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.

Kuriki, 35, died in the morning near Camp II of the mountain located at an altitude of 6,400 meters, Gyanendra Shrestha, a tourism ministry official, said from the mountain's Base Camp.

The 62-year-old collapsed above Camp Three at 7,200 metres (23,625 feet).

Further details were not available.

Tika Ram Gurung of Bochi-Bochi Trek in Kathmandu, which organized Kuriki's expedition, said Kuriki was descending from 7,400 meters when he slipped and died.

In his 2012 attempt, he lost most of his fingers on both hands due to frostbite.

According to Alan Arnette, who writes an extensive climbing blog, this was Kuriki's 13th attempt on an 8,000-meter peak, all without supplemental oxygen. "This was his dream and he never let it go".

The Macedonian climber's body was at a higher elevation. Second image: Nobukazu poses with Nepalese flag after speaking engagement.
