SOLUKHUMBU, APR 12 – Some 30 expedition teams have already reached Mt Everest base camp as the new climbing season begins this year.

The number of arrivals is on the rise with the icefall doctors speeding up their work to open the route atop the world’s highest mountain, said member of an expedition team Angphula Sherpa.

More than 800 Nepalis have already reached the base camp to support the expedition team, mainly foreigners. The number of mountaineers is expected to increase as the expedition last season was cancelled after 16 mountaineers and their guide perished in avalanche, added Sherpa.

Meanwhile, Angsarki Sherpa, an icefall doctor was injured while clearing up the route in the Sagarmath base camp. He has suffered a fractured leg and was airlifted to Kathmandu for treatment.
