent. The fact is that Gennady did it in slippers on his bare feet. Not for the sake of records, not to impress someone. He always walks barefoot and followed his tradition on Kilimanjaro. Mountain shoes were in a backpack.
Gennady Puzankevich – in general, is an outstanding person, with a unique profession - he taxidermist makes stuffed animals. But the main thing - the whole way of his life on nature and his own style in all...
