The mountain region which covers 23 percent of country’s area are vulnerable to earthquakes, avalanches, blizzards and debris flow. Increase in atmospheric temperature can be the possible cause in snow melt that results in avalanches. One hundred and fifty seven people were dead from avalanches that occurred between 1988-2014. Accurate and prompt weather information needs to be provided to mountaineers and trekkers. Regular health check-ups and medications support should be another priority for high altitude porters and guides.
