K2 2004 - 50 years later
K2 North: Italian expedition
takes part to the first Islamabad-Kashgar flight (some of the group are still
making their way to the mountain.)
The adventure of the climbers
of K2-2004 aiming to climb K2 from the North side, starts again today. The
original plan has just changed and the group is currently flying from
Islamabad to Kashgar.
That's the first time a
flight links these two towns. The K2-2004 Expedition took off on an almost
empty airplane with more than 100 pieces of luggage.
Yesterday the Team had to
stay in Islamabad due to the disorders in northern Pakistan, in Gilgit.
Chinese Authorities were forced to close the frontier with Pakistan at
Kunjerab Pass. This caused the change in the Expedition schedule.
