Four Killed, 13 Injured in Nepal Landslide

KATHMANDU – A Spanish national and three Nepalese Sherpas were killed in a landslide in north-central Nepal, local authorities told EFE on Thursday.

Thirteen others sustained injuries of varying degrees of seriousness – including six in critical condition – and were airlifted to a Kathmandu hospital.

“They have suffered injuries to their limbs and chests and are being treated by the hospital’s trauma unit,” Vayodha Hospital’s director, Ravi Chaudhary, told EFE.

Gorkha Chief District Officer Narayan Prasad Bhatta informed that, according to preliminary data, a team of 19 people – 14 Spaniards and five Nepalese – was trekking on Mount Manaslu early on Thursday when they were surprised by a sudden mudslide.

According to Bhatta, the strong rainfall registered in the area on Wednesday and Thursday was the probable cause of the mudslide, which occurred at a bridge connecting Uiya-Kerauja along Mt. Manaslu’s popular trekking trail.

He added that authorities were still gathering information on the earthfall.

Mt. Manaslu is the eighth-highest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters (26,781 feet) above sea level and forms part of the towering Himalayan mountain range.
