Abstract

In Uyghur Turkic language, Karakorum roughly means “black crumbling rocks” (kara = black; korum = gravel). But there are in fact many more colours than just black in the Karakorum mountains. Three of them are red, white, and green. These three colours, were waving in the wind on the second-highest but perhaps one of the toughest-to-climb mountains on Earth. Achille Compagnoni was trampling snow on the top of K2 in the company of Lino Lacedelli and thanks to the heroism of Walter Bonatti and the Hunza Amir Mahdi. Chief of the triumphal expedition was Ardito Desio, geologist and explorer of Italian colonies, founder of the Geological Institute at Milano University. - (NF)
