The bodies of four people were found in a tent near the last base camp before the conquest of the summit of Everest.
The ascent of foreigners – male and female – and two Nepalese guides found no signs of life of the conductors of the company Seven Summit Treks, which let down the body of Slovak Vladimir Strba, who died last Sunday. Presumably, the climbers were suffocated by the lack of oxygen inside the tent.
The names of the victims are not yet named. In the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Nepal stated that they collect information about the dead by bit. It is known that they made an ascent within the expedition of the new tracking company and on Sunday ceased to communicate. The time of death of the climbers found is also not yet established.
