Climbers’ bodies found Mt. Annapurna

KATHMANDU, Apr 2: Rescuers have located the bodies of a Finnish climber and a Nepali guide who fell into a crevasse while descending Mount Annapurna last week, expedition organisers said on Wednesday.

Samuli Mansikka and Pemba Sherpa slipped and fell into a cracked glacier after a successful summit of the 8,091-metre mountain eight days ago.

However, helicopters cannot land in the area and it’s difficult for people to reach the crevasse and pull out the bodies.
