Affected by the super cyclonic storm "Fehling " periphery diffusion cloud system from Bay of Bengal , a very strong snow and train storm took place on the 13th in southwestern Tibet, Shigatse. This morning, the Tibet Autonomous Region Meteorological Bureau released heavy snowfall orange warning signal.

   

Shigatse government said to China News agency that large-scale snowfall occurred around Tingri County and Everest Base Camp, depth is about 70-80 cm, 86 tourists stranded including 13 foreign tourists. Upon the message, Shigatse Prefectural Administrative Office immediately launched the emergency plan for the rescue.

According to Tingri County Deputy Magistrate's introduction, the continuous snowfall caused deep snow near Everest Base Camp, people have to be transferred to Tashi village where the snow is smaller; since the snow has not stopped yet, the rescue work comes with certain difficulties. Meanwhile, Tingri County dispatched dozens of rescue workers and several loaders, local border armies also help clearing snow, trying to rescue and evacuate everybody as soon as possible.

   

We are taking action to rescue the tourists and transfer them to safe place, though under such bad weather. Some officers are sent to the tourists to pacify and comfort them. No casualty report so far.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Gene Raymond Kinne,

Greetings from Nancy Chung at BTT. For the 7 Days Lhasa to Kathmandu Tour via Everest Base Camp, there will not be much walking daily as you will be driven to each place and dropped off there. And please no worry about your age, ha-ha… we had clients who were 83 years old taking this tour before without problem, and I think you will be ok too. best regards to you.

There will be 3days for trekking around Kailash included, so you will have enough trekking if you will take this tour. I will send you more details by email. Best wishes to you.
