As the death toll from the devastating Nepal Earthquake continues to climb, a group of New Zealanders touched down in Aotearoa this morning.
Peter Hillary, son of Sir Ed, was leading a group of his old school mates on a trek to Everest Base Camp when the earthquake struck - triggering an avalanche that killed dozens on the mountain.
Peter said as they returned down the mountain it became increasing apparent how widespread the disaster was.
