Renowned Solvenian mountain climber Tomaz Humar has had to be rescued by the Pakistani military after getting stuck on Nanga Parbat. Humar was stranded for four days with very little provisions, as he had wanted to climb light.
Stranded at 6,000m Pakistani troops were forced to attempt a rescue that has so far never been recorded at that height. Nanga Parbat is one of the highest and most dangerous peaks in the world. Humar was climbing solo on an unattempted route.
Nazir Sabir, a close friend of Humar, said before the rescue that: "The area where he is stuck is very delicate and very steep. It's probably one of the most complicated rescue operations in Himalayan history."
