Trekkers are still being rescued in northern Nepal.
Most of those who were stranded by deadly blizzards have been rescued or moved to safer areas, but there are still some left on the route where they were hiking, and efforts to reach them continue.
Snowstorms and avalanches hit the region at the height of the October trekking season, leaving at least 38 people dead, including four Canadians. Nine bodies were spotted Saturday by a rescue helicopter.
Also among the dead and injured are some local villagers and Nepalese guides.
