It is with much sadness to report our fellow SP member Lao Zhao Ziyung died on September 27, 2004 (details here). His comments here have been left to give members a glimpse into Lao's life and philosophy. We hardly got to know him, for he was with SP less than a year.

This profile page will remain on SP in Lao's memory.

I am old now, but I have not stopped my explorations. Still I am routefinder on several trips a year into Taklamakan desert, Altay, Tien Shan, Pamir, Kunlun, Karakoram and Himalaya mountains. I hope my health will allow me to go on doing so for the years to come. Working for the buro of geology and minerals, I have made several ascents of easier mountains in the 1950's to 70's. I hope to add one more on next years Zanzber Kangri expedition!

Photo: Me and a family member at the grave of the great Chinese desert explorer Yu Cong Shun, who died of exhaustion and dehydration in the Lop Nur desert. I am addicted to the wilderness, I love it, and get restless after only days in the city. But if it swallows your friends it is hard, I have lost so many.....
