Шерпи ще разчистват Еверест от телата на алпинисти

© Reuters



Екип от двайсетина шерпи възнамерява да разчисти връх Еверест от телата на алпинисти, загинали в т.нар. смъртоносна зона - опасна отсечка над Южното седло (на около 8 хил. м надморско равнище), където от 1953 г. насам над 300 души са намерили смъртта си, предава АП. Шерпите, всеки от които е изкачвал върха поне веднъж, планират да приберат телата на най-малко петима загинали, заяви лидерът на групата Намгиял. Досега подобна практика липсваше заради изключително тежките условия.


В хода на експедицията си, която трябва да започне на 1 май, шерпите смятат също така да разчистят склоновете на планината от около 3 тона боклук, оставен от стотиците алпинисти.


"Ще носим празни торби, които ще напълним с десетките празни кислородни бутилки, опаковки от храна, стари палатки и въжета, които са разхвърляни из района", посочи Намгиял. Инициативата на шерпите е част от програмата на непалското правителство да поддържа популярната туристическа дестинация чиста. Допреди 15 години Еверест буквално затъваше в купища боклук, докато властите на Непал не наложиха стриктни правила за желаещите да изкачат върха. Днес всеки от тях плаща специален депозит, който губи, ако не върне обратно цялото си алпинистко оборудване, както и отпадъците си.

    Телата на нашите Христо Проданов и Христо Христов също са там.Поради вечният студ труповете на загиналите алпинисти са замръзнали и по този начин са консервирани така,че да са разпознаваеми и да могат да се погребат.
    Инициативата за тази "оборка" не е лоша.

    Под "оборка" може би имаш предвид руската дума "уборка"?

    що за планинар/алпинист трябва да си, че да си хвърлиш боклуците в планината?

    Това е Еверест, а не Черни връх. За какво планинарство говориш? За съжаление там всеки тон багаж остава като боклук. Пътя нагоре е осеян с палатки, въжета, кислородни бутилки, битови отпадъци, тела на загинали, и.т.н., всичко остава там. Нещо като замърсяването на околоземното пространство с космически боклук.

