The body of a Chinese climber was spotted Tuesday on Mount Everest, not far from where the bodies of three other climbers were found over the weekend. A Nepalese guide who had been reported missing returned to the base camp, Nepali officials said, but a Chinese national is still missing. The body of Ha Wenyi, 55, was found near the top of the 8,848-meter peak where the bodies of Nepali-born Canadian Shriya Shah, 32, German Eberhard Schaaf, 61, and Song Won-bin, 44, of South Korea, were found. The climbers were returning after reaching the top of Mount Everest, and Nepali officials said the high number of climbers—150 climbers reached the summit over the weekend—could have contributed to the deaths.
