Nepal's army struggles to reach quake victims

Mountainous terrain mean some remote areas can only be reached by helicopter, hampering rescue efforts.

    The earthquake that claimed more than 5,000 lives across Nepal flattened homes perched on mountainsides that the military has not yet been able to reach.

    The army say that the country's terrain makes rescue operations to remote regions impossible without more manpower. 

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons joined the army on a helicopter ride to the foothills of the Himalayas.
