Nepal Tourist Helicopter Crash Near Mount Everest Claims Six Lives

Six people lost their lives in a helicopter crash near Mount Everest

An incident near Mount Everest caused the death of six people as a helicopter crashed, leaving a trail of sorrow and grief behind. There have been shockwaves throughout the world and across the nation since the incident occurred on Tuesday, July 11, 2023.

The helicopter was operated by Manang Air, which specializes in providing tourists with breathtaking views of Nepal’s awe-inspiring peaks, including Mount Everest, which is the world’s tallest peak.

Teknath Sitoula, a spokesperson for Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport, said the ill-fated helicopter carried five Mexican passengers and a Nepali pilot. It took off from the Solukhumbu district, home to Mount Everest, at 10:05 a.m. Tuesday morning (12:20 a.m. ET), heading for the capital city, Kathmandu.

At 10:13 a.m., the helicopter lost communication less than 10 minutes after takeoff. The wreckage was discovered in Likhupike, a rural municipality in Solukhumbu. Residents and police who arrived at the crash site saw the lifeless bodies of all passengers.

The recovery process has begun to transport the victims’ remains to Kathmandu. The bodies need to be transported by road and then flown to the capital, Sitoula said. A thorough investigation will be conducted by the authorities to uncover the cause of this tragic accident.

Due to its inclement weather, low visibility, and mountainous terrain, Nepal is notoriously dangerous for aviation.

An aircraft went down near Pokhara in central Nepal in January, killing at least 68 people. In over 30 years, this was the deadliest plane crash in the Himalayan nation.

The recent helicopter crash in Nepal is a tragic reminder of the risks and dangers associated with air travel in challenging terrains.

Authorities and the aviation industry will improve safety measures as the investigation unfolds. Wishing eternal peace and strength to the lost souls, and comfort to their loved ones.
