50 years of the expedition "Afghan '67"

Afghan 67 PlaybillFifty years ago, it was organized under the aegis of Turin SUCAI an expedition to Hindu-Kush (Afghanistan), during which climbs 11 were inviolate peaks, including the Koh-i-Sharan 6100 m. reached by the consortium of Luciano Ratto, Founder of the Club 4000, and Andrea Bonomi, Member of the Club since 2001.
In the company's anniversary, Carlo Crovella has recovered (with the collaboration of the person concerned) the original diary of Luciano Ratto and numerous photographs taken during the expedition, collecting the material in one of his "Mountain Notebooks" series that the same Crovella makes available free of charge.
The Notebook n. 4 "Afghan '67" is interesting not only for the strictly alpine, but also to illustrate the conditions of that time in Afghanistan, a country virtually inaccessible to the early' 80, helping also to understand some of the events that have touched that distant region recent years.
A presentation of "Afghan '67" you can read on "Mountains and Valleys" site; The publication is sent free of charge in pdf format to anyone who requests it, following the instructions on playbill attached.
