Since 2004, Bili Bierling, born in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, has been working together with the legendary Elizabeth Hawley – Himalaya’s mountaineering chronicler. During her career, Elizabeth Hawley has interviewed the most distinguished mountaineers, anyone from Edmund Hilary to Heinrich Herrer, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Reinhold Messner. And of course, Billi Bierling has been following the change in the world’s highest mountaineering during her 13-year work for the Himalayan Database. Unlike Mrs. Hawley, Billi has been mountaineering on her own and has reached five out of 14 of the highest peaks in the world. She has experienced the powerful mountains on her own skin not only on the paper.
ALL details about Billi’s presentation: The Himalayan database – Elisabeth Howley, the Everest and the evolution of the commercial mountaineering
In a 60-minute presentation, Billi Bierling will share her experience of the fascinating world of the Himalayan mountains and will offer the listeners a sneak behind the curtains of Miss Hawley’s work, her own role and the commercialization of the Himalayas.
