Bulgarian National Everest Expedition - 1984


Everest West Ridge and Traverse: (cont.)

Thus, four Bulgarians performed the second traverse of Everest up the west ridge and down the southeast. Their route was partially new since they had climbed the west ridge proper and not the Hornbein Couloir. This traverse would have been impossible without the generous help of the Indian expedition on the normal route, which offered tents, oxygen, food and even medicine. Savov suffered frostbite and evacuated from Base Camp. Valtchev healed in the Indian camps and Base Camp and suffered no serious consequences.

In 1997 (May 20) Doychin Vasilev reached the summit (267 ascent) from the north as a member of the International Commercial Expedition led by A. de Choudens (France) with the Russians and the Kazakhs D. Grekov, K. Farafonov, S. Lavrov, D. Mouraviev, L. Savina (f), D. Sobolev.  

Story by Peter Atanasov Editor of Bulgarian mountain journal "Na Raba", Speaker of the Federation of the Bulgarian Alpine Clubs, Member of the Expedition Commission of the UIAA
