Only The Sky Above

Helga Hengge takes her audience to the summit of the highest mountain on Earth. Illustrated with spectacular photographs of her two-month long ascent via the North East ridge in Tibet, Helga shares her enthusiasm for the adventure of a great goal and for pushing physical and emotional boundaries in the face of challenge. She talks about the step-by-step ascent, the power of a team, dealing with setbacks, and about trusting your inner strength.

The highlight of her presentation is the ascent to the summit and the fulfillment of a great dream. The moment, when there is only the sky above.
