Rest of Everest Special Report: Violence In Lhasa, Tibet

Violence in Lhasa And Everest Closures. As many of you know, Tibet has been in the news of late with violence in the capital city of Lhasa. There’s also been news that China has closed the North side of Everest to foreign climbing teams until the 10th of May, 2008. I’ve invited friend and Everest climber Alan Arnette to join me to discuss these stories.

Alan was scheduled to be departing for Lhasa via Kathmandu in just over a week’s time. Obviously the riots and closures have changed those plans.

If you’d like to stay up to date with Alan and his plan to climb Everest, please visit his excellent website at

Stay tuned because we’ll be returning to Lhasa tomorrow as I release the next video episode of the podcast.

If you have any questions or comments about this episode, please email me at

Thanks for listening.
