“We had come here for adventure and celebrate Everest”…..Pleaseeee Mt.Everest is not a carnival festival or a toy……the sooner that people understand that it is a very very dangerous game. Please follow the local tradition to RESPECT the mountain and be wary of the calamity it can inflict. What you see now is only a fraction of Nature’s fury….so imagine what may happen if mother Nature unleashes her full powers.

My sympathy to these brave men that were lost/injured. I have a hard time understanding the attraction in climbing Everest, but then I hate the cold, am terrified of heights and now at my age even hate to camp in a tent. If, you are an adrenalin junkie I would think there are places to get your “fix” that offer comfortable conditions, but still allow you to indulge your addiction.
