KATHMANDU, Nepal – Mountaineering officials say Nepal will extend the permits of climbers who were unable to climb Mount Everest last year due to an earthquake-triggered avalanche that killed 19 people at a base camp.

Mountaineering Department official Gyanendra Shrestha said the climbers can attempt to climb the world's tallest peak this year or next year without paying new fees.
