5 climbers feared dead on world’s 3rd highest peak

KATHMANDU, NEPAL (TIP): A Nepalese official says five climbers are missing and feared dead on the world’s third highest mountain. The five disappeared on Monday on Mount Kanchenjunga, and bad weather was preventing a rescue helicopter from reaching the base camp.

Mountaineering Department official Dipendra Poudel said Friday the climbers were descending from the summit when they were believed to have slipped at 7,900 meters (25,900 feet) altitude. Two climbers are Hungarian, two are Nepalese and another is Korean. Kanchenjunga is 8,586 meters (28,162 feet) high.
