Tintin is on holiday with captain Haddock in Switzerland. They are at their
hotel when they learn that a DC3 of the line Patna-Katmandu has crashed
during a storm in the mountains near Gosainthan. Some time later, he recieves
a letter from Tchang, a friend who he rescued from drowning when he
travelled in China. Tchang tells him that he's coming to Europe, after a
short stop in Katmandu. To his horror, Tintin realises that Tchang is one
of the persons on the crashed plane. There is little or no hope of finding
them alive. Tintin can't give up on his friend and decides to go to Tibet to
search for Tchang...
