KATHMANDU, SEPTEMBER 28- 2022

renowned ski mountaineer Hilaree Nelson has been found dead.

Nelson's body was spotted on the south face of Mt Manaslu this morning. Simirik Air helicopter had conducted aerial search for the third consecutive day and located her lifeless body on the side of Larke Peak.
