According to the BBC, a British band is claiming to have set a
world record by playing a gig at the highest altitude ever, Kalar
Patar, the classic viewpoint for trekkers looking out towards
- whoever they are - apparently performed at 5545 metres in front of
approximately 100 mountaineers and trekkers to raise money for child
victims of the domestic maoist insurgency in Nepal. The gig lasted 40
minutes says the Beeb.
The Everest gig was organised by the British charity Nepal
Balabalika Trust (Trust for Nepalese Children). Full
