Two Indian climbers died on Mount Kanchenjunga after falling sick while descending from the peak of the world's third highest mountain, their hiking company said on Thursday.
The climbers, identified as Biplab Baidya (48) and Kuntal Karna (46) died of altitude sickness at an altitude of 8400 meters while descending. Their bodies will be airlifted to Nepal's capital Kathmandu, likely on Friday, reported Xinhua.
"We have mobilised a team to rescue Rodrigo who has gone missing above Camp IV on the descent after he reportedly made it to the summit," said Pasang Sherpa, director of Peak Promotion hiking company.
