American climber on Mount Everest dies, the third death on world's highest mountain in the past month: https://t.co/XIwsDy74Rr pic.twitter.com/tt1eAz9Ygz - Reuters Top News (@Reuters) May 21, 2017 With a summit reaching 29,035 feet, Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in the world.

An Australian man is among three climbers to die on Mount Everest on Sunday, as high winds and storms saw many climbers abandon summit attempts.

Murari Sharma, from the Everest Parivas trekking company that sponsored his climb, said: 'We have confirmation of his death but no other details are known.

A spokesman for Nepal's Tourism Department said the circumstances leading to Strba's death were not clear.

Ravi Kumar from Moradabad went missing on Saturday, Thupten Sherpa of Kathmandu-based Arun Treks said.

Mountaineers posted photos of the crumbling rock on social media, warning that the collapse would make summit attempts more hard in the future.

Climbers from the United States, Slovakia and Australia also died on the mountain over the weekend, reported DC.

The 54-year-old from Queensland was reportedly hit by altitude sickness after reaching 7,500m and died as he was trying to descend.

Last year Everest claimed the lives of five climbers, while a total of 640 people summited from both sides of the mountain. Marchetti died on the Chinese side of the mountain.

An Indian climber, meanwhile, fell ill while on his way down from the summit on Saturday and did not make it to the nearest camp, located at South Col, at a height of approximately 8,000 metres.

The deaths come as the famous Hillary Step - a 12m cliff face presenting a final challenge to climbers at the very top of Mount Everest - collapsed, according to mountaineers. According to reports, the 50-year-old man was carried to the South Cal camp by his fellow climbers. In 2015, after he survived the natural disaster on Everest, his wife said that nothing could faze him.

Three Sherpa rescuers have been flown by helicopter to Camp 2, from where they were climbing up the mountain to help search for Kumar.

Yearwood, who headed to the Tibetan side to attempt to climb Mt Everest in 2015, was one of the survivors on the mountain when a devastating natural disaster struck Nepal in April 25 that year killing almost 9,000 people.
