Members of ‘Pristina’ climbing club have reached the highest peak in Europe, Mount Blanc. They have risen for the very first time Kosov’s flag in this peak.

After a dangerous and tiring climb, which lasted three and a half days, 12 climbers from Kosovo have descended in Chamonix, a tourist resort in the French Alps.

Leader of the club, Nazmi Hasanramaj, told IBNA that this expedition went well and without any incidents.

One of the guides of this exhibition, Qendrim Sopi, said that all the challenges encountered during the climb were successfully overcome, because all the members worked as a team.

The joint objective of reaching the peak, made climbers more resistant to low temperatures too.

Mount Blanc is 4810 meters high and as such, it’s known to be one of the highest peaks in the Alps and in Europe. /ibna/
