SKARDU, Jan 01 (APP):A 13-member adventurous team of Poland arrived
here on Monday to scale the world’s second highest mountain of K2 during the
harsh cold weather.
The team that has already scaled three difficult peaks
including Nanga Parbat and Gasha Broom and another 8000 feet high mountain has
embarked upon the journey towards K2 to scale its peak during the most challenging
conditions.
Before the journey towards K2, leader of the team Krzystof
Wielieki told media that he has already made adventures at different mountains
of Baltistan and now wanted to scale K2 during the snowy season to realize his
dream.
He said in 2003 he tried to scale K2 during winter season
but the extremely harsh weather forced him to abandon his mission adding this
time he came with high moral and the team has made extraordinary preparations
for this task.
He said he and his team was feeling immense pleasure to come
to Pakistan as people here were very hospitable and cooperative and have great
love for climbers.
He showed his resolve that in future too he and his team
will visit Pakistan to scale these beautiful mountains.
