Seven trekkers missing in Rudraprayag; SDRF launches combing operation

DEHRA DUN, May 29: A State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) team with a chopper reached Rudraprayag on Saturday evening to search for seven trekkers who went missing while trekking in Pandav Shera which is at a height of 4500 metres. "Their last message was that they were injured and without any food or water," an official said.

The SDRF team arranged a chopper from the Civil Aviation department for the quick rescue operation. The trekkers from Uttarakhand were making a documentary in the Pandav Shera trekking area. There was no contact with them since Friday.

The rescue team took off from Sahastradhara helipad in Dehradun with rescue equipment and satellite phones and reached Agastyamuni helipad in Rudraprayag. From there they were to begin the rescue operation on foot.

Trekkers missing or meeting with accidents and losing life are not uncommon in Uttarakhand, considering the difficult terrain and unpredictably harsh weather conditions.

In October last, rescuers recovered the bodies of four navy personnel who went missing during an avalanche on Mt Trishul at an altitude of 6,700 metres, in Chamoli district. In July 2020, four trekkers went missing near Vasuki Tal area near Kedarnath. They were rescued.
