Bhupendra Bhai Patel, a 57-year-old tourist from Gujarat, India, passed away on Monday in Mustang, succumbing to altitude sickness. Deputy Superintendent Bhoj Raj Pandey of Mustang Police reported that Patel experienced severe altitude sickness while on his way to Muktinath and tragically lost his life at Ranipauwa of Baragung Muktichhetra rural municipality-1.

Patel, who had embarked on the journey to Muktinath in the company of friends and relatives, encountered altitude-related health complications. Prompt intervention by the authorities led to his evacuation to Jomsom Hospital for medical attention. Regrettably, despite the efforts of medical professionals, Patel was pronounced dead at the hospital.

A team, under the leadership of Police Inspector Milan BK, played a crucial role in rescuing Patel and ensuring his swift transportation to the hospital. The incident unfolded against the backdrop of adverse weather conditions, with the Muktinath region experiencing continuous snowfall since Saturday. The frigid temperatures have disrupted normal life in the area, further underscoring the challenges posed by the harsh climate.
