Mountain guide will not return to Everest

Speaking exclusively to Al Jazeera, former Sherpa says he will not continue to be a guide following deadly avalanche.

    At least 13 Sherpa climbing guides were killed after an avalanche struck on Mount Everest last week. Three of their colleagues are still missing and presumed dead.

    After the scale of this most recent tragedy, many guides are reluctant to return to the mountain's passes.

    Ang Tshering, the president of Nepal's Mountaineering Association, says he seeks to address the concerns of Sherpas, who face many dangers in their work.

    Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman, reporting from Kathmandu, Nepal's capital, has spoken exclusively to one of the survivors of the avalanche.
