Kenyan climber dies on Everest, Nepali guide missing


KATHMANDU, May 23, 2024 (BSS/AFP) - A Kenyan climber has died close to Everest's summit and his Nepali guide is missing, a tourism official said Thursday, taking this season's toll on the world's highest mountain to at least three. Joshua Cheruiyot Kirui, 40, and his Nepali guide Nawang Sherpa, 44, went out of contact Wednesday morning, and a search team was deployed on the 8,849-metre (29,032-foot) high mountain. Search parties also continue to look for a 40-year-old British climber and 21-year-old Nepali guide who have been missing since Tuesday morning after an ice fall collapsed as they descended from Everest's peak. Earlier this month, two Mongolian climbers went missing after reaching Everest's summit and were later found dead. Two more climbers, one French and one Nepali, have died this season on Makalu, the world's fifth-highest peak.
