Killings on Cho Oyo

Postby Yog » Tue Oct 24, 2006 12:03 pm

This isn't exactly a "Mountaineering Tale", but a true event that happened earlier this month. It is about Tibetan citizens and refugees trying to make a pilgramage from Chinese occupied Tibet to Nepal to see the Dali Lama and their unfortunate demise at the hands of the bloodthirsty occupiers. Enough of my commentary, just read this. This is a link from the climbers' perspective:
This is a link about chinese diplomats trying to gag the western climbing teams/expeditions to prevent the release of the story, as well as links to some video by the Romanian team
. . .Now, after the hours of torment . . . I have nothing more to do than breathe . . .I am nothing more than a single, narrow, gasping lung, floating over the mists and the summits.
