Another 34 trekkers and guides stranded in the Himalayas were rescued by helicopter today, Nepalese officials said.
Rescuers also found three more bodies on the Annapurna Circuit route that was hit by blizzards and avalanches last week, taking the death toll to 40.
As well as 17 Nepalese, those rescued included 10 Germans, five Swedes and two Australians, police said.
A total of 483 trekkers, guides and others have been rescued since Wednesday, including 292 foreigners. About 175 of those rescued are suffering injuries such as frostbite.
Efforts to recover bodies seen from the air also continued, but they were hampered by snow turning to ice.
