Everester Rajib Bhattacharya dead

Fri, May 20, 2016, 10:52 AM
Veteran Indian climber Rajib Bhattacharya died on Thursday while descending from Mount Dhaulagiri in Nepal, officials said today.

Rajib, 43, died in Camp IV after he complained of snow blindness (temporary eye damage caused by snow reflecting UV light), Migma Sherpa, of Seven Summit Treks that arranged the expedition, told IANS.

Rajib's body is still lying in the camp. Due to the treacherous terrain, it is going to be very difficult to bring the body down, he added.

Bhattacharya, a resident of Joypurbil in West Bengal's Howrah district, had climbed Mount Everest in 2011 and Mount Kanchenjunga in 2013.

Dhaulagiri, which stands at 8,167m, is the seventh highest peak in the world.
