200 climbers scale Mt Everest, one dies

Out of a total 346 climbers of 38 expedition teams which were permitted to scale the highest peak of the world this season, some 200 have successfully climbed Mt Everest.
However, a Macedonian climber died above camp 3 at 7,200 meters on the way to the summit, according to the officials at the Tourism Ministry.
"The 62-year-old collapsed above camp 3," according to the Ministry that has confirmed that around 200 climbers have already scaled Mt Everest this season.
Before climbing big mountains, climbers first attempt to scale small peaks. That gives them idea about the altitude and temperature and will help them climb Mt Everest. The climbers of Mt Lhotse, Mt Nuptse and Mt Everest use the same base camp.
Some 10 groups of 107 climbers are attempting to climb Mt Lhotse, whereas some 40 people of three groups will be scaling Mt Nuptse.
