  • Avalanche hits Nepal peak 9 climbers killed

A group of five South Korean climbers and four Nepali climbers and porters has been reported missing after a storm hit a camp on a Himalayan peak in west Nepal, officials said on Saturday.

A helicopter dropped four mountain guides at the camp where the South Korean climbing expedition was staying when powerful winds and snow swept through, killing the entire team and scattering their bodies as far as 500 metre (1,640 foot) away.

The storm prevented two rescue helicopters from landing at base camp, but the pilots also spotted the bodies from the air, the Associated Press reports.

South Korea's foreign ministry said it is closely cooperating with the Nepalese government for the retrieval of the bodies.

A police team is now making its way to the base camp on foot and will likely reach there on Sunday.

The storm is the deadliest incident to hit Nepal's mountaineering industry since 18 people were killed at the Mount Everest base camp in 2015 in an avalanche triggered by a powerful quake.

The previous year, 16 Sherpas were killed on Everest when an avalanche swept through the Khumbu Icefall during the busy spring climbing season.

Kim became the first person in the country and the fastest in the world to summit the world's 14 highest mountains without using supplementary oxygen in 2013.

Mount Gurja, which is not among the popular mountains in Nepal, lies near the 8,167-metre Dhaulagiri, the world's seventh highest peak.

Despite not being as high as other Himalayan mountains in Nepal, Mount Gurja has seen only a fraction of the climbers of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest.
