Gjeorgi Petkov, from Republic of Macedonia, breathed his last above Camp III on Mt Everest after he suffered a cardiac arrest while heading for Yellow Band to prepare for the final summit push, Kami Nuru Sherpa, a base camp manager, told THT.

Speaking by telephone from base camp, Gyanendra Shrestha, an official with the Nepalese Ministry of Tourism, said Mr. Kuriki's body would be airlifted to Kathmandu, the capital, for an autopsy to ascertain the exact cause of death. Kuriki and another climber died on Mount Everest on Monday.

In 2015, he tried again to scale the peak in the autumn climbing season, just months after devastating quakes killed almost 9,000 people in Nepal and halted expeditions on the mountain.

Officials said his body was found in his tent at about 24,000 feet.

Mr. Gurung, the expedition organizer, said Mr. Kuriki had also died near Camp Three.

"Sherpas found his body inside the tent", Shrestha said.

It is unlikely Kuriki made the summit.

It was his eighth attempt to scale the world's highest mountain.

"I feel the pain and difficulty of this mountain", a post said.

"Kuriki-san had become a legend in Japan with his Everest attempts and going so far as to lose [nine] fingers to frostbite [in a 2012 attempt]", Arnette wrote.

Born in Hokkaido, Kuriki climbed the highest peaks of six continents, falling one short of entering the elite club of climbers who have scaled the highest summits on all seven continents. "This was his dream and he never let it go".

Two other climbers died on the world's tallest peak over the same weekend. Second image: Nobukazu poses with Nepalese flag after speaking engagement.
