Bodies of Spanish trekker, guides recovered from Nepal slide
The body of a Spanish trekker and two Nepalese guides were recovered from a landslide and flown to Kathmandu on Friday, while 15 more people are getting treated at a hospital in Kathmandu, rescuers and official said.
Tshering Lama, who is coordinating the rescue, said the body of one of the Nepalese trekkers got “washed away” in a river and attempts are being made to find it.
Government administrator Narayan Prasad Bhatta said the bodies were loaded on a helicopter and flown to Tribhuwan University Teaching Hospital morgue in Kathmandu.
The bodies of the Nepalese guides were expected to be handed over to their families, but arrangements for the Spanish trekker were unclear.
There is no Spanish embassy in Nepal. The group was trekking near Mount Manaslu when a landslide swept them off the trail on Thursday near Kerauja village.
