Video: Everest base camp consumed by avalanche
Issued on: Modified:
A climber at Mount Everest’s base camp caught on camera the terrifying moment an avalanche thundered down from the world’s highest mountain after a massive earthquake battered Nepal on Saturday.
As the earthquake struck, Jost Kobusch switched on his camera to film the reactions of other climbers, and was quickly aware of the avalanche tearing down the mountain.
At least 18 people were killed by the avalanche at Mount Everest, while the death toll across the country surpassed 3,200 on Monday.
