"killer mountain" resue attempt

Tomaz Humar is one of Slovenia's best-known mountain climbers

Recently he attempted to climb the treacherous Nanga Parbat, located in Northern Pakistan. It is popularly referred to as the "killer mountain" since many mountaineers have died attempting to climb it.

He got stuck on the way there and was rescued in a daring attempt by the Pakistan Army pilots. Please note that flying in a chopper, in the thin air at 6000 meters, is a very difficult thing to do

Tomaz has posted pictures and videos of his resuce attempt. Do check it out, they are really amazing
