Scheduled on the December 2013, the peak of Mt. Giluwe will be landmarked with an inscription that has never been before. Many locals and tourists have climb the mountain but it was never been landmarked as other peaks around the world. This year, it will be landmarked by local PNGans and 2 travellers coming all the way from Romania.
The 2 people are Alexandra Marcu and Dan Marcu. Alexandra have just launched a book in Europe and due to the launch of the book they were contacted by Nikkon, the Photo Company, and they are going to give Alexandra a state-of -the-art camera. She will be taking this camera to PNG, took shots and promote the photos they will be taking in Papua New Guinea the world over. This is great. Alexandra takes photographic courses provided by Nikkon Company. They will also make an official presentation of photos taken in PNG to Nikkon. Photos about Mount Giluwe, the jungle, the village, the wildlife, the traditions and so forth. It will be a Papua New Guinean-Romanian collaboration.
The Romanians are taking off from Port Moresby on November 30th at 07:45 and land in M Hagen 09:15 on the same day (depending on flight schedules).
There are just 2 girls in the world that try to climb this 7 Volcanoes Circuit. The Russian Olga Rumyantseva who is 34 and the Romanian Alexandra Marcu who is 16.
If this European girl of 16 years old, manages to climb Giluwe, it will be an hit for Mt. Giluwe as a tourism destination. Alexandra climbed Mont Blanc at 12 years old and Kilimanjaro at 13 and her records are very well known. She is a name in the world of the climbers, trekkers and travellers the world over.
