Asia, India, Swiss around Kangchenjunga

Swiss around Kangchenjunga. A Swiss expedition to the region of Kangchenjunga was reported from India in April 1949. Members were Alfred Sutter, René Dittert, Mme. Annalies Lohner and Dr. Wyss-Dunant, with the guides Adolf Rubi and Jacob Pargetzi. Professor R. N. Rahul acted as liaison officer. Several of the party were members of the Swiss expedition to Garhwal in 1947. Intentions were directed this year not toward Kangchenjunga itself, but toward other peaks in the range. Ten Sherpas and 200 coolies had been engaged.
