April 13, 2023: Another attempt to retrieve the bodies of the climbers who died on Mount Everest due to an avalanche has failed. Despite going to the mountain’s base camp with their equipment and starting the first camp climb from there, the climbers were unsuccessful in retrieving the bodies of those who died on Wednesday. Some of the bodies were found above the first camp and some below it. Lakpa Sherpa, the chairman of the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC), has confirmed this news. He also mentioned that bad weather conditions have prevented helicopters from flying to the Everest base camp.

According to his statement, Simrik Air’s helicopter has been operating for rescue missions since yesterday, but the bad weather conditions have caused problems. Three Sherpas from Thesuka in Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality-5 are still stranded in the area, risking their lives.

The accident occurred at an altitude of 5,700 meters and claimed the lives of 32-year-old Tenjing Sherpa, 21-year-old Rita Sherpa, and 45-year-old Badure Sherpa. They were working as guides for an Imagin Trek expedition to climb Mount Everest. Despite efforts by the SPCC team to retrieve the bodies, they were unable to do so due to the bodies being stuck in a crevasse. The incident highlights the danger of human life on Mount Everest during the spring climbing season.
