Everest North Side Expedition
Chinese SOHU Expedition


Dispatches 5/8/2003: Please marry me! Everest as my love proof

Can you imagine the place where the most romantic marriage proposal is underway? The Everest will be surely listed on the item. Yesterday, by speaking out the word "marry me", Big Xiong deeply moved his girl friend Yu Zhang who had made a long trek and got to the base camp to cheer his boy friend climbing the Zhangzi Apices.

They had been in love for many years. On May 2, Yu Zhang struggled to the 5100m base-camp getting over a bad lot of trouble. When Big Xiong came back to the camp at 5:00 p.m. yesterday, he found his girl friend just waiting for him there. To everyone's surprise, he walked out of the camp immediately, found some elders in the team and asked them to come with him. At the moment no one knew what would happen. They just saw Big Xiong walked towards Yu Zhang who was sitting on the spring bed, kneeled down, and said, "Everest as my love proof, please marry me!"

Color graphics had been taken by the color-display Report Group of China SOHU at the attitude of 6666 meters. Report group: at 12:10 today, Yongfeng Wang (captain of the team) and Chaoyang Zhang (vice-captain) began their mountain-climbing tour. They reached the altitude of 6666m at 13:44, and took some color pictures that had been sent back. For the moment they had started to get back and they were supposed to return to the Base Camp tonight. Because of the heavy wind up the mountain, they held together hand in hand to conquer the big trouble. (Mu Zhao) The moment witnessed by history: a wonderful wedding in the Base Camp Reported by China SOHU color-display group: Today at 3:00 p.m., a special wedding was going on in the Everest Base Camp. The famous mountaineer Liangpu Yu presided over the wedding ceremony as the presider and chief witness of the espousal. Yongfeng Wang, Chaoyang Zhang, and Zhixin Li (vice-president of the mountaineering association) all fervidly congratulated on their marriage in succession.

SOHU color-display report group: the team won't change the plan of struggling for the zenith Message from the Everest Base Camp by the SOHU report group: the rhythm of mountain climbing had been disturbed by the continued heavy wind. At 13:00 on May 6, the magnates of the team- Yongfeng Wang (captain), Liangpu Yu (deputy commander in chief), and Nima Ciren gathered in urgency to talk over the measure they should take in the near future. And they were most likely to agree that they stick to the original climbing plan. According to the original plan, the week duration of climbing the zenith is from May 11 to 18. On May 11, all the members of Group A and Group B will set out from the Base Camp and arrive at the march-camp on May 12. After one day's break on May 13, Group A should step on the north col first on May 14 and get to the 7790m-camp on May 15. On May 16 the members of Group A should walk into the 8300m-on rush camp before the final zenith climbing on May 17. While the action of Group B will be postponed one day compared to that of Group B. (Mu Zhao)

Gale attacked the base camp again, and the staff rebuilt their homestead together. SOHU color-display report group: gale attacked the Everest base camp again last night, and many tents were destroyed in a moment. The members of SOHU mountaineering team and the report group tried their best to save the materials left and rebuilt their homestead together on the Everest base camp. They fought with the trouble bravely together till 13:00 today, and all the destroyed tents were put up again. The spirit of all the fighters in the base camp is in a good state now, and they have got ready to encounter another harder battle. (Haimin Yu)
