TAIPEI, Taiwan — Freshly rescued Taiwanese hiker Liang Sheng-yu (梁聖岳) said his
girlfriend had died just three days before a search party found them on a cliff in the Himalayas.
The couple went hiking in Dhading District through a Kathmandu-based commercial adventure company, Asian Trekking, on March 8, with the last update on their whereabouts dating to March 9.
The couple went missing while trying to descend to Somdang Valley in heavy snowfall.
Forty-seven days later, rescuers found 21-year-old Liang alive and Liu Chen-chun (劉宸君), 18, dead by a cliff at the bottom of a waterfall, according to Madhav Basnet, a rescuer who works for Asian Trekking.
The couple was apparently following the Ganesh Himal route when they encountered bad weather conditions. [FULL STORY]
