Jobo Garu 2017 Expedition. A rope on the Roof of the World

Team Explora ready to install Via Ferrata. Everything ok for the Jagat aqueduct

World’s eyes on the Himalayas where the Italian expedition of Team Explora Nunaat International is ready for the completion of the “Via Ferrata Drolambau Ice Fall”, at a height of 5000 to 5400 m.

On yesterday’s day, the steel ropes of the ferrata were brought to the height and will be mounted on tomorrow’s day.

“Thanks to the local Sherpa community and in particular at Phurba Tenjing Sherpa, we are going to make the first ferry in Rolwaling,” said Davide Peluzzi.

It is the first Himalayan iron railroad and will connect the glacier slope to the Himalayan High Hope that will be built on Tashi Lapcha.

Explora Nunaat International’s work is also focusing on the forgotten villages of Rolwaling, where for years Explora has also taken concrete steps in building an aqueduct at Jagat.

The Jagat aqueduct was rebuilt thanks to the intervention of Team Explora two years ago after the terrible earthquake that caused massive damage and many deaths in April 2015 and totally destroyed it.

Today the Jagat aqueduct is perfectly functional and also provides the local school that is attended by 470 children.

Team Explora is composed of Davide Peluzzi (head of shipping), Giorgio Marinelli (Deputy Chief of Shipping), Phurba Tenjing Sherpa, Marco Di Marcello (Biologist), Paolo Cocco (Photographer), Giuseppe de Angelis (Logistics), Marco Sazzini (Molecular Laboratory UniBo). And, from Italy, Roberto Madrigali (Weather) and Carmela Modica (Press).

Jobo Garu 2017 Expedition is sponsored by Intermatica, Mico Sport, and Persia Construction.

Explora Nunaat International is a non-profit exploration and research association in extreme environments born in 2007. In 2008, on the occasion of the Polar International Year, the Association was rewarded for shipping to Arctic (Greenland) with a medal and with a letter of commendation signed by the President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano. In 2011, the Association carried out humanitarian expeditions in Himalayas, called Earth Mater. On that occasion, cooperation with the Government of Nepal was initiated. On November 9, 2011, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Association and the Government of Nepal, represented by Undersecretary of Culture Jaya Ram Shestha, in the water, health and tourism sectors in the project called “Nepal – Gaurishankar 2013” .

A team of Explora Nunaat International went to Nepal in October 2015 with the Italian Expedition “Extreme Malangur 2015” that reached the sacred mountains of the Himalayas in search of the Yeti.

During the expedition, “Extreme Malangur Expedition 2015” was aided in the villages of Singati-Jagat-Simigaon and Beding-Na.

The Explora Nunaat International Association has been working for years in the field of science and humanitarian cooperation in areas of the Earth Planet considered “wild”.
