  Broad Peak 2007: Serbia - Pakistan joint Broad Peak expedition 2007


After 4 days snow fall is stopped. Temperature is growing up and we hope proceed to the peak very soon.

Luckily, new dynamo is here, batteries are charging and we will be ready to connect to Internet.  

18. 06.2007. - BC

Still three days BC was chained with snow. We are practicing on ice-vertical around. Some people from Serbia were in K2-Camp first time in history – we were there. It was cloudy unfortunately and we could not seen K2 peak.

All of us are well, but we still have problems with dynamo. 

15. 06. 2007. – BC (5000 m)

We were installed first 200 m ropes, two tents and some of equipment yesterday.

There are 25 expeditions which were preparing for upsurge. It is nearly rumple-crumple J here.

All of us are well viewing snow fall.

Dynamo doesn’t work and we will be in problems with batteries if some doesn’t change soon.  Best regards.

Earlier: 08.06.2007. KUBURCE  3930 meters: After six hours of marching we arrived in Kuburze. Here is beautifull. Pedja, Rash and Dren can see Paiu, Tringo Tower and Cathedral Gope first time. All peaks as a needle, locally with ice, all over 5 or 6 thousand   meters.

All climbers are well. One of carriers was ill unfortunately and we have to return him. His pack have to allocate to the others. Tomorrow we will go on to Urdukus.

Earlier: Paiu is opposite Baltoro glacier. All members of expedition are OK.

With us are 120 carriers now. Lesser carriers than last year mean shorter stay in mountain. Something of equipment and food will be sneak afterwards.

It is not pause in the afternoon because we are going in short acclimatization tour at peaks in neighborhood.

Best regards to all.Milivoj Erdeljan, leader of expedition 

05.06.2005. – YOLA 3100 meters:  

Fortunately, today we had dry weather alter the rainy night. Light tracking from Ascole (3000 m) to the point where we are now, beautiful valley Biaho Lungme where almost 200 carriers around us are. We are surrounded with peaks sharp as needle, calling us to them. After short break we have to go to the acclimation.

In the meantime we spend tree days in Scardu occupied with examining the equipment, which had stayed last year in barrels and we fortunately find it in excellent shape.

The flight from Islamabad to Scardu, above the Karakorum Mountain, took 40 minutes, but it was shaky as in the down-town bus. Nanga Parbat was under and million of peaks high around 7000m. We checked also medical and emergency equipment, medical oxygen with masks and connection with helicopter base and dispensary.

This year we will climb the mountain pick without additional oxygen, but in Base camp (BC) we must have oxygen flaks, just in case.

We check our communication lines with Serbia using satellite phone. All is working fine, for now! Most important - all of us without stomach problems! We are healthy. These new fellows are tiptop, real men for right thing.

In Ascole we spend a whole day in packing equipment for the carriers, up to 22 kg each. There are a lot of things to carry!

Ascole it is a village like the one from ancient history, not paying attention on anybody else, includes these tourists, adventurers and us, mountaineers. They don’t want to change. These people have they own life and their rhythm. And they are satisfied.

Tomorrow we are going to next camp – Paiu, at nearness of Baltro glacier and so on for next seven day until we reach BC.

Pedja is getting along with us, Vojvodinians. He would be great “Lala” one day (Lala means tulip; it is nick for all of people from Vojvodina). Regards. 

PS. We were proud to accept offer Mountaineering Union of Pakistan.

This year is 50th jubilee of first summit Broad Peak and two mountaineers from Pakistan (Hasan and Sadik Satpar) join to our expedition, to climb the peak with us.

Because of that our expedition now is called “Serbia-Pakistan joint Broad Peak expedition 2007” officially.

So, now are with us two, as all seams, great mountaineers and there presence will be very useful to us in everyday communication with our additional staff and carriers.  

Earlier: 03.06.2007.We arrived in Scardu. Yesterday we checked all of equipment, today we are measuring it and packing it in barrels for carriers. Tomorrow we will terminate all of preparations and day after tomorrow we will start to Ascole. Best regards to all.

Update:

31.05.2007. Islamabad
We assembled missing baggage.
All administrative pursuits are accomplished (Ministry, Military, Mountaineering commitee).
Food was bought, gear too. We packed all and transport it to Scardu with cargo.
Tomorrow we will fly to Scardu. Civilization goodbye!
All of us are well
