Video shows final moments before Himalayas climbers died from avalanche

Video shows final moments before Himalayas climbers died from avalanche”

The 1 minute 55 second clip released by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) on Monday reveals the eight climbers roped collectively as they seize steps up an unnamed height.

The undated video shows all the eight climbers hooked in a line with a climbing rope even as the person who shot it swerves his head to record the serene and frosty climes of the peak, considered one of the most hard mountains in the Indian Himalayan ranges.

The group also included Ruth McCance from Sydney, whose husband, Trent Goldsack, said climbing was "part of her". The camera, which was carried by the final climber in the line, was later found buried in snow near where seven bodies were uncovered.

"ITBP search team of mountaineers found the memory video device at 19K ft while they were searching the area where bodies were spotted".

"Suddenly, we noticed a loud noise", he said. The video went blank and stopped. Another scene shows climbers on the mountain at night, with some using lights as they ascend. "The snow cornice must have given away due to their weight, triggering an avalanche". They took great care in removing them and bringing them down the mountain, preserving them in the snow overnight to stave off decomposition.

The mountaineers, led by veteran British climber Martin Moran, had set out to reach the top of an unclimbed, unnamed 21,250-foot ridge, but lost contact with their base camp after an avalanche swept through a section of the mountain.

"The GoPro modified into as soon as proved to be relish the unlit field of an airplane giving an insight into the previous couple of moments of the climbers, ITBP deputy inspector overall APS Nambadia stated at a press briefing".

"It will help us to analyze what went wrong with their mission".

One trekker preparing for a climb was dawn breaks. Since so few have managed to climb it, the mountain has remained pristine, unlike the littered and congested Everest.

"They were emotionally charged when they found the baby (toy) penguin".

The group was killed in an avalanche near Nanda Devi.
