Vishnugarh Darh Expedition

Aiming for unclimbed peaks up to 6000m around the Panpatia Glacier in Garhwal, they approached via Josimath and a two day walk in. A Base Camp was established at 3815m, and an ABC at 4199m for acclimatisation. Soon after this camp was set up Raja started to experience breathing problems. Jensen continued reconnaissance alone up to 4765m, but as Raja’s condition did not improve they decided to terminate the expedition and get medical care for him. The problem turned out to be a lung infection related to a condition during a previous expedition when he had a tapeworm in his lung.
