Small avalanches hampered the search for Nepali porters and guides missing for six days after a devastating Himalayan storm, officials said today.
"Today is the last day of the search and rescue operation," said Keshav Pandey of the Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal.
"After this we can only hope that those who are missing will establish contact with us or their families.

Pattemore, who married Bellingham in 2008, added: "Unfortunately it doesn't matter how positive I am on this one, the Good Lord is going to take her. End of.

A widow who was conned out of £11,000 by someone she met on an online dating website has warned other people in her position to be more careful with who they meet on the internet.
Anne Mather lost her husband of over 30 years to pancreatic cancer last year and began online dating when she was "ready to move on".
However, the friendly man she met online turned out to be her worst nightmare after she started giving him money to help him fund a business transaction.
Anne told Good Morning Britain she was involved in the man's life and business over a four month period, and his behaviour "was all believable".
She had fallen for the stranger's pack of lies because he knew exactly which buttons to push.
Anne explained: "This is an international business now. They are professionals. They know exactly how to hook you in, they know exactly how to target your vulnerability."
Online dating fraud in the UK costs victims a heart-breaking £24.5 million every year, with over 2,800 reported online dating related crimes in 2013 alone.
