    Everest

    N. S. Thapa (1967)

    In May 1965, an expedition sponsored by the Indian Mountaineering Foundation and led by Lt. Commdr. M.S. Kohli reached the summit of Everest. This is the 35 minutes version of the 80 minutes official film, it mostly shows the climbing part and not the approximation march. There is also a 22 minutes version titled 'The challenge of Everest'. The expedition took three Paillard Bolex 16mm cameras and one lightweight magazine camera. Tripods were used only upto Base Camp. For higher camps modified ice-axes were used. Finally, all the three Paillard Bolex cameras despite anti freeze treatment were frozen. But the lightweight magazine camera, given to Captain Kohli by the Intelligence Bureau, without anti freeze treatment worked upto the summit though only for a few seconds.
