https://www.montagna.tv/cms/133128/matrimonio-allama-dablam-per-lalpinista-davide-chiesa/ -- Wedding on Ama Dablam for alpinist Davide Chiesa
Orange flowers for the mountaineer Davide Chiesa who married his Renata at the foot of the Ama Dablam . Before the ceremony the two bride and groom have climbed the mountain; the first time at such a high altitude for her, who approached the highlands only a few years ago. A passion that was galeotta, in fact that's how they met.

Unfortunately, the first Himalayan peak did not enjoy it because of the cold. But so much satisfaction and happiness, but that was nothing compared to the later: in the village of Pamboche David and Renata were married with a Buddhist rite . " Besides, what's more beautiful than getting married under a sacred mountain after climbing it?

Finding a safe route up on our main objective, the unclimbed Khangri Shar 6811 m, was easier said than done. Google earth only give you an idea of the mountain. To climb it, you can't plan from a living room with wi-fi, you actually have to live the real world. Believe it or not!
