“They arrived Thursday afternoon, went sightseeing, left the other tour members late in the evening and went to bed,” officer Shreeram Giri said.

Police broke into the men’s room after the pair failed to appear for breakfast.

“One was found dead in his bed and the other appeared to have died while coming out of bathroom,” Giri said.

He said an autopsy would be carried out but declined to comment on the cause of the deaths.

More than 500,000 tourists visit Nepal every year and tourism is one of the major contributors to the economy of the impoverished Himalayan nation.
