The Tara Air turboprop Twin Otter was on a 20-minute flight Sunday when it the lost contact with the airport tower while flying in an area of deep river gorges and mountaintops just before it was scheduled to land.

The army said the plane crashed in Sanosware in Mustang district close to the mountain town of Jomsom where it was heading after taking off from from the resort town of Pokhara, 200 kilometers (125 miles) west of Kathmandu.

“The weather is very bad but we were able to take a team to the crash site. No other flight has been possible,” he said.

There were 19 passengers and three crew members on board the Twin Otter aircraft, operated by Nepali carrier Tara Air, when it went missing on Sunday.

They included four Indians, two Germans, and 16 Nepalis, according to the airline and government officials.

The plane had taken off from the tourist town of Pokhara at 9:55 am (0410 GMT) on Sunday, and was bound for Jomsom, a popular pilgrimage site about 80 km (50 miles) to the northwest of Pokhara.

It was on a 20-minute scheduled flight, but lost contact with the airport tower close to landing in an area of deep river gorges and mountaintops.

Weather and darkness had halted the search overnight, but an army helicopter and private choppers resumed the search on Monday morning.
