Asia, India, Himalayas

The Himalayas arc becoming more popular. We read of at least four expeditions now under way for climbing there next summer. Herr Paul Bauer, who led the Bavarian party of 1929, will again lead the same group, with the exception of Dr. Ernst Beigel, in another attempt on Kangchenjunga. Mr. F. S. Smythe, one of the members of the Dyhrenfurth Expedition, is leading two fellow aviators in an attempt upon Kamet, 25,400 ft. Dr. Wilhelm Welzenbach is organizing a party for an attempt upon Nanga Par- bat, being financed by the D. u. Oe. A. V. The Section Austria of the D. u. Oe. A. V. is also assisting the two Viennese, Huga Tomaschek and Willi Müller, to attempt the highest mountain in the Pamirs, Garmo peak, 25,130 ft. There will evidently be no lack of climbing in the Himalaya and the Altai next summer. (Die Alpen, Vol. VII, No. 1.)
