'Little change' for Sherpas on Everest after deadly avalanche

In the Sherpa heartland, people are still reeling from the avalanche in April that killed 16 of their men on Mount Everest.

It was the worst accident in the history of the world's highest mountain - and led to Sherpas walking off the job to demand better pay and conditions.

Despite the tragedy, people in the villages of Khumbu region say they have no choice but to go back to the mountain this autumn.

The BBC's Navin Singh Khadka visited the area to meet some of those directly affected by the disaster.
