His schedule starts on Monday, June 13, leaving from Bogota to Paris, London, Islamabad and Gilgit, where he will start a trek to the base camp of the mountain.

 

Fernando wants to climb the 14 highest mountains of the world, of over eight thousand meters of altitude, located all of them in the mountain system of the Himalayas.

 

Fercho wants to send a message to Colombians with this project, to make a national effort, beyond the expected to recover the union among us.  His is a message of peace.
