The first Slovakian mountaineers reached Himalayan mountain Tilicho Peak (7134 m) on Saturday. But one of the three members of the succesful summit team died on the way down.
The leader of the Slovak expedition Marian Sajnoha reported about the incident by phone yesterday. The victim, Ivan Prokop (41) from Pezinok, Slovakia, unfortunately fell down about 300 metres under the summit. He flew 400 metres and droped to a glacier gap.
