A day in pictures


Today, around 06.00 hours local time, alpinist Atanas Skatov climbed for the second time on Mount Everest from the southern edge. His first climbing was on May 24, 2014, reaching the peak from the Northern side of the Himalayas (Tibet). No Bulgarian has climbed the peak since then. Skatov reached this success only 6 days after climbing the Lhotse Peak and without returning the base camp in-between.  Photo: BGNES
