This is terrifying. German climber Jost Kobusch was at Everest Base Camp as the earthquake that devastated Nepal, hit Everest too. You can see the people realise the ground was shaking and then immediately get hit by a horrific avalanche right after. So sad.

It’s so scary that the time to process the earthquake had hit and the incoming avalanche was coming was only a few seconds. 18 people died in the avalanche.

The video has NSFW language.
