  Mt. Everest 2005: The report from the heart the avalanche from the Iran expedition


Update: The First World Muslim Women From I. R. Iran Everest Expedition 2005

It was 5:20 Am4 May 2005.

We the Iranian expedition to Everest were in our tents in camp1. We heard sound 06 avalanche from east side.

We opened the tent to see that what happened but a great deal of snow came into our tent. It was a huge avalanche from west side of Everest shoulder. After a few seconds the wind stopped and we knew that other tents in C1 were in risk because our camp was the last and far from avalanche center.

One of our members, Azim ghaychisaz went toward C1 quickly and he saw that all tents in C1 are destroyed.

He returned to Iranian camp and asked us to help. He and Jalal Cheshmehghasabani, Dr. Mahmoud Goodarzi went quickly to help them. The nearest camp belonged to Summit Climb group. There were two men one Sherpa and one member injured. Their tents were destroyed completely and they were out of their tents. We found a tent that was usable and made it for two injured men, and carried them in to tent.

Dr. Goudarzi visited them. They did not have life threatening problems. We contacted to Base camp and asked from our leader to going to summit climb camp and inform them for helping their members. Our leader sent message to that camp and inform them. And our group left toward C2 with thanks from God for our health. We are in base camp now and waiting for good weather to climb.
