Great news, Baljeet Kaur, a renowned Indian alpinist was rescued in Nepal. A day after going missing near Camp IV of Mt. Annapurna while descending from the summit point, notable Indian climber Baljeet Kaur, 27, was discovered alive, according to an official of the expedition’s organizer.
The Chairman of Pioneer Adventure, Pasang Sherpa, was reported by the Himalayan Times newspaper as claiming that Ms. Kaur was found by an aerial search party above Camp IV after she reached the world’s 10th-highest peak on April 17 without the use of supplementary oxygen.
“We are preparing to conduct a long-line rescue to airlift her from above the high camp,” he said.
The aircraft search crew has reportedly observed Ms. Kaur descending alone into Camp IV.
According to the report, the top Indian female climber, who was abandoned below the summit point, was out of radio communication until this morning.
On Tuesday morning, an aerial search expedition wasn’t launched until she was able to make a radio transmission requesting “immediate help.”
Her GPS position showed an altitude of 7,375m (24,193ft), according to Mr. Sherpa. On Monday at about 5:15 p.m., she and two Sherpa guides scaled Mount Annapurna. To find her, at least three helicopters were dispatched.
Ms. Kaur, a climber from Himachal Pradesh, conquered Mount Lhotse in May of last year, making history as the first Indian to summit four peaks above 8,000 meters in a single climbing season.
Anurag Malu, a native of Kishangarh in the state of Rajasthan, vanished on Monday as he descended from Camp III of Mount Annapurna.
Malu was later discovered to have perished after plunging 6,000 meters down a crevasse on Monday while leaving Camp IV, according to The Himalayan Times newspaper.
Noel Hanna, the first Irishman to summit K2 during the winter, passed away Friday night at Camp IV, according to Mingma Sherpa,
- chairman of Seven Summit Treks. The organizers indicated that efforts are being made to return their remains to the base camp.
At 8,091 meters above sea level, Annapurna is the tenth-highest peak in the world. It is widely renowned for the challenge and risk involved in ascending it.
Rescue of Arjun Vajpai
According to representatives from the expedition’s organizers, Arjun Vajpayee and others were rescued from Mt. Annapurna in Nepal on Tuesday.
Arjun Vajpai climbed Mount Everest in 2010 at the age of 16 years, 11 months, and 18 days, making him the youngest Indian to do so. A year later, he ascended the summits of Mt. Manaslu and Lhotse, making history as the youngest person to do so. He now holds the record for being the youngest mountaineer to reach the top of six of the world’s fourteen tallest peaks. Anurag Malu, a native of Kishangarh in the state of Rajasthan, vanished on Monday as he descended from Camp III of Mount Annapurna.
