3 Climbers Dead And Some Sick On Mount Everest

Yaks make their way past a trekker on the way to Everest Base Camp near Gorakshep, Nepal, Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015. Earlier in August, Nepal announced the opening of Mount Everest to climbers for the first time since an earthquake-triggered avalanche in April killed 19 mountaineers and ended the popular spring climbing season. Since April’s earthquake, which killed nearly 9,000 people, Nepal has been desperate to bring back the tens of thousands of tourists who enjoy trekking the country’s mountain trails and climbing its Himalayan peaks.
