A private airline plane in Nepal went missing on Sunday with 22 people on board, Reuters reported citing airline and government officials.

They said the small plane was flying from the tourist town of Pokhara, 200 km northwest of the capital Kathmandu, to Jomsom, about 80 km northwest. The plane is operated by Tara Air, which mainly flies Canadian-made Twin Otter planes.

An airline spokesman said four Indians and two other foreigners were aboard the plane, though their nationalities were not known.

Nepal, home to the world's tallest mountain, has a history of accidents on its vast domestic air network, with variable weather and runways in inaccessible mountainous areas.
