2022 Oct 02, 13:12, Kathmandu

A huge avalanche hit Manaslu Base Camp on Sunday.

The incident was confirmed by Tashi Sherpa who was trying to climb the eighth-highest mountain in the world at 8,163 metres.

In a video shared by Tashi, avalanches can be seen descending toward the base camp.

He further divulged that few tents were destroyed in the avalanche with no human casualties, adding, "more than 3 dozen tents have been damaged today."

Some of the expedition companies are calling off their attempt for the season.

Notably, it comes a week after the last one, which had left two persons dead.

According to the Tourism Department of Nepal, over a dozen people were injured, including an Indian after an avalanche ripped through just below camp 4 on September 26.

The weather has not been great throughout the season. An avalanche occurred in the mountain a few days ago also.

Over 400 permits were issued by the Department of Tourism to climb Manaslu this year.
