FILE - In this May 22 2013 file photo, climbers descend Khumbu Icefall on their way back to Base Camo after summitting the 8,850-meter (29,035-foot) Mount Everest. With its dreams of covering a daredevil's attempt to jump off Mount Everest over, the Discovery network is instead making a documentary on the avalanche, Friday, 18, 2014, that killed more than a dozen mountain guides. Discovery President Eileen O'Neill said Tuesday, April 22,  the network hopes to air the film within the next few weeks. Discovery will encourage viewers to donate to a relief fund for families of the Sherpa guides killed in the disaster. Several of the Sherpas killed were helping prepare for American Joby Ogwyn's planned jump from the summit in a wingsuit. Discovery planned to show the stunt on live television May 11.(AP Photo/ Pasang Geljen Sherpa, FIle)

Buddhist monks cremated the remains of Sherpa guides who were buried in the deadliest avalanche ever recorded on Mount Everest, a disaster that has prompted calls for a climbing boycott by Nepal's ethnic Sherpa community.

In this picture taken early Sunday, April 20, 2014, Ibrahim Abdulghani, 32, leads his horse loaded with the belongings of Syrian refugees as he descends from the 2,814-meter (9,232-foot) high Mount Hermon (Jabal el-Sheikh), in southeast Lebanon. Abdulghani, from Syria, works as a construction worker during the day in Lebanon and volunteers at night to help Syrians escape.  Only the most desperate risk the perilous journey, Abdulghani said. The list of dangers, he said, runs long: crossfire from clashes; snipers; airstrikes; snow in winter and pouring rain in spring. For fear of being spotted by snipers while climbing up the mountain on the Syrian side, smoking is prohibited. “They can light up a cigarette when they descend into Lebanon,” he said.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
