What's up guys this is Mashal Khan Balti And you are watching my Youtube Chanel Mashal Khan Balti Today I am going to tell you A very sad and hurtful incident I know you people might know of it by now of Sajid Ali Sadpara, Ali Sadpara, Juan Pablo and John Snorri's Story and incident of the expedition Now I know this expedition was very exciting for us But why was it exciting? Because two Pakistani mountaineers were included in this Who were going to set a record for Pakistan Now I know the K2 summit was conquered before the Nepalese Although we are happy for the people of Nepal But we were more happy for this expedition because it involved Pakistani mountaineers Via International News and Social Media you guys might know by now That we have no idea about their location right now Ali Sadpara's son Sajid Sadpara is on the BC and now Skardu And the Skardu administration even took his interview First I will show you the interview and then we will talk further This year we were in the K2 Winter Expedition 2021 And we departed for the BC from Skardu on 5th December 2020 And we reached K2 basecamp on 10-12th December 2020 We were two Pakistanis (My father and me) Ali Sadpara and Me, who were on the expedition this year Unfortunately we were going for it, it was our second attempt We started the summit on 5th February 2021 around 12am We four were at the Bottleneck The Sherpas were coming down from the summit I had an oxi bottle but when I reached the elevation of 8200 I realised that the level of the oxygen in the cylinder was low which was affecting my health And I had a mental breakdown Thus my father told me To use an oxygen cylinder I was saving for a member But when I was trying to fit the mask regulator to that O2 Cylinder That it started leaking Thus I descended down the mountain My mental health was so deteriorated But I remember seeing them for the last time ascending via the bottleneck I came down from the bottleneck around 12-1am I reached camp 3 around 5 in the evening! Then after reaching the camp 3 I contacted the team And told them that my father and others left for the summit And they (John Snorri) had no walky talkies with them Thus we couldn't contact them Later on (sigh) In the evening I told the team that my father will return after conquering the mountain And then I will bring them hot water And I kept the tent light on the entire night as a signal I was up the entire night and contacted thea team in the morning That they aren't here yet The team leader at the basecamp warned me not to ascend due to bad weather And you are tired so it's better that you come down And they will start the rescue mission from here Unfortunately they didn't reach the other day and there was no contact of them I think they went to the summit and while descending It was windy which might have caused the trouble Pakistan Army, ISPR and Civil Aviation The local and national government of Pakistan I am very thankful of their support And for their air assistance since these two days And they flew around 7-8k meters And the climber's community, especially from Iceland And the family of John Snorri and Juan Pablo Who also supported the search operation at every step I am also thankful to the entire nation for their prayers and support (Indistinct Chatter) If the operation is continued to find the body then I am ok with it But I dont think they have a chance of survival because of the harsh weather and number of days in the wilderness So you guys saw the interview of Sajid Ali Sadpara You can see he is very distressed It;s obvious because his father is there in the wilderness It would have been painful for any son to leave his father like this And like you heard his interview, being a traveller myself, it's a big shock for the travel and tourism industry Because if this summit* would have been successful Although I still pray for it to be a successful summit But if this summit turns out to be a success Then it will be a big news for our tourism industry Now I will analyse the interview And I will tell you what might've had happen to them So let's start Before discussing, I want to tell you about an incident You must have heard about the Dyatlov Pass Incident It's very common in the travel industry If you haven't heard about it I can summarise it for you The Dyatlov Pass was a pass located in the Ural mountains of Russia An expedition team went there in 1959 The Dyatlov Pass was very famous Trekkers and Mountaineers from around the world wanted to conquer the pass A pass is also called La in Balti/Tibetan Like Ghondoghorolla and Burge La La is actually a mountain pass So a group of mountaineers went to that pass in 1959 A man in the team, returned from the expedition because he fell sick enroute So he returned before the trek And the rest of them continued the journey Enroute, at a mountain edge, they camped A forest was beneath the edge So they decided to camp there Because the forest was just around the corner if they needed woods They decided to camp there for a day Thus they put a few camps there So the next day when the friend who returned tried contacted them There was no sign of them
