When celebrating the International Mountaineer Day
Great heights have long attracted people. Once two conquerors of the peaks - Pakkar and Balma - climbed Mount Mont Blanc. It happened on August 8, 1786. "The Mountaineer's Day" - so later will be called this day, and will celebrate it annually throughout the world.
Already 5 thousand. years ago, daredevils conquered the peaks - this is evidenced by the finds found high in the mountains and the remains of people. In those days, according to scientists, they were looking for food. Now, the conquerors of the peaks want to test themselves, some consider mountaineering a sport.
The climber's day appeared in the calendar more than 200years ago, but people began to "master" the heights much earlier. Mont Blanc tried to conquer several times. In 1741, Pocock and Wyndham from England opened the Chamonix Valley, with which all further hikes started. Many years to reach the highest point Mont Blanc failed: the expedition ended tragically.
And in 1786 Pakkar together with the conductorBalma conquered the mountain and hoisted a red flag, which fixed telescopes in Chamonix. Now August 8 is not just an ordinary day, but a Mountaineer Day. This is due to the fact that the climb to Mont Blanc was the starting point for the era of mountaineering.
The holiday spread throughout the world and became international. Every mountaineer, regardless of place of residence and citizenship, considers August 8 as his day.
