Bodies of three children who were drowned in the Gokyo glacial lake on Saturday have not been retrieved yet due to bad weather and geographical difficulties, said the District Police Office. “Bodies of the children float from time to time. But we are struggling to fish them out for want of rescue materials,” said Inspector Nabin Rai.
