The search extended for nearly two years. A milestone was marked by one of the members of the Chinese-Turkish exploration team, Panda Lee, who went for a pioneer climb to witness the existence of a wood structure high above an altitude of 4,000m.
A  successfully excavated and ventured inside a large wooden structure at an elevation of more than 4,000m above sea level. Wood specimens were dated as 4,800 years old. The wood structure discovered by the team is broken, so members entered the structure through various openings. Up to now, the team has discovered seven spaces. The low temperature and environmental condition of glacier deposits and volcanic material helped the preservation.



Look here for a video of the expedition.
