Remains of Pakistani mountaineering legend Muhammad Ali Sadpara, Iceland's John Snorri and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile found at world's second-highest peak, but "it is very difficult to bring dead bodies down", officials say.
The latest deaths further mar a treacherous winter season after two climbers died on its slopes since January, and a third mountaineer was lost during an acclimatising mission on a nearby peak.
The climbers made history as they reached the peak of what is known as the "Savage Mountain" where winds can blow at more than 200 kilometres per hour and temperatures can drop to minus 60 degrees Celsius.
