On September 28, two mountaineers were killed in a massive avalanche in the Manaslu mountain. While more than a dozen people were injured. American climber Hilary Nelson was also found dead in this. The incident happened when an avalanche hit the road just below Camp IV. Sherpa climbers from Seven Summit Treks, Satori Adventure, Imagine Nepal Treks, Elite Expedition and 8K Expedition were injured.
Hundreds of climbers and their local guides were attempting to reach the summit during Nepal’s autumn climbing season. Nelson, from Telluride, Colorado, and Morrison, from Tahoe, California, are extreme skiers who reached the summit of Mount Lhotse, the world’s fourth-highest mountain, in 2018.
Nepal’s government has issued permits to 504 climbers during the autumn season. Most are climbing Mount Manaslu.
