The 7.8 magnitude earthquake which hit Nepal has caused mayhem, leaving hundreds suspected dead. Terrible news.
Large areas of Katmandu have been reduced to rubble, with people trapped in the wreckage, and the shake triggered avalanches on Mt Everest. NOT the place you want to get caught out.
It is the worst earthquake to hit the country in 80 years and has affected 6.6million people.
Mt Everest is quite obviously a nightmare of a place to navigate and climb at the best of times. So adding an avalanche to that is terrifying.
It’s so difficult to comprehend that kind of thing happening here because it just doesn’t happen thanks to geography.
Hopefully the body count doesn’t keep raising, and everybody get’s out of it safe now.
