Mihnea Prundeanu. Alpinist. Geographer. Mountain Guide.

I love the mountains and the sports. I also love to travel, to discover the beauty of nature, to meet new people and learn about different cultures. My semi-nomadic lifestyle revolves around my family and my two passions: alpinism and geography, that have blended so well together. I believe that authentic alpinism means exploration, discovery of new ways of getting to the top, minimalist, fast and clean ascents and these are the values I try to reflect in my personal projects.

My passion for the mountains started when I was a child when I would often make small excursions around the city or go camping with the scouts. Since then I visited or guided expeditions in the Himalayas, Cordillera Blanca and other remote areas. When I am not involved in personal projects I enjoy sharing my passion for the mountains with those wishing to discover it. To get in touch, you can write at mihnea@mihneaprundeanu.com.

Chamonix & Mont Blanc

Anul acesta am terminat sezonul de iarna intr-un mod deosebit, prin locuri care deja imi sunt foarte dragi, acolo unde zapezile se mentin pentru tot timpul anului, unde frumosul te invaluie oriunde esti si unde oamenii, in marea lor majoritate, traiesc pentru ceea ce le ofera cel de deasupra lor: Muntele. Mont Blanc. Suntem la poalele muntelui pentru prima data la sfarsit de martie. Chamonix, capitala alpinismului nu este la fel de incarcat de flori precum vara si parca sunt mai putin turisti. Atmosfera este, insa, foarte placuta si linistitoare. In aparenta, pe versantii vaii Chamonix nu pare sa fie [...]
