Climbers from Almaty remained under a snow block at the peak of Victory in Kyrgyzstan

This was reported by MIA Kazinform.

Climbers remained at an altitude of 6600 meters without the ability to go down and contact anyone. Rescuers from the Ministry of Emergencies of Kyrgyzstan flew around the approximate site in a MI-8 helicopter. However, searches were stopped due to weather conditions.

It is also reported that helicopters do not withstand high altitude overloads and cannot reach this level.

A rescue helicopter was sent from the Khan Tengri mountain to the search site with a mountain search and rescue group on foot. It will reach the maximum possible point, from there the search group and volunteers will leave.
