The bodies of nine climbers killed on Nepal's Mount Gurja were retrieved on Sunday (Oct 14) as rescuers tried to piece together what led to the freak accident, the deadliest to hit the Himalayan nation's mountaineering industry in recent years.
Mr Gurung landed a helicopter just above the expedition team's camp and attempted to descend to the campsite with a group of local villagers, but icy and unstable conditions meant they were unable to retrieve any of the bodies.
The bodies were found by a search helicopter sent by the Korean Embassy on Saturday, when expedition organizers raised the alarm after they lost contact with the team for almost 24 hours.
"The bodies of all five Koreans and four Nepalis have been identified", Budhamagar said from Myagdi district where the disaster took place.
A police team was reportedly heading toward the base camp on foot, Budamagar said.
