Location: Malchin ESE ridge (3740 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Mongolia      Date: 21-08-2011
This is a companion to my «Late Malchin» 9888 panorama.
It was shot few minutes later, while descending from the mountain at 07.40 pm.
After a rainy afternoon, that evening the sky was quickly returning to the standards that one expects in Mongolia, the "land of eternal blue sky" (möngke tengri). In illusory return, however, since in my next climb, the day after, I was going to be caught even by a snowstorm.

Now the GPS track of the ascent is also available
en.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=7179126
It was recorded two days after, in a further ascent, with weather again good.

11 vertical images, Canon G9, 35 mm equiv, 1/400 sec, f/7.1

Geniale Komposition und ein mächtiges Eismeer!

Works in slow progress...
Now fixed also this panorama, with text, labels and directions.
Thanks to all those who have voted and commented in advance.

Wolfgang: the history is indeed very simple, it is sufficient to know that the name of the mountain means «shepherd».

Your sheperd story is legendary - I remember it well!
