On April 25, 2015, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. Nearly 9,000 people died and 22,000+ were injured as a result of the deadliest earthquake in the region for 81 years. The earthquake’s epicenter was 155miles from Mount Everest but it triggered an avalanche that killed 19 climbers and stranded hundreds at Base Camp or higher up the mountain. Expedition leader, Mingma G, was at Everest Base Camp leading a team of 23 climbers, 25 Sherpas and 10 supporting staff when the avalanche hit. This is his story of survival.
