Indian mountaineer Narayan Iyer died this morning while climbing Mount Kangchenjunga, the world’s third-highest peak. This is the first accident of the spring on Mount Kangchenjunga. This information has been given by the climbing agency Pioneer Adventure. Narayanan Iyer, a resident of Maharashtra, breathed his last at an altitude of 8,200 meters.

Pasang Sherpa, president of Pioneer Adventure, said the incident happened when the 52-year-old climber refused to climb the mountain even after falling ill. His climbing guide repeatedly told the climber to descend, but Iyer declined to follow his instructions. At the same time, other climbers are now descending from Camp IV to Base Camp.

Earlier in the year 2019, two Indian climbers died on Kangchenjunga. Biplab Baidya, 48, and Kuntal Karar, 46, died of hypothermia at about 8,000 meters near Camp IV on Kanchenjunga. Meera Acharya, a liaison officer of Nepal’s Ministry of Tourism posted at the base camp, had told that Baidya had managed to climb the mountain, but Kuntal fell ill while going up, and both died.
