Hiker reveals how he survived six days lost in Yosemite

A California hiker rescued after six days missing in Yosemite Nationwide Park revealed how he survived the park’s icy conditions alone — and it’s unusually basic.

Alan Chow, 36, set out for a solo shuttle in Yosemite on Feb. 17, however he lost his way as a result of snow-coated trails and freezing temperatures.

A 60-particular person rescue crew was deployed within the park three days later, after a colleague suggested Chow missing.

Helicopter crews discovered the backpacker stranded above Wapama Falls, located near the middle of Yosemite Park.

A Day after his rescue, Chow published on Facebook that he used to be recuperating after suffering a sprained ankle and “slight malnutrition.”

in the post, Chow also credited survival tips that helped him bear the grueling conditions and increase his possibilities of being spotted.

“For those who are excited by how I controlled to survive, I merely followed the basic survival skills that I discovered,” Chow mentioned. “Kept as regards to a water supply, conserved my energy, rationed out food provides, attempted to keep heat, and located an acceptable area to setup camp in order that i might be as visual from the air as imaginable.”

Chow also thanked an extended list of rescue squads, including Yosemite National Park Rangers and California Freeway Patrol.

“Phrases can not specific my gratitude and that i will likely be indebted to you keen on the remaining of my lifestyles,” Chow stated. “i might also like to thank my colleagues from Alameda County SSA, and everybody on social media who contributed to the hunt effort with information and an outpouring of love and emotional toughen.”

Chow made no point out of a go back to Yosemite.
