Participants of the expedition to K2, also known as Chogori are having a “100-percent rest” in the base camp, Maksut Zhumayev told Tengrinews.kz.

Thanks to the warm weather the alpinists could swim in the river and then lie on the sunny bank. Later they had a picnic on the green grass. “We are baking potatoes in the campfire coals. The sky is grey, but when we went to bed yesterday and opened the tops of our tents we could see the Milky Way and the falling stars. Stars look larger here in the mountains and there are a lot of them,” Zhumayev said.

The international expedition to K2 includes Maksut Zhumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov from Kazakhstan, Gerlinda Kaltenbrunner from Austria, Ralf Dujmovits from Germany, Darek Zaluski from Poland and Tommy Heinrich from Argentina.

Chogori is located in the Karakorum mountain system in Kashmir province at the territory of Pakistan. Its height is 8,611 meters.
