Nepal reassures Everest climbers on safety a year after deadly avalanche

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Nepal will arrange regular weather forecasts and tighten safety measures on Mount Everest to reassure climbers, an official said on Monday, after an avalanche killed 16 sherpas last year in the worst disaster in the history of the world's highest mountain.

The country's climbing season starts in March and runs through May, attracting hundreds of climbers who are expected to ascend the 8,850-metre (29,035-foot) mountain by the normal South East Ridge route.
