Bodies of all nine killed in Mt Gurja snowstorm retrieved

Heavy snowstorm and landslide buried the base camp

At least eight climbers killed on Nepal peak: officials

A renowned South Korean climber was among nine people killed when a vicious snowstorm hit their camp on Nepal's Mount Gurja, according to officials.

Meanwhile, a quick response team from the South Korean Foreign Ministry will head to Nepal on Monday afternoon to provide administrative assistance when transporting the bodies.

The permit listed four South Korean climbers, but a fifth member had joined the team later, according to Suresh Dakal of Trekking Camp Nepal.

The group of South Korean climbers and their Nepali guides had been camped at the foot of the 7,193-metre (23,599-foot) Mount Gurja since early October, waiting for a window of good weather so they could attempt to reach the summit.

It was unlikely the weather would clear on Saturday and the base camp is at least one-day trek from the nearest village.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, an amateur hiking enthusiast who visited Nepal in 2016, has expressed condolences for the climbers who died in a storm on a Nepal mountain. "The conditions were too icy to continue the search", pilot Siddartha Gurung told AFP.

The previous year, an avalanche above Everest's base camp killed 16 Nepalese Sherpa guides.

"We notified the family members of the dead climbers that it's hard to go to Nepal", the official said.

The expedition was led by experienced South Korean mountaineer Kim Chang-ho, who has climbed the world's 14 highest mountains without using supplemental oxygen. Kim achieved his feat in 2013.

Rescue helicopters were not able to land but spotted the bodies, which were retrieved Sunday.

The bodies are being kept at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital morgue, where doctors will conduct autopsies before the bodies are handed over to family members.

The highest peak in the range is the Dhaulagiri I, the seventh highest mountain in the world at 26,795 feet above sea level.

Word of the destruction got out Saturday morning, and helicopters were sent.

The climbers were also attempting to scale a 7,193-meter (23,590-foot) peak which is not among the highest, the most hard or popular mountain to climb in Nepal.
