Climbers leave mountain 13 days after losing contact with outsiders


13:55, October 12, 2011

CHENGDU, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- A group of 14 mountain climbers that had lost contact with outsiders for 13 days have walked out of the mountains in southwest China, local authorities said Wednesday.

The travelers are all in good health, said sources with the administrative bureau of the mountain in the Aba Prefecture of Sichuan Province.

The group, including nine tourists from Shanghai and Zhejiang, one local guide and four porters, lost contact with outsiders after entering the Haizi Ravine, a famous tourist site in the prefecture, on Sept. 30.

The group took longer than expected to traverse bushes as a 2008 earthquake had changed the landscape of the mountain, sources said.

Relatives of the mountain climbers reported the case to the local administration on Sunday and the Aba government then mobilized a rescue team for the search.
