As Nepal prepares for the busiest mountaineering season of the year, three climbers have gone missing in the Everest region, say officials.

Yubaraj Khatiwada, a director at the Department of Tourism, says Da Chhiri Sherpa, Lhakpa Tendi Sherpa and Pemba Tenzing Sherpa are missing from 9:30 am on Wednesday.

They were heading towards camp 1 from the base camp carrying rope-fixing tools and other logistics for other climbers.

A Simrik Airlines helicopter has been mobilised in the search.
