Swiss mountaineer Abdul Waraich, 41, and US citizen Puwei Liu, 55, died of exhaustion on Wednesday, while descending the slopes of the 8,849-meter-high mountain.
According to Seven Summit Treks Manager Thaneshwar Guragai, who was supporting the climbers, additional sherpas were sent with supplies and oxygen, but unfortunately they could not save them.
Waraich, who was on his way down after reaching the summit, died near the south summit.
Meanwhile, Liu could not reach the summit of Everest and died on descent near a 7,900-meter camp at the South Col, after suffering snow blindness and exhaustion.
It is estimated that at least 311 people have died on the slopes of the world’s highest mountain.
The conquest of that mountain is highly coveted by every adventurer, but the dangers of climbing pose a great risk.
