Snowstorm on Mount Everest

Three Sherpas have died in an avalanche in the Khumbu Icefall while climbing Mount Everest. Additionally, three Sherpas from the Khumjung village municipality-5 died while descending from Camp I to Lower Tengboche. Lamakaji Sherpa, the chairman of the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee, provided the information.

The deceased in the avalanche in the Khumbu Icefall are Temba Tenji Sherpa (32y/o), Lakpa Rita Sherpa (22y/o), and Badure Sherpa (45 y/o), who guided Image Treks Pvt. Ltd. The cause of the incident that led to the death of the guide was due to the collapse of a glacier that buried the body in a crevice.

According to Deputy Superintendent of Police, Dipak Shrestha, the body was being prepared to be transported by helicopter for post-mortem. However, the recovery attempt of the bodies in the crevice was unsuccessful despite the efforts of the SPCS team that went to the scene.

Since the incident happened in a deep crevice, our team was unable to recover the bodies,” said SPCS chairman Sherpa, according to Kantipur media. The beginning of the spring climbing season on Mount Everest has already seen human casualties.

According to the Director of the Tourism Department, Yuvaraj Khatiwada, they have advised climbers to proceed with caution as the climbing season during the spring season is prone to human casualties.
