Mount Everest 1996 - Traum und Wirklichkeit

The first Saxon Mount Everest Expedition attempted to climb the mountain in 1996. Without additional oxygen, high porters, or even a kitchen team, the Saxons climbed from the north side in Tibet up to 8,500 meters. They had to turn back only 350 meters below the summit. The team had to give up the summit to take part in the rescue of a Japanese climber. It was 1996, the year of the great Everest catastrophe, in which many climbers from various expeditions on the mountain died. The 14 members from Saxony were awarded the 'Fair Play Prize' by the city of Dresden for their expedition and their help on the mountain.
