Detailed Product Description
Prague, 1968. 1st German edition. 192 pp, b/w and color photos, foldout color map. In German. Pictorial linen hardcover with dust jacket. Near Fine.

Translated from the Czech by Erich Mach. Rare travel and experience report by Vilm Heckel and A. Cernik in 1968. 

Wikipedia: Vilm Heckel (21 May 1918 in Plzeň 31 May 1970 in Huascarn) was a Czech photographer. He devoted himself mainly to landscape photography, with special focus on the photography of mountains. In 1970, he died at Huascarn, Peru. Vilm Heckel was one of the founders of the genre of industrial and promotional photography in Czechoslovakia. 

In 1970, a group of mountain climbers together with Heckel planned to visit Alaska. Their intention was thwarted by the Czechoslovak communist regime. Following the suppression of the Prague Spring in 1968, it was almost impossible to travel to Western countries.[2] The group changed their plan and decided to climb the peaks in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca. Heckel and several of his colleagues planned to leave the expedition and focus more on studying and documenting of Peruvian culture. However, after the death of one of the leaders of the expedition, climber Ivan Bortel, they were forced to stay in the camp with the rest of the expedition. On 1 June 1970, Heckel and his colleagues intended to separate from the rest of the group. Coincidentally, the avalanche caused by Great Peruvian earthquake buried their camp under Huascarn on 31 May 1970, the day before their departure. All of the members of the expedition died.
