It is difficult question. But in my view some time they arrive to the cross road and could not find out the right trail which trail leads to their destination. If luck doesn’t favors then they will get nervous and can have serious sickness. So they can arrive anywhere in the mountains. If some local people visit them they can bring them to right place otherwise no one can say…..
Some time when they are taking photos of wonderful views they forget their backside how small the trail is and fell down in the gorge or river. Then nobody knows.
High altitude sickness is the very dangerous for individual tourist. If he or she is known by other tourist or guide would be helped and could be survive.
