Thirteen Indian pilgrims were among 15 people killed when a private plane crashed in northern Nepal after hitting a hill top while trying to land at high-altitude Jomsom airport on Monday.

The Dornier aircraft belonging to the Agni Air went down when it hit the top of a hill while landing at the Jomsom airport in northern Nepal, said an official at the Rescue Coordination Committee of Tribhuvan International Airport.

Six people on board, including a crew member and five Indians, have been rescued alive from the crash site, he said.

The injured people were taken to a hospital in Pokhara where condition of the three Indians were critical.

There were altogether 18 passengers including 16 Indians and three Nepali crew members in the ill-fated aircraft.

The aircraft was heading towards Jomsom in the morning from Pokhara when it hit the hill, the official said, adding that there are possibilities of a technical fault.

The passengers had chartered the flight to take them from the central tourist hub of Pokhara to Muktinath, a famous Hindu pilgrimage in Jomsom near Tibetan border at the foot of the Thorong La Himalayan mountain pass, the official said.

The high-altitude Jomsom airport, about 200 km northwest of the capital, is a gateway to a popular tourism and trekking destination situated more than 2,600 m above sea level.
