Rescuers retrieve bodies of 3 Indian climbers from Everest

Rescuers retrieve bodies of 3 Indian climbers from Everest

"The other two bodies have been identified as that of Paresh Nath and Gautam Ghosh, both from West Bengal".

A year ago was also considered a successful season, during which hundreds reached the top but five climbers died.

The bodies of Goutam Ghosh and Paresh Nath, two other Indian climbers who died previous year but whose remains could not be retrieved because of bad weather, were also brought to Kathmandu.

"Rescue operation was carried out by the local people, Nepali Army and police personnel", Pasang Sherpa who witnessed the scene said.

He is believed to have fallen nearly 200m (650 feet) to his death and his body was spotted on Monday by Sherpa rescuers, Associated Press reported.

Kumar was associated with Summit Trek Private Limited, Kathmandu.

The guide was earlier found unconscious at Camp 4, just below 8,000 metres, with severe frostbite.

The plane hit a mountain about 20 meters (66 feet) below the runway of Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla, the gateway to Mount Everest, said government administrator Umesh Pandey.

"We are deeply sad, but also proud of him".

A small plane carrying only crew members and cargo crashed near Mount Everest on Saturday, killing one of the pilots, Nepalese officials said.

All the fatalities occurred in or near the so-called "death zone", where oxygen levels are extremely low.

More than 200 people have died on Everest since 1920, with the vast majority of those deaths taking place since 1980.

Climbers ascend Mt Everest from two sides - the north face from China and the South face from Nepal.

Rescuers find it hard to bring back bodies of climbers who die in remote or difficult-to-access locations.

Everest's popular spring mountaineering season runs through the end of May, after which the weather conditions will deteriorate, making it impossible to climb the world's highest peak. Some bodies are said to reappear as the glaciers move.