    In 1935, twenty-one-year-old Tenzing Norgay made his first trip to
    Mount Everest. He worked as a porter for a British team of moun-
    taineers. A Sherpa born in the high altitudes of Nepal, Tenzing had
    been drawn to the mountain from the time that Westerners began visit-
    ing the area with the idea of climbing to the mountain's peak. The first
    group had come in 1920. Fifteen years later, climbers were still trying to
    figure out how to conquer the mountain.
    The farthest this expedition would go was up to the north col, an
    altitude of 22,000 feet. (A col is a flat area along a mountain's ridge
    between peaks.) And it was just below that col that the climbing party
    made a gruesome discovery. They came across a wind-shredded tent. In
    that tent was a skeleton with frozen skin stretched over the bones. It was
    sitting in an odd position, with one boot off and the laces of the remain-
    ing boot between its bony fingers.
    Mountain climbing is not for the faint of heart. The world's highest
    peaks are some of the most inhospitable places on earth. Of course,
    that hasn't stopped people from attempting to conquer mountains. In
    1786 the first climbers made it to the summit of Europe's highest moun-
    tain, Mont Blanc in France. That was quite a feat. But there's a big dif-
    ference between climbing the highest of the Alps at 15,771 feet and
    climbing Everest, the world's highest peak, at 29,035 feet—especially in
    the days before high-tech equipment. Everest is remote. The altitude
    incapacitates all but the hardiest and most experienced climbers, and
    the weather is unforgiving. Experts believe that the bodies of 120 failed
    climbers remain on the mountain today.'
    The body Tenzing and the others found in 1935 was that of Maurice
    Wilson, an Englishman who had sneaked into Tibet and tried to climb
    the mountain secretly, without the permission of the Tibetan govern-
    ment. Because he was trying to make the ascent quietly, he had hired
    only three porters to climb the mountain with him. As they approached
    the north col, those men had refused to go any farther with him. Wilson
    decided to try to make the climb on his own. That decision killed him.
    Only someone who has climbed a great mountain knows what it
    takes to make it to the top. For thirty-two years, between 1920 and 1952,
    seven major expeditions tried—and failed—to make it to the top of
    Everest. Tenzing Norgay was on six of those expeditions, as well as many
    other high mountain climbs. His fellow climbers joked that he had a
    third lung because of his ability to climb tirelessly while carrying heavy
    loads. He earned their respect, and he learned a lot. The greatest les-
    son was that no one should underestimate the difficulty of the climb.
    He had seen people do that at a great price.
    In 1953 Tenzing embarked on his seventh expedition to Everest with
    a British group led by Colonel John Hunt. By then he was respected not
    only as a porter who could carry heavy loads at high altitudes, but also
    as a mountaineer and full-fledged expedition member, an honor unusual
    for a Sherpa. The year before, he had climbed to a height of 28,250 feet
    with a Swiss team. Up to then, that was the closest any human being had
    come to the top of the mountain.
    Tenzing was also engaged to be the British group's sirdar for the
    trip, the Sherpa leader who would hire, organize, and lead the porters
    for the journey. That was no small task. To get just two people from base
    camp up to the summit, the team brought ten high-altitude climbers,
    including a New Zealander named Edmund Hillary. Altogether, the
    men would require two and a half tons of equipment and food. Those
    supplies couldn't be trucked or airlifted to the base of the mountain.
    They would have to be delivered to Kathmandu and carried on the backs
    of men and women 180 miles—up and down Himalayan ridges and
    over rivers crossed by narrow rope-and-plank bridges to the base camp.
    Tenzing would have to hire between two and three hundred people just
    to get the supplies in the vicinity of the mountain.
    Supplies that would be needed by the party above the base camp
    would have to be carried up the mountain by another forty porters,
    each a Sherpa with extensive mountain experience. The best third of
    that team would continue working higher up the mountain, carrying
    the 750 pounds of necessary equipment in 30-pound loads. Only
    Tenzing and three other porters would have the strength and skill to go
    to the high camps near the summit.
    For each level that the climbers reached, a higher degree of team-
    work was required. One set of men would exhaust themselves just to get
    equipment up the mountain for the next group. Two-man teams would
    work their way up the mountain by finding a path, cutting steps, and
    securing ropes. They would then be done, having spent themselves to
    make the next leg of the climb possible for another team. Of the team-
    work involved, Tenzing remarked, "You do not climb a mountain like
    Everest by trying to race ahead on your own, or by competing with your
    comrades. You do it slowly and carefully, by unselfish teamwork.
    Certainly I wanted to reach the top myself; it was the thing I had
    dreamed of all my life. But if the lot fell to someone else I would take it
    like a man, and not a cry-baby. For that is the mountain way."'
    The team of climbers, using the "mountain way," ultimately made it
    possible for two pairs to make an attempt at reaching the summit. The
    first pair consisted of Tom Bourdillon and Charles Evans. When they
    tried and failed, the other team got its chance. That team consisted of
    Tenzing and Edmund. Tenzing wrote of the first team:
    They were worn-out, sick with exhaustion, and, of course, terribly disap-
    pointed that they had not reached the summit themselves. But still .. .
    they did everything they could to advise and help us. And I thought,
    Yes, that is how it is on a mountain. That is how a mountain makes men
    great. For where would Hillary and I have been without the others?
    Without the climbers who had made the route and the Sherpas who
    had carried the loads? Without Bourdillon and Evans, Hunt and Da
    Namgyal, who had cleared the way ahead? Without Lowe and Gregory,
    Ang Hyima, Ang Tempra, and Penba, who were there only to help us?
    It was only because of the work and sacrifice of all of them that we were
    now to have our chance at the top.3
    They made the most of their chance. On May 29, 1953, Tenzing Norgay
    and Edmund Hillary accomplished what no other human being had
    ever done: They stood on the summit of Mount Everest, the world's
    highest peak!
