"A Bulgarian woman died in a snow storm in the Himalayas," India's DNA news agency reported as quoted by Bulgaria's Nova TV.
The incident occurred when a group of 130 climbers was caught in a massive snow storm near the Se La mountain pass in India's state of Arunachal Pradesh.
An army unit went to rescue the stranded mountaineers and managed to save the rest of the group, including citizens of Japan, Bulgaria and New Zealand.
The military said the Bulgarian woman fell into a precipice while she was trying to make it out of the storm on her own.
Her body was discovered at about midnight local time.
