PAKISTAN ARMY Heroically Rescues Ailing Polish Climber From World’s Second Highest Peak K2:
PAKISTAN ARMY has heroically rescued and airlifted Polish climber from the Base Camp of K2, World’s Highest Peak, to Skardu after his physical condition deteriorated due to a disease.
Polish mountaineer Waldemar Kowalewski journey to conquer World’s Second Highest Peak,K-2, was cut short after he complained about a disease called hernia that developed during loading carrying en route to the K2 base camp. He joined the expedition as a part of the biggest international SST K2 winter expedition.
A PAKISTAN ARMY Aviation Helicopter evacuated the ailing Polish Mountaineer from the World’s Second Highest Peak, K2, to Skardu, where he is currently being treated for Hernia.
It is important to mention that this is the second consecutive time that Polish mountaineer Waldemar Kowalewski has attempted to conquer K2 in winter. However, both of his expeditions have ended abruptly due to injuries.
Back in winter 2018-19, he was hit by the avalanche on his way to the Base Camp.
PAKISTAN’s fifth Province or Northern Areas is considered as an ideal destination for all the adventure seeking tourists to reach the country to conquer its high-altitude peaks.
PAKISTAN’s Fifth province, Gilgit-Baltistan, is considered as the Mountaineer’s Paradise, as it hosts five of World’s 8,000 meter peaks, including the K2.
It is pertinent to mention that PAKISTAN ARMY has rescued two foreign mountaineers from the Eastern Karakoram Mountain range in the Himalayas back in February 2020.
“PAKISTAN ARMY Aviation pilots rescued two foreign mountain climbers, Mr. Donald Allen Bowie (USA) and Ms. Lotta Henriikka Nakyva (Finland) from Broad Peak, Baltoro Glacier … part of an International Winter Expedition attempting to summit Broad Peak but stranded en route due to sickness,”, DGISPR said.
Subsequently, PAKISTAN ARMY successfully rescued two British Mountaineers trapped near the Koyo Zom Peak in the Chitral district in 2018 and French Mountaineer Elisabeth Revol was rescued from the Peak of Nanga Parbat after getting trapped back in 2018.
