20th May 2004 | Summiters are back

Posted on May 20, 2004


Listening to Mukesh Hits Rest day. Brushed my teeth after these days spent on top. Chief cook brought Rakesh’s walkman – listened to old Mukesh’s songs. Read Taj. Cdr Dam started from 8300m. It seems Ang Tashi is the one who is not well- – has been given a Dexa injection.

Weather has been bad, snowfall in ABC. Kankan Sir also moved down from Camp 2 with Tenzing Sherpa.Joseba ( Basque, Spain) dropped by to tell us that Kankan Sir would be coming in a few minutes. He reached before lunch – in the full attire that he had worn to the summit including the crampons. Oxygen bottles were changed for Cdr Dam and And Tashi.

Cdr Dam and his Sherpas arrived by 2115 hrs. Bhanoo took a short interview on handycam. Ang Tashi was scared after seeing the dead bodies on the summit.

Some Tibetan prayers were read out for him.
