A year ago, at the start of the climbing season for Mount Everest, 16 Sherpas died in an avalanche on the world’s tallest mountain. The season was over for foreign climbers, and the disaster led to demands for better pay for the locals who make the ascents possible, and larger payouts to the families of those who were killed. A new season is about to begin, and the lost are remembered in Nepal.
