Missing korean girl

There are many incidents going on, as many trekkers are missing due to their lack of information and traveling alone without any guidance or any support from local guides or agencies. Recently, there was an incident in which a Korean trekker was missing for about a week. She was traveling alone to Annapurna, and due to a lack of information about the route, she was lost on the way back to Chhomrong. Being lost in a rural area is very hard as you will not be able to find any support at all. You will not even be able to get proper acclimatization or food which will be hard for survival. The Korean trekker was rescued. But there is such a place where you will not even be able to communicate which can be dangerous and you cannot be rescued. There is a lot of incident happening to trekkers due to their carelessness. Also, a French trekker died while doing the Annapurna Circuit trek alone. He was a man of age 52 who fell to the river and died on 23-Oct, nearby Tal village`s Suspension bridge (Tal-Dharapani)
