Two bodies have been found above K2’s Camp 4 just below the bottleneck, suspected to be either of Pakistani mountaineer Ali Sadpara, John Snorri or Juan Pablo Mohr, who had lost their lives in February of this year while attempting to summit the mountain during the winters.

Sajid Sadpara, along with Canadian filmmaker Elia Saikaly and Pasang Kaji Sherpa, is on a trek to find the bodies of his father Ali Sadpara, John Snorri, and Pablo Mohr.

They reached Camp 4 this morning and flew a drone around the area in search of the dead bodies, sources said.

They were able to detect a body above Camp 4 near the bottleneck, however, they are yet to identify who the deceased person is.

The last Instagram update made by Elia Saikaly two days back said that they had begun their “final search and summit attempt”
