Three Tibetan guides and one Australian tourist died in a slide on Mount Everest early this week. Xinhua News Agency reports the four men were part of a ten-person group that traveled to an off-limits area on Sunday. The group, lead by a local tourist agency, camped at the foot of the mountain without permission and was hit by a large avalanche.

Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.

Most unfortunate luck of the draw. So close but yet so far. RIP.
