Polish mountaineers fall ill on way to Himalayan peak

Press Trust of India  |  Uttarkashi 

Two members of a Polish mountaineering team fell ill while trying to climb the Himalayan peak of Shivlinga, prompting the administration to press SDRF personnel, NIM experts and a chopper into operation to rescue them.

Two Polish nationals who were part of a five-member team of mountaineers from that country fell ill on way to Shivlinga peak located at a height of 6,543 metres above Gomukh a couple of days back, Uttarkashi SP Dadanpal said.



A rescue operation was launched by SDRF personnel and experts from Nehru Institute of Mountaineering on board a chopper yesterday after other members of the group returned to their base camp at Tapovan and informed authorities about it, he said.

However, the ailing Polish mountaineers have not been rescued so far, he said.

The helicopter has landed at Tapovan from where the SDRF personnel and NIM experts have to trek to the peak to bring back the ailing mountaineers, he said.

The Polish mountaineering team had begun the expedition on September 22.
