Indian climber missing on Annapurna

Annapurna Base camp

Kathmandu, April 17

Anurag Maloo, an Indian climber, has gone missing on Annapurna I since Monday.

His expedition operator Seven Summit Treks says Maloo slipped and fell into a crevasse near Camp II on the mountain.

Thaneswar Guragai, the general manager at Seven Summit Treks, says Maloo was descending from the mountain when he suddenly disappeared.

“Three Nepali climbers went there looking for him but haven’t found him yet,” he says.

A helicopter was on standby to look for Maloo, but poor weather has not allowed the helicopter to fly.

Over 50 climbers have reached the summit of Annapurna I this spring.
