Greek Mountaineers Conquer Highest Himalaya Peak

E5DC6B1E609B71D95125F5C1926D73A1Four Greek mountaineers despite the cold, heavy rain and wind managed to climb the highest peaks of the Indian Himalayas and raise  the Greek flag where no one has ever reached.

According to the newspaper Ethnos, the Greek climbers called a vertical sharp and frightening peak (Mutik Skal in the local dialect) Lost Pearl. This peak is invisible from the surrounding valleys and is at 6,243 meters. They slept under the rocks and stepped into eternal glaciers, where the snow never melts and nobody knows what is underneath.

George Voutyropoulos, Nikos Lasanas, Panos Athanasiadis and Nikos Kroupis had been organizing the journey for months and started their adventure when they managed to get 50% of the cost from the Greek Mountaineering and Climbing Federation.

The four brave mountaineers traveled to India, arrived in the Ladakh region and the remote valley of Raros, where only adventurous climbers dare.

In groups of two, mostly in pairs they conquered the peaks Katkat Kangkri (6.148m.) Lost Pearl (6.243m.) Scilma Kangkri (6.020m.) and Lama Su (5.947m.).
