13 October, 2018, 22:48
At least seven mountaineers were killed after their camp on a Himalayan peak in western Nepal was hit by a storm, police said on Saturday, in the country's worst climbing disaster in two years.
Niraula didn't disclose the names of the missing climbers and porters and gave no further details of the incident, which involves the largest group to be hit by a climbing accident in Nepal in two years. "[A recovery team] could see the bodies of the climbers scattered near the camp". The other South Korean climbers who died have been identified as Lee Jaehun, Rim Il-jin, Yoo Youngjik, and Jeong Joon-mo.
Gurung said a rescue team would hopefully return to the camp on Sunday, if conditions improved.
A rescue helicopter sent to look for them on Saturday was prevented from landing due to poor visibility.
The storm is the deadliest incident to hit Nepal's mountaineering industry since 18 people were killed at Mount Everest's base camp in 2015 in an avalanche triggered by a powerful natural disaster.
