Yeah brother,

 

That 2 weeks.... That 2 Japanese died after reaching EBC in their sleep....

 

A Nepalese guide died from rock fall at chola pass

 

A Malaysian, 49yrs died 3 days before EBC...a friend of my friends...in different team

 

Many with AMS and other sickness....

 

EBC is no easy meat for some...

 

And yes, quite a few had to helicopter down...as oxygen level in blood is less than 50 %...down fast

Or die...that is what my fiends had to pay for....fell from horse twice...USD600 for oxygen given at Periche.

I think it was USD400 for the horse and whatever for Porter to carry the other down to Periche in Basket. 

 

Can write a book lah....

Hi Joseph,

 

Oh man...choppered down? that's hefty price to pay, man... No wonder I heard many chopper flew in and out that whole week...

 

Yep, that's what occured in my mind when I had difficulty to breath, I know that's normal at that altitude and it's not even considered AMS yet ;)), and I decided to abandon it as I saw quite a few people being carried down by horse and porter, so I don't want to end up the same....

 

I saw 2 japanese died as well...so it make me more determine to stop trying...

maybe I'll do it again next time...

 

BTW, congrats on ur achievement, you're da man!

Keep in touch!

Hi Radzi,

 

I heard about your AMS. My 2 friends in KC leong group also got AMS...more severe...had to helicopter down

To Katmandu...RM 11,000 each...

 

One never know hwy it happen...just have to be more fit, alert and trek slowly...that helps....

 

You are young...still can try again...I am 57 yrs this weekend...so I am lucky to make it..cheers

Hi Joseph,

 

Well, my original plan is to go to EBC, but I got the AMS attack, so I cancel my plan, just don't wanna take risk... :)

 

Yep, EBC will always be there, so hope I can make it next time....

 

Take care, sir..
