As soon we received the call a group was sent to the site from where the tourists had contacted us,” the Agency stated.

They said the search operation was underway for several hours due to poor vision and a difficult relief.

They were found on the territory near villages Roshka and Juta. Nearby the rescuers also found three French and three Ukrainian tourists who had also gotten lost,” the Agency stated.

The tourists were accommodated at one of the hotels in the Roshka village.
