Yak Sarai Expedition
We were cursing ourselves that why we have chosen this trek for an adventure. A horrible and terrifying trek, full of threats and challenges, death galleries, bloody streams, glaciers full of the razor-edged crevasse and each crease is ready to swallow anything which slips or falls into it and then disappears forever. One of our porters, who was struggling ahead of us with his load, suddenly slips and falls all the way down into a deep crevasse. Everybody throws his rucksack and immediately rushes to rescue him. it's a matter to save a human life. He is in a freezer and we have only a few minutes to pull him up. Thanks to timely help of nature, in hurry and worry, whatever efforts were done, were perfect according to the situation and the porter was pulled up from the crevasse. He was really scared and unable to speak. We too were frightened and the great Chhateboi glacier was smiling at us. In this memorable picture, you can see, the scary faces on Chhateboi glacier, standing from left to right, myself ie Shahid Aziz, Mr. Mustansar Hussain Tarar, late Mian Farzand Ali and others.
