A 64-year-old Japanese man has fallen to his death on a popular trekking route in western Nepal, officials said Thursday.

Masashi Nagasawa, who was on an 11-day Annapurna Sanctuary trek with three other Japanese nationals, fell from a cliff Wednesday while returning to his hotel on Mardi Himal after spending time at a nearby viewpoint. Mardi Himal is a long rising ridge on the southwest of the Machhapuchare peak.
