Seven Climbers’ Bodies Found in Himalayas

Uttarakhand – Indian paramilitary soldiers have reached the bodies of seven of eight members from a team of international climbers, including an Australian, believed killed on a notoriously dangerous Himalayan mountain.

An administrator of Uttarakhand state, Vijay Jogdande, said the soldiers reached the bodies on Sunday (Monday NZ time) but they had yet to be identified.

The bodies will now be brought from where they were found at an altitude of more than 5000 metres to the base camp.

Five bodies believed to be from the missing team were spotted by air nearly two weeks ago.

Ground expeditions by the Indian paramilitary forces and the Indian Mountaineering Foundation were launched after helicopter missions failed to reach the area because of bad weather.

The search for the missing eighth mountaineer will continue, Jogdande said.

HS Chauhan, president of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation, said authorities would decide on an air evacuation of the bodies depending on weather conditions.

Ground expeditions also are in the area for the task.
