After completing her second eight-thousander, Manaslu, last September, Estefania Troguet is now back home in Andorra, in Spain.
Ferrino, a company specialized in outdoor products, has decided to support her in this important adventure, providing all the necessary equipment to achieve her goal: reaching the Manaslu summit in the best conditions.
Despite reaching the summit of Manaslu, that with its 8.163 meters of altitude it represents the eight highest mountain in the world, Estefania still wants to dream. She explains she had some difficult moments in Nepal, but also that she always had very clear her goal in her mind and that after all the training she knew that she would have fought for reaching the summit.
Her next challenge? Reaching the fourteen 8.000 in the world, without artificial oxygen. In this last experience, Stefi says she felt very well physically, something which gave her motivation to go on with the training and to give it all.
Her first challenge was Nanga Parbat, a totally different experience compared to Manaslu “in Pakistan I found only 4 or 5 teams while in Nepal the base camp it was like a city”, says the young girl from Andorra. And she adds that this new adventure helped her to “open her eyes and being more aware about the world we live in. It has been a very different way to live this sport and the mountain, since there were almost 800 people who tried to reach the summit with the oxygen”.
We must consider that the Manaslu is one of the most frequented places by mountaineers who want to prepare the climbing to the Everest, since the condition are very similar. She could see with her eyes those famous pictures of people waiting in queue for reaching the different base camps.
Estefania Troguet in her last press conference wanted to talk about all the hard moments she had. Despite some negative experiences, the mountaineer was very satisfied for completing her second seasonal purpose, bringing back home another new important experience on the peaks of Himalaya.
After these summits, Stefi will move on with new challenges next year, from May to June of 2020 always wearing her red lipstick, became by then her hallmark. “My lipstick it’s here to express my being a woman, even on the top of an 8.000. Until the early ‘800 it wasn’t possible for women climb mountains and those ones who did it they were going against the rules. They had to fight so much to establish themselves. I’m very happy now, because you can find girls in mountains everywhere and I find it very important: I’m proud to be one of them”.
