Streik der Sherpas

So sieht es am Mount Everest aus, wenn die Bergsteiger ausbleiben

Seit im April bei einem Lawinenunglück 16 Sherpas ums Leben kamen, streiken die meisten der nepalesischen Bergführer, ohne die eine Ersteigung des Everest kaum möglich ist. Der Bergsteig-Tourismus ist in der Folge praktisch zum Erliegen gekommen. Was das für die Region bedeutet, hat Reuters-Fotograf Fotograf Navesh Chitrakar versucht in Bildern festzuhalten.

Mount Ama Dablam, which stands approximately 6800 meters above sea level, is seen behind Khumjung Village in Solukhumbu District April 30, 2014. More than 4,000 climbers have reached the summit of Everest, the world's highest peak, since it was first scaled by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. In April, an avalanche killed 16 Nepali Sherpa guides who were fixing ropes and ferrying supplies for their foreign clients to climb the 8,850-metre (29,035-foot) peak. The accident - the deadliest in the history of Mount Everest - triggered a dispute between sherpa guides who wanted a climbing ban in honour of their colleagues and the Nepali government that refused to close the mountain. The sherpas staged a boycott, forcing hundreds of foreign climbers to call off their bids to climb Everest.  Picture taken April 30, 2014.

Miiinchia II, auf diesen coolen Shit sind wir in den 90ern geflogen

Weil unsere Story «Miiinchia, das ist ja voll 90er - vor 20 Jahren waren diese Dialoge der absolute Burner» abging wie Schmidts Katze, machen wir es wie Hollywood: Wir schieben ein halbgares Sequel nach. Viel Spass trotzdem.
