Four climbers have died while climbing the world’s highest peak- Mount Everest.

The deaths were reported since last Thursday and two others are still missing. A Rescue mission is underway to save the two missing climbers.

Sharing his experience Jon Kedrowski, a geographer and climber who summited the mountain in 2012 when 10 died, said "Everest is a mountain of extremes. At altitude, the body deteriorates on a certain level.”

Reports say that the deaths have rattled those who are climbing down from the peak.
