Sad Ending to Mt. Everest Peace Expedition

Mt. Everest Expedition for Global Peace and Friendship Struck Down at Base Camp

The Daily Prism is pleased to hear from the mountaineer, Phurba Thile Sherpa today.  Unfortunately, the news of his peace expedition up Mt. Everest is tragic.  We had assumed that his team made it to Camp 1 prior to the April 25 earthquake-fueled avalanches on Mt. Everest.  But it appears from his post that his team were at Base Camp when the avalanche struck.

I am back in Kathmandu safely from Everest Base Camp. I am well and physical fit. We lost 5 members of our Expedition team and several injured. 4 of them are severely injured. We are taking care of injured people in hospital.

I am very sorry for late update. I couldn't update my status because I lost all  my equipments, laptop, camera, phone and everything was lost. I was on the way to Kathmandu and communication was very hard. I was busy for managing transportation to injured people. We lost all our equipments and everything on the avalanche. The cost of all the lost equipments is not yet calculated.
