The bodies were found by a team searching for the body of Slovak mountaineer Vladimir Strba, who died over the weekend.

Four bodies have been found inside a tent at the highest camp on Mount Everest.

Authorities said the four bodies were found by a group who were there to recover the body of Slovak mountain climber Vladimir Strba, who died over the weekend.

The identities of the other dead climbers in the tent are as yet unknown.

Ang Tshering Sherpa, the leader of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, said conditions on the mountain were windy on Tuesday.

He said Mr. Strba’s body has been conveyed down to Camp Two at 6,400 meters (21,000 feet). And is required to be conveyed down to base camp later on Wednesday.

Six climbers have as of yet died attempting to reach the 8,850m (29,035ft) summit amid this climbing season

The climbing season closes this month.

The Nepalese Tourism Department issued a record 371 grants this year to individuals planning to scale the mountain.

The high number this year is likely in light of the fact that many individuals were not able to climb in 2014 and 2015. Due to torrential avalanches that upset the climbing seasons.
