A Spanish mountaineer fell to his death while descending from the summit of a Nepalese Himalayan mountain on Jan 19, the climbing team’s Kathmandu agent said on Sunday.
Guillermo Mateo Yeste, 47, a climbing instructor from Madrid, had reached the 6,812 metre high (22,349 ft) summit of Everest’s neighbour, Mount Ama Dablam, and then fell 35 minutes after leaving the top, the agent, Ganesh Neupane, told Reuters. Mateo fell about 300 metres and his team-mates could see his body, Neupane said, adding efforts were on to retrieve it. Every year, thousands of foreign climbers visit Nepal, home to eight of the world’s highest peaks.

Rescue services are hoping to retrieve his body by helicopter, as the terrain in the area where he fell is extremely difficult to reach on foot. The Nepalese authorities are also searching for two other mountaineers who disappeared on Monday while descending Ama Dablan. They are Duncan Williams, from Britain, and Mingma Nuru Sherpa, from Nepal.
