A reliable source from Skardu told Pamir Times that the team had gone to scale the peak a week ago. Among the team members was Zuzana, passport No.39835813, who has been missing since  then. Search and rescue efforts have apparently failed due to inclement weather conditions.

It is pertinent to note that Muhammad Baqir, a local climber who was part of the same mission had died  two days back, due to bad health.

  1. Ms. Zuzana Hofmnova was missing after descending from summit of Broad Peak, She became the first Czech lady to summit Broad Peak. Her body is not yet found, as the season is closing it seem hard to found her body. Earlier a high porters from Sadpara village also got missing between BC to ABC, he fear to be drown. His body also not found.

  2. Do you know any details about them? Was it because of bad weather or because of an avalanche? What about the rest of the expedition? Do they remember until when Mrs. Hofmannová was joining them?
